The bill means nothing to them. The only reason I process a bill is so I get my commission on the product. As a matter of fact, the product I take in, or take out (old bread) isn't checked by the Wal-Mart receiver to see if it matches the bill! It's called "scan based payment". Wal-Mart ONLY pays the bread company for what it scans as sold at the front register. They take NO LOSS on theft or missing product or damaged product for that matter (damaged by them or customers). SO, if they decide to have a company picnic and nobody scans the rolls they use thru the front register, GUESS WHAT? The bread company just bought it for them!
Yes. that sure sounds like consignment. Full stores with zero dollars of inventory. Now that's power!
