About SimpleConsign

SimpleConsign is a cloud-based management system for consignment stores, which includes a point of sale (POS) system, consignor access portal, and inventory management, credit card processing, customer history tracking, eCommerce integration, and consignor management capabilities.

SimpleConsign’s POS can process sales, purchases, and consignments in a single transaction, as well as supporting voids, returns, partial payments, and credit card processing for online purchases, and the ability to apply discounts to single items or whole transactions. Items can be searched for by name, ISBN, SKU, or entered manually at time of sale, and transactions can be saved and resumed later on. The system also allows users to put items on layaway, with the option to set minimum down payments and layaway expiry dates, which are tracked by SimpleConsign.

SimpleConsign allows users to manage consignors in a single screen, with inventories, account activity, payout histories, and account balances all presented in one view. Consignors can be paid individually or in batches, with QuickBooks integration allowing for check payments to consignors. Donated items can also be marked directly from the consignor view. Items can be added to consignor inventories individually or in batches, with drop-down menus for entering brands, colors, and sizes. Consignor inventories and store inventories can be tracked separately, and searched using keywords including item names, brands, categories, and colors.

SimpleConsign offers a consignor portal, through which consignors can access their accounts in real time, and view their recent items, expiring items, donations, and returned items. Users can create and store multiple contracts and assign different contracts to consignors, who can view and print these through the portal. Users can customize the consignor portal with their own logo and URL, and can also charge a monthly fee to consignors for portal access.

We've been very pleased with everything about this software. Most importantly (in my book) their customer service is VERY responsive and extremely helpful. Considering how much our operations rely upon their interface, any downtime would be catastrophic. The handful of times that we have had issues, they really have dropped everything to work with us to get it resolved in short order. That means pretty much everything for our store.

Pros

The software is very intuitive. We switched our software over from a piece-built Access system back in 2013, and there was a learning curve for staff, but it went very smoothly. For a high-volume consignment based store with over 7,000 consignors, I can't imagine using anything else. Additionally, being cloud-based means that when we have technological complications on one computer, we still have functionality.

Cons

There have been a few tweaks and customization changes that we have requested from the company that either haven't happened or have taken a long time to implement. Please understand, this is a minor issue, and they have become a very large company so we don't expect special treatment. The fact that this is the thing I like "least" is more testament to how great the bulk of our experience has been.

Response from Traxia

Thanks so much Eric. What a terrific review! We really appreciate you taking the time. We tweak and make changes to the system based on the number of requests we receive for a particular feature. We truly want SimpleConsign to be a customer-driven system. Believe me, we're listening to all of your suggestions. Thanks again.

I am finding that inventory management has become much simpler by integrating Simpleconsign into my business. Everyday activities like tagging, uploading photos to my website, processing Items… Have become become much more streamlined and take less time - which saves me $ and stress. I have over 600 consignors, and now I am able, at a click, to access their account, answer their questions, and truly understand their activity. I feel I have much more visibility to my business, and it’s health, as a result of partnering with SimpleConsign.

Pros

I think the main feature, says it in the name. SimpleConsign… It is simple to use and intuitive. Clearly much thought was put into what features are needed most to run a consignment retail environment. It integrates beautifully with our Shopify website, and is well supported... with technicians responding almost immediately which is what is needed in a retail business space. I would highly recommend.

Cons

Given it requires remote integration (owner driving roll out from afar). I would’ve hoped for an ‘integration coordinator’ for my account. Having one individual from SimpleConsign triage issues, train, ensure account specific issues were addressed, and ensure all the ‘boxes were checked’ would have prevented extra work at my end.
As well, SimpleConsign does not offer a platform that is formatted for phones. I do a lot of work remotely on my Apple phone, and find the platform hard to navigate from my phone.

Response from Traxia

Pros

My store does consign and new product and simple consign handles it all! I used a different product for a number of years and keeping track of my new items was a nightmare. I love how easy Simple Consign is to keep track of all of our new inventory and to make changes. The History portion is very helpful. Simple Consign has easy integration with my online store. The fact that Simple Consign gives you a daily record of your COGS without having to pull multiple reports is one of its best features. It is so easy that I was able to get rid of my bookkeeper who waded through multiple reports on my previous software. The consignment process is easy and straightforward to use. We have always had quick and friendly technical support, even with our stupid questions. Highly recommend this software particularly if you choose to carry some new product.

Cons

I would love it the POS system integrated with your choice of a credit card company. Reports can be a challenging to figure out at first.

Response from Traxia

Thanks Michelle! We are continually looking at new processors to fit our customers needs. Thank you so much for being a great partner, and we look forward to many more years of success!

Simple Consign has all the core elements we need to power our new business.

Reviewed on 2017/12/11

Pros

We are a combination of consignment, resale and retail. I love that SimpleConsign supports all of these types in both POS and overall inventory management. It is also fairly easy to train our new staff on POS components of the system. Also I'm very happy with the level of customer support from the Traxia team.

Cons

Because I have a software design and development background, I am perhaps more critical than most. I find many of the workflows very clunky and some of the interfaces do not follow UX best practices -- resulting in user errors that shouldn't happen. It doesn't feel like user-centered design.

Many times when I'm trying to figure out how to get the system to support the tasks I want to do, I long for a peek at your schema and object model. The data relationships aren't always clear and results are often not what I would expect.

I would love for the software to work better with and on multiple devices.

Overall I really like Simple Consign. I used to hand write tags and keep a spreadsheet. I love that I can do all the things I need to in one program.

Pros

The ease of use and the ability to track everything.

Cons

When something sells online it doesn't always take them out of inventory and we get double orders. Also it seems as though when there is an update we have a lot of errors.

Response from Traxia

Thank you for the review Dana, with Shopify sometimes they update something on their end that messes with what we have on our end.

That being said, your issue should never happen.

I am having support reach out to you to make sure that your shopify plugin is working correctly and items are being marked as sold after selling.
