The fee to be applied to a consignor’s account that has Consignor Access enabled. This will get charged on the last day of every month a consignor has had an actively consigned item. This fee will be charged until all sold items are more than 30 days old.
Consignor Account Level of Detail
This setting controls what your consignors can see when accessing their account online.
Balance only - The consignor will only be able to see their account and store credit balances and not see their account activity or inventory items. When using SimpleConsign's Consignor Central, your consignors will be able to see their contract.
Basic - Along with what the consignors can see using the 'Balance only' option, they will also be able to see a basic form of their account activity and inventory items.
Detailed - This setting is similar to the 'Basic' option but consignors will be able to see more information regarding their account activity and inventory items.
For more information regarding the different SimpleConsign plans we offer, please see our SimpleConsign Pricing page on our website.

Dealer can add inventory (Professional plan only)
This enables the store to allow dealers to enter their own inventory. (NOTE: This only enables this functionality in the software. It will still need to be enabled on individual dealers for this to do anything, see the Adding and Editing Consignorspage to find out where to enable this.)
Dealer can withdraw inventory (Professional plan only)
This enables the store to allow dealers to withdraw inventory they (the dealer) has entered. Withdrawing inventory is similar to deleting an item but there will still be a record of the inventory. That inventory will have a status of "WITHDRAWN" (NOTE: This only enables this functionality in the software. It will still need to be enabled on individual dealers for this to do anything, see the Adding and Editing Consignors page to find out where to enable this.)

This is where you can manage the messages you want consignors to see when they access their account online.

Use this feature to manage your consignor contracts.
This will send out email invitations to all your consignors that have Consignor Access enabled on their account. This will also reset all existing passwords that have been sent out previously and resend those consignors new passwords.
