Welcome to MOAB 2023 Bring and Buy, important information follows
An important Bring and Buy update
To improve the service, we provide to our Sellers and Buyers we have been trialling a few consignment software packages.
We are now using `ConsignCloud’ which is cloud-based retail and point of sale software.
The advantages include increased reliability, ease of use, cloud-base storage and increased access for our Sellers.
How it works, a Seller completes the Bring and Buy Sellers form and uploads it to us. We create an account for that user using name, address, email, and phone number. The financial details are not supplied to ConsignCloud.
We use ConsignCloud to manage sales and inventory, generate inventory lists and process sales.
Note: Placing items for sale in the Bring and Buy Stall is an acceptance of all terms and conditions.

The Sutherland Shire Gamers are members of the Sylvania Heights Community and Youth Club. Like you we are gamers who enjoy a range of table top games, we run 3 events the MOAB convention (which includes our Bring and Buy), ShireCon (which also includes our Bring and Buy) and the Second Hand Stall at the CANCON convention.
- We run these events to raise funds for our club and as a service to our fellow gamers, we are all volunteers.
- We do not have the resources to inspect and verify that each item on a Sellers list has been submitted, that the description provided is accurate or that the condition of the item is as described or inferred.
- We do not have the resources to provide comprehensive surveillance of the event or its patrons because of the intense level of activity that occurs in a relatively short period of time and confined space.
- Accordingly, Sellers who place items for sale in either of our stalls do so at their own risk we do not accept responsibility for the loss, theft or damage of any item.
Information to note for Sellers
- We will be continuing our THREE DAY PRICING OPTION; this is optional.
- Because we are accepting card payments, any payments to a Seller over $100 will be done by bank transfer.
- Given the amount of time and effort involved in collecting and posting items back to their owners a Handling fee of $10.00 will now be charged in addition to the postage costs.
Information to note for Buyers
- We do accept credit and debit cards, as well as cash
- Buyers are responsible for ensuring that the items they purchase are as described.
- In the interest of increasing security NO BAGS of any type including and not restricted to Backpacks, Shopping bags and plastic bags that have any contents in them are allowed inside the bring and buy stall. Bags may be left at your own risk at our storage area which will be manned at the entrance of the Bring and Buy Stall OR you can make other arrangements. As always, ALL bags must be presented for inspection prior to leaving the stall.

Barcodes and Labels
- If you submit your items on-line we will send back to you barcodes and labels in a format that can be easily printed and fixed to items for sale. This will make it easier to read your item labels and speed up the sales process.
- The barcode labels we provide will contain a bardcode, your seller code and item number, the price of the item for Saturday, Sunday and Monday, and approximately 30 words from the description. You can have a longer description, but only the first 30 or so characters will appear on these labels.
- The barcodes labels are 3 columns by 7 rows and match the this Avery product. When you print the barcode, please make sure the barcode is readable.
- To ensure efficiency and consistency, the B&B only accepts our labels on items, these are generated and supplied to you when you upload your seller list.
- Labels other than those supplied by the B&B may be accepted at the discretion of the B&B Organiser.
- Labels should be of a size that are easy to see and can be securely fixed to the item or its packaging. Self-adhesive labels are good and extra security can be obtained by tapping over them with sticky tape.
- Labels can be placed on the item or inside the packaging, making it harder for the label to come off.
- Items for sale need to be clearly labelled. The label consists of a Sellers Code, an Item number and a price. The Sellers code MUST be FOUR letters (e.g. your initials) and use the same letters for all your items. Each item must have its own unique item number and when pricing items use whole dollars only, no cents. No item less than $2.00 will be accepted.
- Just remember, we can not sell an item without a label!
- Additional information like a description of the item is also recommended.
- If we can’t read it we can’t and won’t sell it. We don’t have the time to decipher somebodies hand writing.
- Recommend that all labels and accompanying information is printed in a reasonable sized font.
- Complete the Sellers form with your own details and a contact number and email address that you will regularly check (again legibly record details).
- Record each item’s details on the form.
- Recommend electronic registration.
- Individual items - vary from large items (e.g. a board game), a collection of figures as part of an army or force to a variety of smaller sized individual items.
- When packaging items please remember that some people will want to inspect the contents before purchasing, so wrapping these items in a `clear’ film is recommended for example glad wrap or even zip lock bags.
- If packaging smaller items for e.g. individual miniatures use oversized zip-lock bags and place a backing card inside the bag, this increases the size of the item making it harder to lose and easier to find if not sold.
- Extra security can be added to Zip-lock bags by stapling the open edges closed.
- Items will be picked up and put down multiple times, make sure you take this into account when packing items. This is especially important for large lots of figures which if not secured properly will rattle and roll around when handled and moved.
- Group lot sales for example box lots of books and miniatures need to be secured so that they remain a job lot and labelled correctly that they are sold as a job lot.
Inspection of Contents
- Clear packaging and a good description of an item or contents may negate the need to inspect the item prior to sale. As part of the description include if the contents are complete and or missing items etc.
- The Seller must clearly label any item that they do not want to be opened for inspection, items so marked will not be opened by staff, a verbal instruction is not sufficient it must be clearly described as such on the item.
Filling Out The Form
- The Rego form contains instructions on the first page. Please make sure you read and follow the instructions correctly to ensure there are no issues when uploading your file.
- To assist with filling out the SKU for the Item List, as this is a spreadsheet, when you enter in your first item code, e.g. JDOSSG1, you can then select the cell and drag the small square on the bottom right of that sell down and it will prefill that code for you on the following lines
- An image of the instructions is provided here as well;

Sellers will be notified of any monies that are being retained and asked to provide banking details to facilitate the transfer of any monies held.
