Consignment software for UK
24 Jun 2006
Hi, just discovered this site. I realise this has been discussed previously but i'm interested in people's views on the consignment software currently available for the UK.

AuctionWagon's G2 software sounds good on paper, but the likes of AuctionTeller appear to be considerably cheaper. Any comments / recommendations from people who've used these and any other consignment software packages in the UK would be great. Thanks!

Donald,

That depends a little on your plans, e.g. one drop-off point versus several, centralised processing versus in each drop-off point, specialisation in a certain area of merchandise to what your technical expertise is.

Hi, it is needed for one location only, but probably using two connected computers. It's not for any specialised area, just general sales. I'll try out some of the free trials and see what comes of that. Thanks.

Maybe it's just our misguided calculations but at Auctioning4u we believe that one needs to process hundreds of items per day to have a chance to make money being a trading assistant (i.e. selling individual items). We have more than 50 members of staff and are still not at that type of capacity. So I wonder if you plans will ever work.

Of course that would be very different if you want to run multiple items (i.e. a small number of SKUs with hundrerd for sale of each of them).

In terms of software you can really use almost any product for the former since you capacity will be small enough (that being said no available software package is really designed for the needs of a trading assistant), for the later there are plenty of products (ChannelAdvisor, Marketworks and others - just see the various discussions on this forum).
