Below are some FAQs. Happy entering!~ 

— 

FAQs

I am not going to have time to get items into the sale, can I get a refund or transfer my registration to another sale? 

We do not offer refunds or transfers of registration fees. We recommend you try to enter at least 2-3 of your highest valued items. This can help you recover the cost of your registration fee. 

I will now (unexpectedly) be out of town during seller check-in, can my friend bring my items for me? 

ABSOLUTELY! Just make sure all items are prepared appropriately and your friend understands the process for check-in. Your friend is always welcome to reach out to us and we can help explain the process as well.  

What does the shopping cart symbol mean next to my items? 

The shopping cart symbol means that the data has been transferred out and uploaded to the virtual storefront. Once you see a shopping cart to the left of your item in the ‘Manage Items’ screen you will no longer be able to make changes/edits to this item. Review all your items before each upload to make sure you have everything marked at your preferred discount, prices are appropriate, items are still in your possession, photos are quality, descriptions/ sizes are accurate, items are clean, etc.  

If I can’t make it to pick-up my purchase, can I send someone to get it for me? 

Yes! Just email them one of your order confirmation emails to have at pick-up.

6/8/2024: Updates for Second Upload

Subject: Next Data Upload, Reduced Fees, Books & More Update!

Happy Saturday! You will now see a shopping cart next to the items that were uploaded on Monday, and you will not be able to delete/edit items you already entered. BUT you can keep entering! There are TWO more uploads to go! Potentially THREE! The next data upload is June 10th.

Keep an eye out for emails. We will be sending information to sellers who may need some updates to their items in the coming days. 

If you didn’t get anything in, NO PROBLEM! There’s still plenty of time to continue entering items for the Virtual Sale! You’ll be able to make edits to newly entered items until the second data upload. Be sure to download and review the Seller Timeline PDF and the Seller Central on the June Virtual Seller Event page.  

Administrative Fees. We’ve reconsidered and reduced our admin fees AGAIN in favor of our sellers! Fees are not meant to be a punishment, but a deterrent to slow sellers down to inspect items and make sure they still have them prior to item entry and/or transfer. Check out the Virtual Seller Central under ‘Administrative Fees’ for updates. 

We have an exciting new offer for seller check-in this season! Watch email for the details.

Book prices have been reduced! You can now sell your books online for $1.50 and up! Add those books this weekend!

REMINDER: If you had items posted on another platform for sale, REMOVE THEM NOW so you don’t accrue fees. 

The next data upload is June 10th – everything that is in the ‘Manage Items’ screen on this date is set in stone. But you can continue to enter after this date until the final upload. Check the Virtual Seller Timeline for details.  

Please feel free to email at su*****@ki**********.com or text us at 502-209-9899. The team is available to answer questions or provide guidance as you need it. Please identify your name, seller number and which sale you are referencing so we can best assist you.

FAQs: 

If I need to make edits to the items I have already input, will I be able to change them after the first data upload? 

  1. Any items you have entered will need to be edited PRIOR TO data upload. Once you see a shopping cart to the left of your item in the ‘Manage Items’ screen you will no longer be able to make changes/edits to this item. Review all your items now to ensure you have everything marked at your preferred discount, prices are appropriate, items are still in your possession, photos are quality, descriptions/ sizes are accurate, items are clean, etc. 

If you have an issue once the item is uploaded, please reference the Virtual Seller FAQ page for guidance. 

What if I didn’t make items into the first data upload? 

No problem! You can continue to upload items until the final upload. We do the upload in batches because the data transfer takes a long time to complete. Doing this allows our sellers more time (days) to be able to enter items up until the storefront opens. 

For more FAQs, find them here on the Virtual Seller FAQs page.

DON’T FORGET: The next data upload is June 10th.

Have a wonderful weekend and reach out if you need anything!

6/1/2024: First Virtual Data Upload – June 3rd

Subject: First Virtual Data Upload – June 3rd

Clouds and rain make for a great weekend for data entry! Many of you all are SUPER Spring Cleaners!!!! Gold stars on the head starts! 

Monday, June 3rd is coming up quickly. This is the date of the first data upload. All items that have been entered into the system on this date will no longer be available for edit/delete after the June 3rd data upload. Make sure to double check those items now and make updates.  

TRANSFERS!! If you are a seller who has been with us for a long time, you have great accountability of your inventory, and you generally click transfer and move on…this is the time to take a step back and double check your inventory in ‘Manage Items’. We made quite a few changes between sales to the categories and sizes, which causes an error to your data. If there’s an error, it MAY NOT upload. The changes streamline data entry and provide a lot more clarity on the storefront to prevent clothing size returns. 

NEW SELLERS, Procrastinators, the I CAN’T DO IT THIS TIMERS, the I’m NOT MOTIVATEDers: 

  • You’re not alone…the clutter isn’t going away; you just have to do it!  
  • Enter five items today…that’s it! YOU GOT THIS! 
  • Find an accountability partner that will register to enter ONLY 3-5 items a day with you while talking on the phone. 
  • Ask questions, DON’T ignore the unknown/unfamiliar. Knowledge is POWER! 
  • You still have PLENTY of time to get lots entered, clear the clutter, and earn summertime money! 
  • Check out our Virtual Seller FAQs 

June 3rd is the first data upload – everything in the ‘Manage Items’ screen on this date is set in stone. Continue entering all of your inventory until the final data upload.

5/24/2024: How is Virtual Item Entry Going

Subject: How is Virtual Item Entry Going

The Virtual sale is getting closer! We are thrilled to provide Kentuckiana another Virtual Sale this year! If you’re just getting started on our Virtual Sales, don’t fret, it’s a breeze once you learn the basics! 

We are TWO WEEKS away from the FIRST data upload!!!!  

What this means for you

  • Check inventory for accuracy. Items captured at any data upload CANNOT BE EDITED OR DELETED.  
  • Check inventory for errors. If you transferred items, there may be a variety of category errors due to realignment/simplifying within the system.  
  • Add inventory. Of course, add as many items as you can find the time to add. A few items a day will keep the clutter away!~ 

Tips

  • Start entering TODAY. Start with 3-5 items and do that each day so you don’t get overwhelmed. 
  • Focus on inspecting items and taking quality photos. Don’t crop photos and only have the item being sold fill the image frame.  
  • All the instructions and information you need can be found on the Virtual Seller Central, located on the June Virtual Seller Event page
  • Join the Facebook Virtual Sale Seller Group and check out our Guides for some useful explanations and examples. 
  • Review and follow the Seller Timeline PDF, located on the Virtual Seller Central so you don’t miss item upload deadlines. 
  • Reach out to us early and often with your questions.  

June 3rd is the first data upload – everything in the ‘Manage Items’ screen on this date is posted for sale (cannot be changed). Continue entering all of your inventory until the final data upload. 

Catch up on all this event’s emails here: June Virtual Seller EMAILS 

NEW VIRTUAL SELLERS: We have a New Seller Assistance Request form you can utilize, if you choose, to ask questions and find out more information.

5/10/2024: Photo/Entry Guidance & Data Uploads – 6 weeks

Subject: Photo/Entry Guidance & Data Uploads – 6 weeks

Welcome back or Welcome to KidStuff Sale!   

Can you believe it…event is now less than 6 weeks away… Spring will be here before you know it.  

All the links you need are in your Registration Confirmation email.  

The guidance and information you need to prepare is located on the Virtual Seller Central page of our website – take time and read through that section. DON’T be overwhelmed if you are new – it is easy once you get started and we are here to help

Make sure to mark the data upload dates on your calendar! See FAQs below for information on data uploads. 

PLEASE READ, even if you are a seasoned seller! We want to bring quality consignment to our shoppers to keep them coming back to buy your goodies! 

Some tips and things to know: 

  1. Data Uploads. You cannot make the edits to items that are in the ‘Manage Items’ screen at each point of data upload (see Seller Timeline PDF for dates). We recommend you inventory the items AS YOU TRANSFER them. This ensures you still have the items, sizing is correct, and you can double check them for damage or stains.  
  2. Descriptions. Words and proper spelling matter. Please reference ‘Adding Items to the Sale’ on the Virtual Seller Central. You can also review the ‘Key Words’ document on the Virtual Seller Central page for an in-depth explanation and help with categories and verbiage. 
  3. Required Data in Description. Certain items require information to be entered for us to be able to publish it for sale to ensure we are following the Consumer Product Safety Commission guidelines. Please see the list on the Virtual Seller Central under ‘Adding Items to the Sale’. 
  4. Pricing. You can typically price items at 25-35% of the retail price, or less depending on the quality. If you transfer your item from a previous sale, consider adjusting the price. If it was too high for one sale, it will be too high for the next sale. 
  5. Marking Discount. We facilitate the opportunity to consign to offer a deal to our community and you want the items out of your home – let’s give discounts to get items sold!~ 
  6. Photos are an integral part of selling your items. If your photos are poor quality or too busy, items will not sell! Review ALL your photos to ensure you don’t have the issues outlined below. The biggest issues we see with photos are: 
  • Close-ups on the image are helpful. Fill the frame with the item you are selling.  
  • Objects in the background of the photo – ONLY the object being sold should be displayed. Have a clean background so your item pops in the photo. 
  • Dimension/size references – always type in dimensions and DO NOT put size-reference items in the photo…shoppers can’t read the ruler on tiny thumbnails.  
  • Lay Clothing Flat – rumpled and hung clothing does not always appear the best in photos. 
  • Lighting – use natural lighting, check photos for shadows, compare color in image. 
  • Sideways photos – check your photos in MyCM before data uploads. If it looks sideways, it will show up sideways on the storefront. You can take the photo with your phone camera and upload it to ensure proper alignment. 
  • Items blending in with backgrounds – use a contrasting color sheet, wood flooring or carpet in the background of the photo. 
  • Collages – Try not to use them unless necessary to display something specific about your item. If you do a collage of photos, do not use more than two photos and fit them to the image, straight up and down. If you have items that are high value that you need to add additional photos, please use this link
  • Hands or feet in photos – no humans or body parts should be in photos, especially children. Set your items on a flat surface to photograph; don’t hold the items you are photographing. Watch those mirror reflections! 
  • Dirty items – Anytime you are selling items or taking a photo, they must be clean.

5/6/2024: Timeline, Teen Clothing, & Transfers

Subject: Timeline, Teen Clothing, & Transfers

We hope everyone had a Happy Derby!~

We will start ramping up communication this week. Please check email regularly as it is our primary source of communication with sellers – the only way to stay on the same page with a group our size! 

Seller Timeline: 

First thing is first: Check the SELLER TIMELINE PDF NOW and mark your calendar with the following dates: 

  • First Data Upload (item entry deadline #1) 
  • Second Data Upload (item entry deadline #2) 
  • Final Restock Data Upload (item entry deadline #3) 
  • Seller Presale 
  • Sold Item Check-In  

We’re happy to bring you some feedback from previous sales that can help you obtain a higher sell-thru rate. Photos and descriptions matter!   

Start entering items now…even if it’s just 2-3 items a day. 

Teen Clothing:  

YES, we ARE accepting Teen Clothing in the June Virtual Sale! Due to many issues with sellers not properly sizing Teen clothing, we are breaking it down to how they are shopped in the retail stores – Youth sizing and Adult sizing. Therefore, Teen girl sizing will go in Women’s and Teen boy sizing will go in Men’s. Shoppers can still find Teen clothing on the storefront by brand, and we will still have the Teen drop-down filter. 

Transferring Items:  

We still have a lot of sellers who have been transferring items without double checking that they still have items. This makes for unhappy shoppers. PLEASE make sure to physically inventory items as you transfer them. For more information on transferring items, follow this link

June 3rd is the first data upload – everything in the ‘Manage Items’ screen on this date is set in stone. Continue entering all of your inventory until the final data upload.  

Select your Sold Item Check-In appointment now. You can always adjust it later based on your schedule.  

If you’d like to join our team, apply here and someone will contact you.
