Looking for Used Consignment Hardware?

Used Consignment HardwareAre you looking for a reliable place to purchase used consignment hardware? Well, you’ve come to the right place! The Computer Peeps offer a professionally refurbished Zebra LP2844 tag printer at a very affordable price! In fact, our refurbished Zebra LP2844 is one of our biggest sellers!

It’s important to make sure when you are buying used consignment hardware that you are getting a refurbished product. I’m sure you are wondering what exactly refurbished means? Here’s what happens when you purchase a Refurbished Zebra LP2844 for The Peeps:


  • Our Refurbished Zebra LP2844 tag printers are hand-tested by The Computer Peeps before it is shipped to you!
  • Our Refurbished Zebra LP2844 tag printers come with a brand new power supply.
  • Our Refurbished Zebra LP2844 tag printers come with a brand new print head.


The key things to know about any tag printer is that they use heat to print on special thermal tags. This means the print head goes through a lot of wear and tear over years of use.  Another key component is the power supply, just like any piece of hardware it too has a limited life time. The Computer Peeps ensure that each Refurbished Zebra LP2844 purchased is ready for many years of use at your store!

Please keep in mind, when you purchase a used or refurbished tag printer it will typically need a special driver to be installed on your system.  The driver your consignment hardware vendor recommends will not always be the right driver. When you purchase a refurbished tag printer from The Computer Peeps we will install and configure the printer for you at no additional cost!

The Real Best Consignment Shop Software

Not really the best consignment software...
Not really the best consignment software...
Not really the best consignment software…

I’m sure you are wondering which program really is the best consignment software?  The Computer Peeps know how confusing it can be to make sure you purchase the right consignment software that matches your needs.

One thing to pay close attention to when purchasing consignment software, is that most of the major consignment vendors claim to be the best consignment shop software on the market. What you read isn’t always true, and what your friend says is the best consignment software, might not be the best consignment software for you.

It’s true, most of the consignment software programs offer similar features, but what you should keep in mind is how the consignment program feels when you are using it. You wouldn’t buy a car just because your friend said it drives nice!  More importantly, you wouldn’t buy a car just because it’s pretty! My point is before you buy software you need to demo, demo, and do more demoing!

Also, specific features.  Make sure you verify if the software handles any unique needs for your consignment store – e.g. flat rate buyer/item fees vs. percentage buyer fees, etc.

Make sure you really kick the tires @ adding items, ringing up sales, and paying out consignors.  You want to have practiced the actual processes you go through on a daily basis, within the software you’re about to invest in.  Don’t add items and practice paying out consignors on the day you actually need add inventory or pay consignors.  You get a free trial with each of these programs and you can take a consigned item all the way through the complete consignment life cycle, before you decide to purchase your consignment software.

So no, there is not “one” best consignment shop software. It truly all comes down to which program offers you the specific features you need, and which program feels the most usable!

The Computer Peeps would love to answer any additional questions you might have about the various consignment software programs on the market. We are experts in the industry and no one knows consignment software and consignment hardware the way we do!
