How the STAR System works

The simulation below is a list of events that can occur from the perspective of an owner using the owner's online account, the STAR System and all of the extra features. The list starts when a seller registers and continues through the end of the sale. This list is not all inclusive, but includes many of the features and events that truly occur.

  • Seller registers from your webpage and accepts your online contract. The registration fee can be collected, as well
  • Both you and the seller receive an instant email confirmation regarding the registration.
  • The seller's confirmation email can also include an attached Word document created by you to provide extra information about your sale
  • In the management screen of the owner's online account, you can see all of the information you need to know about your seller, such as name, seller #, the date registered, how many tags they have created, just to name a few
  • Your seller registers for a volunteer and check-in shift and you can now see them in your volunteer and check schedules. Both of these databases have multiple reports that you can generate
  • As time goes on, you are working on other aspects of your event, periodically watching your number of sellers and # of items grow. As time gets closer to the sale, your number of items is significantly growing. The sellers are tagging like crazy - even at 1:00AM!
  • Reviewing your reports: referral counts, item counts, inventory count report, new moms report, new sellers report, just to name a few
  • Now, you are just three weeks away from the sale and you email just the sellers that have not signed up for a check-in shift. No copy and pasting, just a quick click of a column header and selection of the sellers you want to email….type your message and send. Efficient and Fast!
  • You set an appointment with MyCM and train on the system with MyCM being on-call for any questions as you learn the system. After you train on the system you are ready for your real sale. You also feel at ease using the software because you know that MyCM is on-call for you during your sale week and weekend with extended business hours (in case something unforeseen were to happen or you simply have a question and you forgot the answer)
  • You quickly email just your volunteers to remind them about their shifts in the upcoming weeks
  • You print address labels for your sellers to put on envelopes so you can hand out their profits at pickup
  • A few days before your sale, you generate your inventory count reports so that you can plan your sales floor. You figure out you need two more clothes racks, so you have a few days to acquire those. You also lay out your marketing strategy for your sales floor. This will make it easier for sellers when they check-in and put out their items on the floor
  • Print out your check-in and volunteer reports so that you can use them as they sign in
  • Print out your new moms reports to have when they check in for their special event
  • Check-In begins! You had the choice of either scanning in all of the items for a guaranteed inventory or just collecting the inventory reports from your sellers. You opted for the easiest way, which is to collect the inventory reports
  • The night before the sale, you download the seller information and inventory onto the POS computers. You are ready to go!
  • At the sale, your computer is located in a back room, separate from the check-out stations where buyers are actually purchasing their items. Your cashiers are using cash registers or adding machines and totally the buyers purchases manually and placing the tags into boxes under the table. Volunteers are then running the boxes to the back room each hour to the volunteers that are scanning in the tags into your computer and STAR System
  • Owners can view their sale summary totals at the end of each day. All reports are printed and can be exported to either Excel or PDF
  • You generate a backup and your report files and upload the information to retrieve your daily reports and post your seller's earnings online for them to view
  • You continue this process each night through the final night. Then you just add a few more steps. You provide your volunteers with their extra % earnings to the STAR and reduce a few high level volunteers' registration fees to $0.00. Now you generate the final reports for you and your sellers to view online
  • You can load the import files into Microsoft Money or Quickbooks and either system can print your checks for you
  • You are finished! And send out a quick email thanking all of your sellers and volunteers for a great sale! You also remind them that they can transfer their items to the next sale and start tagging as early as they want!
  • You print out your referral reports so you can learn how your sellers heard about you. This will help you with your advertising for the next sale
