CHECKOUT PROCEDURES

*We will provide you with a hard copy of the Checkout Procedures at your booth during setup on Friday for reference throughout the event.

Receipt books will be provided. Print the customer’s name at the top of the receipt. Record their address and email ONLY if you need it for your own records.

When writing up a sale, please include a description of the item sold, price, and your individual checkout code (the museum will provide you with a four-digit code). PLEASE TOTAL YOUR SALES AT THE BOTTOM OF THE RECEIPT. The cashiers will compute and collect the sales tax, so you don’t have to do that at all.

If a piece is special-ordered, it must be paid in full. 5. No private transactions/sales can be made.

There will be central cashiers for all purchases. Style accepts cash and all major debit cards and credit cards (no checks). We will have up to four “roaming” cashiers who can provide expedited credit card checkout on iPads for customers, as well as 1 – 2 permanent checkout stations at the front of the museum.

Write up sales in the triplicate receipt books provided. Customers will take the entire triplicate receipt to the cashiers. MCD keeps the WHITE copy, the customer keeps the PINK copy, and the YELLOW copy, stamped “paid,” will be returned to you for your records. When the customer comes back to you with the “paid” receipt, you will then give them the wrapped item. “All Sales Final” is stamped at the bottom of the customer’s receipt. Please return your sales book to the cashier’s desk when you leave.

Artists are responsible for wrapping all purchases and should provide tissue and bags or boxes. The Museum will not handle any post-event shipping arrangements for purchases made at the event.

POST EVENT PROCEDURES

Within five days after the show, we will send you an accounting of your sales. Please check it carefully and let us know right away if there are any discrepancies with your own records. If we don’t hear back within a week after sending the report, we will assume you agree with the amount of sales. You will be paid approximately (3) three weeks after the close of the event and will receive a full accounting of your transactions.
