Sale Deduction Types

Working with Sale Deductions

Sale Deductions add or subtract from the amount owed to a consignor. They are applied only if an item sells. Sale Deductions appear in the consignor’s Transaction HIstory.

The amount of the Sale Deduction may be either a positive number or a negative number. When the Sale Deduction is a positive number, the amount of the deduction is subtracted from the consignor’s account, thus reducing the amount the consignor will be paid. When the Sale Deduction is a negative number, the amount of the deduction is added to the consignor’s account, thus increasing the amount the consignor will be paid.

An example of when a positive Sale Deduction is used would be when a store wishes to charge an additional fee when an item sells. If the item does not sell, then the consignor is not charged this fee.

An example of when a negative Sale Deduction is used would be when a store uses the Processing Fee to charge a mandatory minimum listing fee, and the store wishes to rebate the fee whenever items sell. In other words, if the item does not sell, no Sale Deduction is applied and the consignor pays the Processing Fee.

On the other hand if the item does sell, then the Processing Fee is canceled out by the Sale Deduction Fee. (In this case the term Sale Deduction is actually a inaccurate terminology, since it is actually a credit.)

Note: Each Price Code has its own Sale Deduction Fee (different Sale Deductions can be charged with different Price Codes).
