Wikipedia defines…
Consignment as the act of consigning, which is placing any material in the hand of another, but retaining ownership until the goods are sold or person is transferred. This may be done for shipping, transfer of goods to auction, or for sale in a store (i.e., a [shop]). To consign means to send and therefore consignment means sending goods to another person. In case of consignment goods are sent to the agent for the purpose of sale. The ownership of these goods remains with the sender. The agent sells the goods on behalf of the sender, according to his instructions. The sender of goods is known as consignor and the agent is known as the consignee.
Features of consignment are:
  • The relation between the two parties is that of consignor and consignee and not that of buyer and seller
  • The consignor is entitled to receive all the expenses in connection with consignment
  • The consignee is not responsible for damage of goods during transport or any other procedure
  • Goods are sold at the risk of consignor. The profit or loss belongs to consignor only
A consignor who consigns goods to a consignee transfers possession but not ownership of the goods to the consignee. The consignor retains title to the goods. The consignee takes possession of the goods subject to a trust. If the consignee converts the goods to a use not contemplated in the consignment agreement, for example selling them and keeping the proceeds of the sale for himself, then the consignee commits the crime of embezzlement.
The word consignment comes from the French consigner, meaning “to hand over or transmit”, originally from the Latin consignare “to affix a seal”, as was done with official documents just before being sent.
