Do you enjoy the fast-paced nature of the resale business? High-end goods have a long lifespan when it comes to financial value, with many products even gaining in price as the items become rarer and more difficult to find. Launching your consignment store is a realistic goal that can be accomplished with the right roadmap in place.
You may be surprised to learn how easy it is to start a consignment store. With a smart sense of business and a willingness to be creative, many people can start a consignment shop with minimal investment on their part. The average consignment store costs business owners $2,000-$10,000 to start.

Starting a resale consignment business is as easy as 1,2,3.
- Curate your inventory – selling items that others want to buy is key to a successful resale business. What you sell can drive your branding and theme – even your company name can be created around your passion for resale and consignment.
- Select a software partner – whom you partner with makes a big difference in the success of your business. Some companies only provide the software with little or no live support for you as a business owner or with ideas you may want to brainstorm. Software as a service means you should be getting service and support. Aravenda Consignment Software leads the market with in-house services to help you design and maintain your website as well as manage consignor payouts all for one low monthly or annual fee for less than $10 a day.
- Market your business – use social media, create engaging content, optimize your website, and pay for ads. A good way to bring traffic to your website is to have a blog with good articles.
