Step 2 - TagGING & vendor disclosure form

How to Tag Your Items

***Please note that we will NOT be accepting old (non-barcoded) tags.***

  • Tagging must be done using the guidelines provided my My Consignment Manager to ensure they are read properly by the scanner.  Essential points include:       
    • You will only be able to enter items until 11:59 PM on Thursday April 26th.  You can still print tags after this time.
    • Use only ONE unique tag with its own unique item number for each item to be sold (tags cannot be copied, but multiple tags can be generated simultaneously with the same description).
    • IF TRANSFERRING ITEMS FROM ANOTHER SALE, you must make sure that
      • The previous tag’s description length is not too long for the current sale’s tag.  You can do this by generating a list of tags to print, and the system will confirm this for you.
      • The previous tag’s discount/donate options do not conflict with the current tag (note that we do NOT have a discount option), and
      • Your seller number on the printed tags matches your registered seller number for this sale and new season
    • Use 60-67# cardstock paper.  NO dark colours – only pastel colours or white will read properly.  NO multi-coloured or patterned paper
    • Use an inkjet printer (no dot matrix) with a normal (not best quality) printout.  Faded barcodes and tags that are too dark may not work.  Ensure the barcodes are crisp and clear
    • Do not place TAPE over the barcodes.
  • Include as much detail as possible: brand, colour and garment type when preparing the tags. Note that during the sale tags can be separated from your item; every effort is made to match the lost tags with the corresponding items, however this process is only successful if the tags have a clear description of the item.
  • Use a RED pen or marker to circle the price of the items you want returned to you if they are not sold.  Do not interfere with the barcode. These items must be priced over $20, and have previously been referred to as Red Dot items.  
  • Securely fasten the tag where indicated to the article using safety pins. Covering the safety pin with tape makes the tag more secure. Do not cover the barcode.
  • For toys and baby equipment, use tape on both ends of the tag to secure it to the item. Please do not tape the tag all the way around. Do not cover the barcode.
  • Place smaller items such as books, shoes and socks in Ziploc bags and then tape the tag onto the bag. Do not cover the barcode.
  • DO NOT put clothes inside Ziploc bags.
  • DO NOT use string to tie clothes together -- only use safety pins
  • DO NOT place tags inside Ziploc bags as this will slow down the check-out process.
  • DO NOT interfere with the barcode in any way.
