  • Discount: Check if you would like your item to be 50% off from 1:00 – 2:00 PM.
  • Donate: Check if you would like to donate your item if it does not sell. Items marked “Donate” will be marked “Discount”.
  • Size: Please choose the appropriate size from the drop down menu. If it does not have a size, please choose “Not Applicable”.
  • Description/Brand Name: Please include a short description or brand name.
  • Description: If you need to add more description to your item.
  • Category: Please choose the appropriate category from the drop down menu. There are many to choose from so keep scrolling until you find the right one.
  • Power Jagger: You may choose to create the same tag for multiple items. Just choose the number of items you want with the same information.

Click Add Items.

You will see all the items that you have entered below the Add Item(s) button. Please note: only items that you have entered in each session you are logged in will show up. You can click on an item and then choose to edit or remove that item is you need to make changes. Please be aware that the system will time out after 15 minutes of idle time, so be sure to save your work as you go.

How can I make the entering of items even more efficient?

  • Plan time to tag your items. It is more efficient if you tag many items at one time, because you will not be required to re-enter any of the fields (except price). All of the fields will remember the previous information except for the price. The efficiency comes in when you can tag for at least 15-30 minutes at a time. Also, the system logs you out if you are not active for 15-25 minutes, so you do not want to sort as you are tagging, because you could end up timing out.
  • Sort your items before you enter them by gender, then size. It will save you time in the end if you do this step up front.
  • Use tab button instead of mouse when moving from one field to the next. Click on Enter when complete.
  • Type your choices instead of choosing the field with your mouse. When using the drop down screens (price, size, and category), type the first number or letter of what you want to enter. Then continue to press the same number or letter until you find what you want. Then click the tab button and it will move you to the next field.
  • Description line hint: When you have repeat items, keep the description line generic and just adjust the price and hit Add Item. It is faster than typing each line every time. Be careful not to run your item descriptions to the very edge of the box or you may have to edit them later. Avoid using too many capital letters.

Print Tags –

    • You may click on do not mark my item(s) “Generated”. This will appear in the Tag Status column.
  • A PDF file will be created and open in a separate window.
  • You can either print the file once it opens or you may choose to save the file.
  • If you do not have a printer, you can choose to save the file on a jump drive and take it to a place such as OfficeMax to have them printed.
  • You can sort your tags by any column that you would like by pressing on the arrow next to the column heading.

  • Generate Your Projected Settlement Earnings Report – This tool is only a tool and does not guarantee any profits or that the sale report will be the same. This report is not connected to the final seller report from which your profits are calculated. It is simply a projection tool.
    • Select the items you want to view and enter the percentage you will make at this consignment sale (do not enter decimals).
    • Click on Generate Projected Settlement Report.
    • You can also use this report after your sale to show you all of your donated items and print the report for your taxes.
  • Reset Your Item Numbers Back to “1” – You only use this button when all of your sold items have been deleted and all of your other items have been donated or trashed. When all of your items are removed, then you can click on the Reset Item Numbers button and your item numbers will reset to zero. You will want to use this button when you want to start at item #1 for a new sale.
    • Resetting your item numbers – if you continue to use some of your existing tags, the system will continue with the item # from your last tag entered. For example, your first item may start at #101. This is acceptable and causes no issues with either your sale or your account. It is the only way to be able to use old items so that the tags will match the item in your account.
    • If you want to start over with #1 for this new sale, then you will have to remove all of your items from your entire account and click on the Reset Item Numbers button.
  • To View Your Final Settlement Report – Go to your Seller’s Home Page and view the table at the bottom of the screen. Click on View Settlement Report.
  • To Mark Your Items Sold – If you had items that were sold but the barcode on the tag was different from the one in your online inventory, then the item in your manage inventory will not be able to be marked sold. Thus you will need to manually mark it sold. The item will be in your view settlement and you will be paid, it simply could bot mark sold. To mark your item sold, you need to go to Manage Inventory and select the items you sold but were not in inventory and click on the button Mark Sold.

View Settlement – This will be available after the sale is complete.
