Business Management

Goldenseal is business management software for small businesses that sell products or services, and that don't need a point of sale system. We use it every day to run sales and shipping at Turtle Creek Software.

Goldenseal works for:

  • Retail sales
  • Wholesalers and distributors
  • Internet and mail order sales

Sales Tracking Software

Goldenseal includes Sales transactions to record the items that you sell, or services that you provide. Use the Print Forms command to print invoices or sales receipts.

You can use the Deposit Funds command immediately to deposit cash sales. Or use the Billing command to create customer bills and track accounts receivable.

If you frequently sell the same items or provide the same services, set them up as Cost Items. Goldenseal will compute the current retail price automatically for each item, based on the purchase price and your current markup.

When you enter sales, you can use an itemized breakdown, and fill in the sale items from pop-up lists. Goldenseal automatically enters current pricing for each item.

If you assemble or manufacture items, use Assemblies to combine labor and materials into larger sale units.

Shipping & Delivery Methods

Goldenseal lets you set up shipping and delivery charges, based on either the weight or cost of the items you sell. When you enter sales items, it automatically figures the shipping charges, based on the method and overall weight or price.

Goldenseal stores delivery instructions and separate billing, mailing and shipping addresses for each customer, and it will fill in the appropriate address for each sale, depending on the shipping or delivery method.

You can use the printed forms command to automatically print mailing labels or shipping labels.


Goldenseal lets you set up multiple markup systems to calculate the price of each item you sell or each service you provide.

You can include "on sale" prices in each markup system, and you can automatically trim prices to "retail" pricing like $9.95.

Customer Discounts

Goldenseal lets you set up a system of customer discounts. You can give different discounts to different customers, and you can apply different discounts to each type of item that you sell.

Goldenseal automatically calculates the discount amount when you enter sales items for each customer.

Inventory Control

Goldenseal automatically tracks inventory quantities for the items that you buy and sell. When you enter purchase transactions, it automatically increases the inventory count for each item you've bought. When you sell items or use them in projects, Goldenseal automatically reduces the count. You can also use Inventory Transfers to adjust inventory amounts.

Cost Accounting

Goldenseal helps you to track expenses and income, so you know how well you are doing on each part of your business. Goldenseal handles job costs, customer billing, accounts payable, accounts receivable and payroll.
