Converting Drop-off Donations to Inventory Items

by Noah Valen | Jun 2, 2023

When collecting and tracking drop-off donations, you will have the ability to create inventory items from the drop-off records. When adding inventory using this process, the inventory is tracked to the donor and you can later run a report to see inventory from that specific donor. To do this, follow the steps below.

1. Once you have logged into your ThriftCart account, navigate to Drop off donations > View Drop off history.

9. Once you finalize this item, the system will print a barcode and an inventory item will be generated.If you wish to stop adding inventory using this method, be sure to exit and then re-enter the item adder.

Be sure to return to the top of the item adder to add additional inventory until all items from that drop-off have been added into inventory.
