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.  See the How to Price & Prep Items page for pricing suggestions. 

  • SIZE:  Enter the first size on the garment tag. Example:  If tag says 3-6 months, enter as 3 months.  If tags says 10/12, enter size 10.
    • When entering sizes in the computer for your tags, DO NOT use the letter sizes (S,M,L) in for infant or children’s clothing.  These are ONLY used for Juniors and Young Men’s. 
    • For children’s clothing tagged by manufacturer as S, M, L…enter a corresponding number size. 
      Example:  If garment tag says XS on boys shirt, enter your sons size when he wore it.  Usually boy’s XS = size 7.
    • Teen clothing AKA Juniors & Young Men’s clothing has more size options in the drop down menu.  Simply enter the size as it is printed on the manufacturer tag.  You can select letter sizes (S,M,L) number sizes (6, 7, 8) or waist sizes (28, 30, 32).
      Entering your tags correctly helps us plan and organize the sales floor efficiently during set up! 
  • CATEGORY: Select the most accurate category from the drop down menu.  This step is really IMPORTANT – the categories you enter tell us how to plan the sales floor.  If you enter 100 Juniors clothing items as Girls Clothing – we will allow too much room in the Girls section & NOT ENOUGH in the Juniors section. 

Category examples:

    • Infant & Children’s clothing – use Boys Clothing or Girls Clothing.
    • Teen clothing – use Juniors or Young Mens Clothing
    • Shoes – same as clothing – we have separate categories for Boys, Girls, Juniors & Young Mens shoes.
    • Toys – choose from girls, boys, large, outdoor…. there are a lot of choices to appropriately categorize your item.  Please take the time to do this correctly, it helps us allow enough space per category on the sales floor BEFORE drop offs begin. 

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

5. Check the DONATE BOX for unsold items to be donated.  The box will remain checked until you un-check it.  NOTE: Items checked DONATE will automatically be marked 1/2 Off. 

6. 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.


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-downPLEASE 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.
PLEASE DO NOT tape the bottom of the tag down.  The bottom part of the tag needs to remain “free.”  At check out, all of the tag bottoms are torn off & handed to cashiers to scan the bar code.

IMPORTANT: If tags are not printed properly, the bar codes do not scan and cashiers have to manually input the tiny print at the bottom of the tag.  Mistakes happen when typing which could result in not getting paid for a sold item.
