Pricing Cart Improvements & Simple Point-of-Sale (POS)

Our Pricing Cart feature for free and premium subscribers is one of the most popular features on our site. It allows collectors and retailers to value multiple game lots at the same time.

We made some additions to the Pricing Cart that make it even more powerful and make it into a simple point-of-sale (POS) system for small retailers.




Scan and Search by UPC

Now the Pricing Cart lets you search by UPC code. Anyone with a barcode scanner can quickly add items to their cart.

This makes it much easier for retailers to scan games a customer brings into a store. In 2-3 seconds you can scan a whole pile of games and have a total price for the entire package.

Price Many Games in a Few Seconds


Calculate Sales Tax

To help retailers calculate sales tax during a transaction we implemented an optional sales tax setting. Set the "Sales Tax Rate" to anything but zero and the cart will show the sales tax and a grand total with the items and sales tax.

Customize Your Own Markup to Use in Pricing Cart

Some of our current customers asked for this feature. You can customize the markup you want to use for your store in a percentage markup and/or a flat dollar amount. The cart will remember your settings for future use as well.

An quick example: Our prices are for the item without a cost of shipping, you can add $3.99 to all your prices if you want your prices to match what a customer would pay if they had to pay shipping online.

Improved Print Formattting

We improved the formatting when you print the Pricing Cart screen. The page no longer includes logos, menus, and other extras when printed. It just includes a list of the items in the cart and the total value.

Retailers can print this page for a simple receipt for customers and consumers can print a list of games for their records too.
