ONLINE SELLING GUIDELINES

 Guidelines detailed here will help you have a successful and profitable sale!

Inventory for ONLINE event

  • To begin working with inventory make sure you select the correct seller ID from the drop down box to ensure that you are correctly credited for your sales.This is a different inventory system than what we use for our in person events. 

  • The ONLINE event inventory system is very user friendly.  Continue to use line one for BRAND and line two for DESCRIPTION. Drop down menus are used for sizes and categories.  There are many more categories to select from for the ONLINE event.

  • DO NOT include any special characters in the description (ex: **NWT!!).  These items will not transfer into the online platform correctly and will be deleted.

  • You set your own prices, but the minimum is $4 per item.  Group outfits or same size items together to meet this minimum if necessary.

  • No item limit for ONLINE event.

  • Don't forget to check the Items & Brands Not Accepted.

  • Please use Recall Finder to check that your items have not been recalled. Recalled items cannot be part of the sale.​​​​

ADDITIONAL TIPS FOR ONLINE SELLING

TAGGING SUPPLIES

  • Cardstock for sold item labels.

  • Scissors

  • Waste can liners for bagging small lots.

  • Trash bags for larger items.

  • Tape to adhere labels to bags (no scotch tape)

 

TIPS FOR PHOTOS

  • One photo per item.  *PICTURES MATTER TO SELL WELL*.

  • Photos work best VERTICAL.

  • Take photos in good light.  Use a blanket or wood floor for background.

  • Using your phone or ipad for pictures.  Pictures must be in .jpeg format.  

  • Save photos as smallest size - not actual size.

  • The use of rulers in photos can help show size of items - especially with toys.

  • Uploading the same photo twice is the biggest mistake.  You will have a chance to double check your items prior to them being uploaded to the ONLINE platform.  Once items are uploaded no changes are able to be made.

AFTER THE SALE​​

  • Within 24 hours of the close of online sale Consignors will receive a report with sold items and buyer tags that will need to be printed and attached to sold items.

  • All sold items must be delivered in a bag/box so items sold stay clean and together during the sort process.  The exception is large items that wouldn't fit in a bag or box.  

  • DO NOT bag multiple sold items together for the same buyer.  Each item must be tagged individually.

  • NO HANGERS needed! 

  • Consignors will select a drop off appointment.

  • Sort bags into ALPHA order prior drop off appointment.

  • Consignors will be responsible for helping sort their sold items into Buyer piles.

CATEGORIES FOR ONLINE

  • NEW for ONLINE we will be accepting Women's Athletic Wear and Outerwear.  Athletic Wear is defined at clothing designed to be worn for sports, exercise and outdoor activity.  NO SPORTS BRAS.

  • Brands accepted for Women's Athletic Wear: Athleta, CALIA, Columbia, Lululemon, North Face, Patagonia and any other brands currently accepted for our children's clothing.

  • We are NOT accepting Home Decor for our ONLINE event.

  • No VHS will be accepted.

  • No stuffed animals will be accepted.

  • If selling Crafts and Craft Kits, they must be NEW IN BOX.

QUALITY ASSURANCE

  • It is critical that Consignors are committed to the quality inspection process for their items.  This includes checking for stains, tears, excessive fading, brands not accepted.  Consignors are responsible for selecting the correct categories and accurately managing sold items.  

  • A Quality Assurance charge of 25% of the cost of the item returned will be    retained by GCOS. (For example if item returned was sold for $8 GCOS will retain $2 from seller for handling the return).  This will be applied to duplicate items sold, any item not brought to drop off that was sold online and items rejected by the buyer due to quality issues.

  • If a consignor discovers a flaw PRIOR to presenting the item to the buyer they may mark their tag in red for “Buyer Review”.  If the item is returned there is no charge to the consignor.
