Buying or selling secondhand goods in Louisiana? Your cash is no good…

It looks like there’s a new law in Louisiana that prevents those selling or buying second-hand goods, from accepting/using cash as a form of payment.

According to the new law, “Anyone, other than a non-profit entity, who buys, sells, trades in or otherwise acquires or disposes of junk or used or secondhand property more frequently than once per month from any other person, other than a non-profit entity, shall be deemed as being in the business of a secondhand dealer.

Details on this new law can be found at:


How does this affect consignment and resale stores in the state of Louisiana?  Can you no longer accept cash as a form of payment?  Do you have to collect your consignors’ driver’s license number and license plate number?

I am a consignment software specialist, System Administrator for hundreds of consignment workstations across North America, and developer of Peeps' Software! I've been helping consignment & resale store-owners since 2003. I started The Computer Peeps in February of 2010. After 18+ years of working with consignment stores, I understand the unique challenges consignment & resale store-owners face. From electrical issues in old building or strip malls, to advocating for them when their consignment software keeps crashing. I now manage hundreds of computer systems, servers & websites for store-owners all across North America and I am the developer/programmer of Peeps' Software -- the only software written FOR consignment & resale stores specifically.
