How to Enter & Print Tags

Before you begin entering items, organize them into groups by gender and size.

Example: Separate GIRLS – SIZE 2 from BOYS – SIZE 5. Repeat this for each gender and size. The system “holds” the category (Girls Clothing) and size (Size 2) until you change it. This saves 2 keystrokes per item as you work through each category/size stack. ALSO, Keep the items hung/stacked in the same order as you entered them so it easy to match up tags after you print them.


How to Enter Items

1. Log into your seller account with your user id & password.

2. Click on ENTER ITEMS.

3. Select PRICE, SIZE & CATEGORY from drop down boxes.

  • PRICE:  Minimum price is $2.  Put 2 or more items together to meet the minimum price.
  • SIZE: see below for instructions


Infant and Children’s Sizing
Enter the first size on the tag. Example:  If tag says 3-6 months, enter as 3 months.  If tags says 10/12, enter size 10.

  • DO NOT use letter sizes (S,M,L) for ANY infant or children’s clothing.  These are ONLY used for Juniors and Young Men’s.  Otherwise, items will get placed in the wrong area & will not sell.
  • If the tag says S, M, L on children’s clothing, use the corresponding number size.  Example:  If tag says XS on boys shirt, enter your sons size when he wore it.  Usually boy’s XS is a size 7.

Juniors and Young Men’s Sizing

Teen clothing comes in all kinds of number and letter sizes:

Odd and Even numbers sizes….00, 0, 1 ,2 ,3, 4, etc
Waist sizes…26, 28, 29, 30, 32, etc
Letter sizes…..XXS, XS, S, M, etc

Enter the size as it is printed on the manufacturer tag, BUT please be sure to choose JUNIORS or YOUNG MENS category so it will be placed in the correct area.

Do NOT use Girls or Boys Clothing categories for Teen Clothing, use only Juniors or Young Mens.

 

  • CATEGORY:  Select the most accurate category. Example:  Select “Ride On Toy” not “Toy-Large” for a Fisher Price Easy Coupe Car.

5. Check the DISCOUNT BOX for items to sell ½ price on Saturday. The box will remain checked until you uncheck it.

6. Check the DONATE BOX for unsold items to be donated.  The box will remain checked until you uncheck it.

NOTE: Items checked for DONATE will automatically be marked to allow DISCOUNT.

7. Enter the brand name in the first DESCRIPTION box and a brief yet specific description in the second box.  Good descriptions help us match up loose tags to items.

 


QUICK TIPS:

The system “holds” your SIZE and CATEGORY selections until you change them. Save key strokes by grouping your items by size and category prior to entering them.

DON’T FORGET to change the size & category as you work through your stacks.  We use this information to plan space on the sales floor.  Incorrect sizes and categories cause overcrowded racks and poor spacing!

The system is down for maintenance from 12:00-12:15am EST every day.

How to Print Tags

fullsizerender1.  Use white or light pastel card stock.  Do NOT use regular copy paper.
2.  60# to 67#  card stock works best.  Heavier weight card stock can jam a home printer.
3.  Use an ink jet printer on normal or draft print setting. The “best” print setting is usually too dark and bar codes will not scan.
4.  Tags print 8 per page. Conserve paper by printing  tags in increments of 8.
5.  Don’t “Print All” tags at one time. Print small batches to make sure your bar codes look crisp.  If you’re unsure about your printer, just have your tags printed at a print/copy shop. Email them the pdf file or copy to a thumb drive and take to a print shop.  It’s very inexpensive.
6.  Cut tags apart and put in number order. If your items are arranged in the same order that you entered them, you can quickly match up tags to the items.

How to Attach Tags

do-not-tape-entire-tag-down
PLEASE DO NOT put tape over the top of bar codes!  The scanners are unable to read through the tape.  When cashiers have to quickly & manually enter all of the tag information, mistakes will happen which can result in you NOT being paid for the item.

 

IMPORTANT: If tags are not printed properly, the bar codes do not scan. This requires cashiers to manually input the tiny print at the bottom of the tag. Mistakes can be made which result in the item NOT being credited to the seller.
