Why should I consign with Consign On A Dime?
We have a proven track record of quick turnover due to the high quality inventory we accept. Let us do the work for you. You receive a guaranteed, timely payment, from the sell of your items. A bar coded inventory system is used in our company to ensure tracking information and prompt payment.
How do you price my items?
Consign On A Dime strives to get you the highest possible price for your merchandise, however, we also strive to price items at a realistic, fair market value that will sell within 30 days. We will gather information from you, i.e. brand, age, where purchased, original purchase price, etc. This information is used along with our sales history to reach an agreed upon selling price. As you know, it is market demand for an item that sets the price. If an item doesn’t sell within 30 days, it will be reduced by 15%. After 60 days, the items will be reduced by another 15%. We practice ‘full disclosure’ by showing our customers the markdowns in the future. This brings our customers back more often and we get greater foot traffic and subsequently a better value for you and your items. Your items are carefully placed in appealing setting to maximize its value. Factors such as current demand, design trends, uniqueness, current inventory, and condition of items are all taken into consideration when approving items for consignment.
How long is the consignment period?
The consignment period is 90 days. Any items that do not sell are the responsibility of the customer to pick-up within seven (7) days of the 90-day expiration. Items left longer than ninety (90) days can either be picked up or donated to a local charitable organization (Habitat for Humanity, Goodwill, Beds for Kids, etc.).
When do I get paid and how much?
You receive 50% of the agreed-upon selling price. Your proceeds are available to you on the 10th of each month for the previous month’s sales. (Check amounts over $25.00 will be ready for pick-up by the 10th of the month. Any amount below $25.00 will accrue into the next check, or you can use as a store credit.)
