Adding and Editing Consignors

Adding a Consignor

It's a good practice to check if a new consignor was originally entered as a customer before creating a new account. If so, you can select the "Make Consignor" button on the customer profile to quickly create a consignor account.

Before adding a new consignor, be sure to search the list of existing consignors so a duplicate account doesn't get created. Then, from the Consignment Tab select the "Create New Consignor" button.

Editing a Consignor

If the consignor already exists and you would like to edit their information you can select the consignor from the list and select the "Edit Consignor Account" option.
