Consigning is fun, you can earn up to 75% commission, and consignors get to shop early. You set your own prices, and Pineapple’s online system makes tagging and managing your inventory super easy.  At the end of each sale day, you can check earnings, and we’ll pay you via PayPal within 10 days.

some consigning basics

Our inventory comes from people like you. Got some nice furniture and home decor to sell but don’t want to fool with Craigslist crazies? Perfect. Register to consign with us.

1. Register to consign

Registration is now open! Click the link below, pay the registration fee and you’re all set!

 

2. Price & Enter your items

After you’ve registered, price and enter your inventory in our easy to use software. This helps keep everything organized and makes sure you get paid the right amount. 

3. Tag & Drop Off your Items

Our software generates tags for you, so it is super easy to print and tag your inventory. You can sign up for a designated drop off time. Then we’ll handle the rest!

4. Shop the Presale & Get Paid

As a consignor, you will have access to the Pre-Sale. There you can shop before we open to the public. Then, you can expect to be paid your commission within 10 days via paypal. 

Rules for Consignors

  • The consignor registration fee is $15. This reserves your spot and helps us cover the cost of the consignment software.
  • We’re limiting the total number of consignors to 50
  • The minimum number of items per consignor is 5.
  • The maximum number of items per consignor is 100.
  • Pineapple Consignment isn’t liable for any lost, stolen, or damaged items. When you sign the contract to register for the event, you agree to this. 
  • We believe in quality over quantity so we reserve the right to be very picky about what we do and do not accept.
  • Everything must be clean—i.e., dust, dirt, hair, and smell free.
  • When in doubt, email us pictures of large items. That way, we can tell you yes or no before you haul it all the way to the event space.
  • You can pick up your unsold items after the sale, or you can choose to donate them. The designated pickup time for ALL consignors is 1:30-3:00pm on Saturday, April 13th. If you (or the person you send) cannot pick up the items during the designated time, then we will donate your unsold items. 

Instructions for Consignors

PRICING ITEMS

We recommend that you price your items at 50-70% off retail value. Shoppers are looking for good deal. Items priced to sell will… sell.

Please email pictures of large items for pre-approval.

If you don’t want your items to be discounted or donated, that’s fine. When you enter that item, make sure that you don’t tick those boxes. Note: You CANNOT change your mind after your tags are printed. You MUST pick up your items during the designated pickup time, or they will be donated.

  • The minimum number of items per consignor is 5.
  • The maximum number of items per consignor is 100.
  • The minimum price for any item is $1.
  • All prices must be whole dollar amounts—for example, $5, $17, $32. Don’t include cents.

The deadline for entering items into the software is April 7th, 2019. At midnight.

Don’t forget to email pictures of large items to megan@pineappleconsignment.com for pre-approval.

PRINTING ITEMS

  • Print tags using white or light-colored card stock. Do NOT use regular 20-30lb paper. 60lb to 67lb paper works best. Heavier pound card stock can jam a home printer.
  • Use an ink jet printer on normal or draft print setting. Don’t select the “best” print setting. For whatever reasons, darker bar codes printed with more ink don’t scan easily.
  • Tags print 8 per page, so you can conserve paper by printing tags in increments of 8.
  • Print small batches to make sure your bar codes look (and stay) crisp, BEFORE you try to print all the tags at once. If don’t have a lot of confidence in your printer, find a Kinko’s. You can email them the PDF or take a USB drive with the file to the shop. Kinko’s is cheap, so you may save money by not buying card stock and printing at home.

VOLUNTEERING

  • Don’t forget to sign up to Volunteer! Here is how the commission break down goes:
    • Work 4 shifts. You keep 75% and shop the Pre-Sale starting at 2pm.
    • Work 3 shifts. You keep 70% and shop the Pre-Sale starting at 2:30pm.
    • Work 2 shifts. You keep 70% and shop the Pre-Sale at 3:00pm.
    • Work 1 shift. You keep 70% and shop the Pre-Sale at 3:30pm.
    • Work 0 shifts. You keep 60% and shop the Pre-Sale at 4:00pm.

    Fair Warning… If you sign up for a volunteer shift and fail to show, your commission goes down to 50%. So let’s just avoid the awkwardness, okay?

    Each volunteer shift lasts approximately three hours. We will provide light snacks, but if your shift overlaps with a meal time, please plan on eating before you come. 
    We have volunteer shifts for all ability levels, and someone else can volunteer for you! 
    If you are a VOLUNTEER ONLY (not consigning), then you can come by Relix at any time during Drop Off hours to pick up your presale passes.

ENTERING ITEMS

  1. Click on CONSIGNOR LOGIN BUTTON at the top of this page. Login to your seller account with your User ID and Password.
  2. Click on ENTER ITEMS.
  3. Select PRICE, SIZE, and CATEGORY from the drop-down menu. Note: The system “remembers” your SIZE and CATEGORY selections until you change them. As you work through your stuff, item by item, don’t forget to change the size and category.
  4. Check the DISCOUNT BOX for items to sell half price on Saturday. The box will remain checked until you uncheck it.
  5. Check the DONATE BOX for unsold items to be donated. The box will remain checked until you uncheck it. (NOTE: Items checked for DONATE will automatically be marked to allow DISCOUNT.)
  6. Enter the brand name in the first DESCRIPTION box and write a brief yet detailed description in the second box. The better the description and story, the more likely the item is to sell. Good descriptions also help us match up loose tags to items.
  7. Click the “Add Item(s)” Button. DON’T FORGET THIS STEP.

Tip: Please enter items individually, even if they go as a set. IF you are selling something together, make sure it says so in the description field. (ex: 2 Linen Napkins). Otherwise it will be easier for someone to steal one or more of the items.

*You must also have a unique tag for each unique item. No photocopying tags. This will mean LESS money for you. You can choose the “Create (more than 1) tag with this information” option on the Enter Items screen.
