Pricing:

To Increase your profits:

*Only bring items in GREAT condition, less than five years old, and in clean, working condition.

*Price between 25% and 30% of what you paid for the item new, taking into consideration age, condition, style, and brand.

*Price on the LOWER end for maternity, newborn and junior clothing, value brands (Like Carters, Garanimals, Old Navy), bedding and stuffed toys.

*Price on the HIGHER end for large play items and baby gear (in nearly new condition), large toys, name brand and boutique brands (Gymboree, Janie & Jack, Justice, Ralph Lauren, etc)

*ALWAYS price most or all of your items for HALF PRICE day. We have lots of shippers that buy in bulk on this day. You can maximize your total revenues if you tag your items for 1/2 off day and end of picking up fewer items of your unsold items.  Those who price items at half price receive, on average, a check 50% greater than sellers that price only for full price.

 

How to Get Started and Quick Tips:

• Separate the items you are consigning into categories; clothing (separate by gender and then by size), toys, books, accessories, etc. before you start tagging.

•Group items together (if possible), like pairing pants with a shirt (as long as it is the same size), several books together, place small accessories together, etc.

• Enter multiple quantities for "like" items. For instance, tag all T-shirts together (that are the same size and price) and enter the total number of T shirts you have in the "Qty" field.

 

• Concentrate on toys and larger play items! We sell 90% of these items: strollers, high chairs, bouncers, swings, bassinets, exer-saucers, outdoor play equipment, basketball goals, kitchens, tool benches, train tables, ride on toys, bikes, wagons, rockers, pack n plays, and toys, toys and toys!
