Now, managing online consignments and commissioned sales are easy with CoreCommerce’s online consignment functionality:
- Set up individual consignors and tag each consignor with a set commission.

When surplus inventory items, returns, or out of season merchandise are sitting in your warehouse, they are costing your business to store and maintain. Now, you can assign products as liquidation items in the product information area of the admin dashboard. To enable liquidation, you must have sitewide discounts enabled on your site. These can be enabled by visiting, Inventory > Pricing Discounts > On. When liquidation is turned on, liquidation items are excluded from sitewide discounts. When inventory levels for these items reach 0, the item automatically becomes unavailable and is removed from your online store. If you have questions about this functionality, please contact customer support.
