Working with inventory program and Tagging

image26

*We use a very easy on line tagging system that makes tag preparation a breeze! 

*You WILL NOT be able to follow your inventory during the sale. We don’t have the program set for live feed at the fairgrounds so the registers will not be prepped to do so 


Here are the steps you should follow to tag your items:



VERY IMPORTANT:

image27

 The deadline to enter your items is Wednesday April 29, 2020. 12 noon. 

* It is best to not wait until the night before to start your inventory.  

  • There may be a delay in the program due to so many waiting to enter their inventory at the last minute

* You cannot make any changes to your inventory after this deadline, but you can print tags up until drop off

 *Please be sure to verify your mailing address on your consignor homepage as this is the address we will use to mail checks. If the correct address is not listed and your check is not delivered to you, the consignor will have to pay the $35 stop-check fee for a replacement check.  

When you are ready to work with your inventory, select “Work with Consigned Inventory” on your homepage.  It will take you to a page like this one. 


Work With Consign Inventory

When you are ready to work with your inventory, select “Work with Consigned Inventory” from the Menu Drop Down.

Sort items by gender, size, and category before you sit down to enter them into the system.  You’ll save yourself a lot of time and frustration.

*Please select the correct category for each item. In the state of PA we are required to charge sales tax and the categories are set for this.  By selecting the wrong category, you could be charging sales tax to items that should not be taxed.

Selecting the correct Size also help in planning floor space at the sale

Please do not print Blank Tags.

When your item comes to the check-out we verify that the item matched the tag. -If the tag has a description of "SHIRT" or 'PANTS" we have no way to verify it is the correct item. Each tag needs a category, size, and description. Having a full correct description on the tag helps keep track of your items. 

-This is also helpful when trying to find lost tags!

-If tags are not prepared correctly Westmoreland Sale for Teen and Adults is not responsible for lost or stolen items and payment will not be made for such items.

*This also helps because you can print a variety of inventory reports based on category!

If you have a question or are not sure what category to use, you can call or email us.

Please see the Teen and Adult Guidelines for the number size ranges.

S- M -L - XL - XXL - XXL 

Shoe sizes are listed separate in drop down. 

DESCRIPTION #1 and #2

image34

*Description Line 1: Brand name and item in the first line. Examples: Old Navy denim shorts, Under Armour t shirt, Xbox 360 Game {24 spaces)

*Description Line 2: (24 spaces) Put specific identifiers- khaki camo cargo, purple sequins, 3 tank tops. The more specific you are in the key words in your description, the easier it will be for us to find it in the inventory if a tag is lost.

That means we’ll be able to sell it and credit your account even when a tag has been lost!  Without a good description, we can’t sell an item with a lost tag.

Select Price and QUANTITY

image35

*Price: Minimum full price is $2.00

*Qty: Default # is 1. If you have several items that use this same description, enter the quantity here. You won’t have to enter each item individually. Doing this will produce a bulk number of tags and add those items to your inventory. 

*Check to Discount: If you select this box, your item will be discounted automatically on Sunday.  We cannot go back and change this information during the sale.

Once this box is checked, it will stay checked for other items by default until

you uncheck it! 

*Discounted items outsell the things that are not reduced by 50% on Sunday!  This is something to consider when trying to decide about discounting. 

*Check to Donate: If you do not want an item back if it does not sell, check this box.  Again, once it is checked, it will stay checked by default. 

*Submit Item: Once you have entered the information for an item, click the “Submit” button to add the item to your inventory.

It will not be added if you do not click on this box! 


Please do not print Blank Tags. Each tag needs a category, size, and description.   

wORKING WITH OLD INVENTORY /TAGS

image36

Working with Inactive Inventory

*If you have items from a previous season, that information is stored in your “Inactive Inventory” unless you donated everything.

*To move items to active inventory for the current sale, go to your consignor homepage, click on “Work with Inactive Inventory”, check the boxes for the items you wish to sell in the current sale (make sure clothing is seasonally appropriate) and click “Make selected inventory active”.

* If items are still tagged from a previous sale be sure to check the re-sort number above the bar code to verify it is the same. If the re-sort numbers are the same as past seasons you do not need to reprint tags. If the re-sort number is different you will need to reprint tags for these items so that your current re-sort number is on your tags. If this number is different someone else will get your unsold items because they will have the old number.

PRINT TAGS

image37

Ready to print your tags

Make sure your printer settings are set at default.

Please be sure your printer and computer screen is set to 100% or default.

If your settings are zoomed or minimized the tags will not print correctly and may not scan at check out. 

Tags should print 6 to a page of card stock. 

**The quality of your tags directly affects your sales.  

Card stock

65-67 weight WHITE (Found at Walmart $3.97, Staples, Office Max have it. It does cost more)

Heavier paper can be used but uses more ink

Do not use regular copy paper! The tags will not hold up and will fall off of items

Bar codes printed on standard paper don’t scan. 

Select one of the options (Print All Tags), 

(Print Selected Tags) from our on line tagging system. 

Be sure to turn off any pop up blocker you may have running. 

When you generate tags they pop up in a new window for easy printing. 

If your printer’s toner/ink is running out, this may be the time to get a new cartridge!

If you decide you want to change ANY information (price, donation, 1/2 price option etc.) AFTER printing a tag, a NEW tag will have to be printed. 

The tags you print are fully filled out and the bar code will be on the tag. 

You can print your tags either a few at a time as you enter them, or all at once at the end. 

Highly discourage reusing a sheet of paper to reprint tags (using the back of it)

It is hard to know which tag to scan if bar code is on both sides. 

Once you have your tags printed, follow instructions on how to attach your tags. 

Do not HAND write changes on the tags, such as price change or to donate item. 

What is printed on the tag is what will be followed. 

No exceptions. 

Following these steps will make this well worth your time. 

Please make a list of all items over $20. These items will need to be checked in and scanned at drop off.
