Key Fields Explained:

  • Username and Password give your consignors access to your vendor login, where they can track their inventory, payouts, and more on their own.

  • Consignor Credit and Rewards allow you to manually add or subtract consignor credit or rewards for various reasons. Click HERE to learn more.

  • Bulk Credit Adjustment toggled ON is mostly used by Vendor-based stores to determine if a bulk credit adjustment option applies or not.

  • Consignor Credit Only toggled ON means a consignor sales credits go towards in-store credit instead of receiving a traditional payout. If left OFF, their split funds will be added to your payouts as normal.

  • Is Customer toggled ON will automatically create a customer when the profile information is saved. NOTE: The same rule applies if you want to create a consignor from a customer profile, you can do so by navigating to Accounts > Customers > find their customer account, and toggle Is Consignor ON.

  • Is Vendor toggled ON will allow your consignors to log in from anywhere and add in their own inventory. They only have access to their own account, can add prices to their own items and can print labels. They do not have the ability to change splits or conduct payouts. When exporting a list of consignors, there will be a field within the CSV for marketing purposes.

  • Email Marketing toggled ON allows external email clients such as Mailchimp or Campaign Monitor to accurately add your customers to a mailing list while avoiding those who wish to opt-out of email marketing. It is best to verbally ask new consignors if they would like to receive emails when creating their account.
