You can use Auctria to track expenses for consignment items for which you pay a percentage of the winning bid or the item's value.
Before defining consignment categories, create an Expense Category for consignment items to register their cost against.
To use the consignment function, you must define a consignment category which sets the rules for your cost of the consignment item.
On the Item Dashboard, click Consignment Categories.
The Consignment Categories window appears.
Click Add Consignment Category.
Enter a name for the category. Name is the only required field.
Select the consignment expense category if you created one.
Enter percentages according to the cost structure.
Percentage is the amount of the winning bid that you will pay as an expense. If minimum and maximum percentages are defined, the Percentage is only used if the expense amount falls between the minimum and maximum of the value.
Minimum Percentage is the minimum percentage of the item value that you will pay as an expense. This is the least you will have to pay, regardless of how low the winning bid is.
Maximum Percentage is the maximum percentage of the item value that you will pay as an expense. This is the maximum that you will have to pay, regardless of how high the winning bid is.
Click Save Consignment Category.
