VIRTUAL SALE DETAILS

How do I enter items? / Where is the Portal? https://www.kidsensesale.com/consignor-portal


Enter your items as you normally would for an in person sale, then check the "ready to be sold online" box and add one photo. If the box is checked and you have added a photo your item will automatically go to the sale site during the next load.


SPECIAL NOTE FOR SHOES.  Sellers must enter the EXACT size in the photo or item description in addition to selecting the appropriate show size selector.

Do I need to print tags? You do not have to print tags, however IF you may bring those events to a future in person event if the item doesn't sell we encourage you to tag with card stock now - it will save work later. You will need to know each items number, so if not tagging make sure you know the number.  Tags CAN be printed after shut down.

How do I pack items? Each item will need to have a tag (either our sale tag or a neatly written handmade tag) with your consignor number and the item number (it is VERY important that your consignor number is the FIRST number listed). If you are selling a bundle or something with parts make sure everything is in one bag with this information on the outside of the bag. (Grocery bags work great for this!!!)

IMPORTANT PHOTO TIPS. It doesn't matter if the photo is horizontal or vertical, but it must be oriented correctly with the top of the photo at the top when you load it. You do not need to add any words/sizes or information to your photo unless you choose to do so.

What about DISCOUNT? If you mark discount your item will be marked half off during the discount period. You earnings will be off of the selling price.



OF SPECIAL NOTE
Per our seller agreement consignors are responsible for checking any items they plan to sell for active recalls. You can easily check your items with the CPSP or at We Make It Safer.

ITEMS TO AVOID


  • Stuffed Animals 
  • Food, Formula & Medication (Even if new and unopened!)

To restate the obvious - we NEVER accept stained, ripped, damaged, dirty, incomplete, odoriferous, fur covered/hairy, overly worn or recalled items!


 

CLOTHING


You may bundle items IF they are all the same size.  (For example two tops and two bottoms that are all the same size that mix and match well can be bundled as ONE item with ONE price and ONE tag.)

NOTES ON SEASONABILITY



We DO NOT have hard and fast rules on clothing beyond what we have listed above, meaning that items like vests, short/long sleeves and leggings (when combined with common sense) are welcome year round. We ask that for our spring events clothing be of spring prints/colors and lighter in weight. Likewise in the fall clothing should be fall prints/colors and heavier weight. There is always some cross over of seasons in PA so please use our guidelines and your best judgment when entering items for sale.


QUALITY IS OUR PRIORITY!  All items will be inspected for quality and seasonability.  Items not meeting our standards will NOT be returned AND loose ANY earnings on the item.



COMMUNICATION


We have a consignor support group on Facebook titled "KidSense Consignor Corner".  While we frequently post contests and interact in this group - any important information affecting all consignors will be posted to our website as well as communicated via email.  If you are a CURRENTLY REGISTERED consignor you can request membership to this exclusive closed group.  


Emails with specific details regarding DROP OFF, PICK UP, VOLUNTEER SHIFTS and PORTAL SHUT DOWN are sent to consignors automatically at pre determined intervals.   Please read these emails carefully - even if you have consigned with us before - as they often contain new and important information that you need to know!
