Barcode FAQ
Q: How will I determine the barcodes I need?
A: The number, selling price and discount option will determine the barcodes needed.
Q: How will I get the barcodes?
A: Consignors print their barcodes using labels that are compatible with "Avery 5160 or 8160" labels.
Q: What about ½ price items?
A: If you want to sell your items ½ price the last day of the sale, when ordering your barcodes online click "YES" under "Allow Discount". Your barcode will have shown your consignor number and price. Your item will remain full price during our ½ price sale. If you Do Not want to sell your items ½ price the last day of the sale, when ordering your barcodes online click "NO" under "Allow Discount". Your barcode will have “No Disc” (meaning No Discount) printed next to the price. You item will remain full price during our ½ price sale.
Q: Do I need to enter all my barcodes at one time?
A: You may enter as many barcode orders as you would like to print. You can print them immediately after you submit, or login to your Consignor Home page at a later date and select and print an order. Consider you have 30 labels per page. Each time you submit a barcode order, it creates a Batch #.
Q: What if I need additional barcodes?
  • I ran out of the dollar amount that I’ve already printed?
    Just pull up your previously entered batch# and print only the page with the dollar amount that you need. There is no need to enter another batch #.

  • I need additional dollar amounts?
    Simply login and order again. Please make a note of the new batch# and print.
Q: Can I reprint a "Batch#"?
A: Yes. You will go to the "Consign or Account Page" to view and print any of your barcode orders. Once your batch is pulled upon your screen, you may print only the page(s) of dollar amounts that you need.
Q: Can I re-print an order?
A: Yes. You can view and printany of your barcode orders from your Consignor Home page as often as you wish.
Q: What if I change my mind about a price or discount option?
A: If you change your mind on the price or half-price option that you printed on an item's barcode, you MUST make a new barcode. DO NOT mark out the barcode's price or discount and change it manually - the item will scan at the checkout according to what is encoded in the barcode, not what is hand-written on the barcode sticker.

Additionally, do not place a new barcode sticker over an old one. Please make a new tag with a new barcode. We will review all stacked barcodes at check-out. Todiscourage price theft, items with stacked barcodes will be sold under the bottom barcode's consignor number.
Q: What if I order too many barcodes?
A: Keep them!!! Save any unused barcodes for future Teacher 2 Teacher Consignment sales. The barcodes do not expire! Reminder: Minimum price is $.50
Q: Can I use my barcodes from a previous sale?
A: Yes, beginning with the 2016 sales season. If you are unsure when certain barcodes were ordered, simply enter new barcodes and look at the resort code that shows on the right side of the barcode (it will be a single or double letter). If this letter matches the barcodes you have already, they are still good.
Q: What if the labels do not line up when I print the barcodes?
A: When you click print a box will appear, make sure "page scaling" is set to "None". This should correct the problem. Visit Barcode Printing Tips for additional barcode printing information.
Q: What do the letter(s) located to the right of the barcode mean?
A: These letters are resort codes which we will use to resort unsold items at the end of the sale so that they can be sorted by consignor number for your pick-up convenience.
Q: Why would I need to use CUSTOM hand written tags?
  1. Barcodes will adhere easily to flat services such as books, game boxes, bagged or boxed items etc. Handwritten tags with the barcode attached to the tag are recommended for large items, irregular shaped items, items packaged in more than one box, dress up clothes, etc.

  2. If you would like to keep track of your own inventory you can use a tag to help you determine what specific item(s) sold. We do not keep consignor inventories. We only keep an inventory of the number of items and price of items sold for each consignor.
