How do you get payments?
Payments are available after one month and at the expiration of your consignment.
- One month payment must have earnings over $10.00.
- At the expire date all earnings are payable, regardless of the cash balance.
- Many clients choose to get earnings at the expire date.
- Others use their earnings for credit applied toward store purchases. There is no minimum balance restrictions or pay out dates to use earnings for store credits.
Note: You are not required to be in on your pay dates to get your payments. The money is held in your account until you contact CU for payment. You will not lose your money if you forget or are late to pick up payments…..
You can choose to:
- Pick up your payment
- Call and request your payment be mailed to your current address.
- Payments and credit purchases are conducted ONLY at the service counter.
What happens to your unsold consigned items at the expire date?
Please choose one option:
- You do not want back. Your expired items may be donated, sold or disposed of.
- You will pull and remove your unsold expired items from the store by the expire date. Please allow enough time to find your items. You are not obligated to remove all of our items. Items left after expired date are no longer in the computer system as active. There is no money applied to an expired account, should an item sell that is not picked up after it has expired.
- You agree to not hold CU liable for expired items that you can not locate during the pulling. The staff will offer assistance to you in searching for an item that you can’t find. Some items are hard to find. Items that are “hiding” usually come out during purging and straightening times, “appearing” at the most unusual places.
Please understand you will not be paid for any items that you do not find.

Consignments Unlimited eBay Guidelines:
Items that we list on eBay are items that we believe will earn a higher profit on a nationwide selling platform, rather than our local region.
Fees: eBay does have a fee that is applied to anything that we sell using their website. We do, however, received reduced fees because of our long-term listing status. We pay eBay fees for the sold item before we calculate consignor shares. We will only list an item on eBay if we believe that you will receive more money than you would if the item were being sold in the store.
Payouts: We process consignors’ eBay payouts at the end of every month. Any money received from sold items will be applied to your consignor account at this time.
eBay Consignment Length: Because listing on eBay is such a time consuming process (listing, photographing, measuring, cleaning, customer service, packing, shipping), we will give you 1 year to sell any items that we list on eBay. This will give us more time to see that our efforts pay off and that you receive the best profit.
Location: Our eBay warehouse is located in Millersburg, PA. Any items that we list are sent to our warehouse to be processed and stored until they sell.
Picking Up: If an eBay item doesn’t sell and you would like it back, please let us know at the end of your consignment. It may take up to one week for us to bring the item back to the store from our Millersburg warehouse. If will remain at our warehouse until you contact us. Once the item is transferred to Consignments Unlimited, we will call you to pick it up.
