Tagging Instructions

TO SAVE YOU TIME & FRUSTRATION AT DROP OFF, BE SURE TO READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS PRIOR TO TAGGING!

Mom’s Marketplace reserves the right to reject items and to pull off the floor any items we find unsuitable. We also reserve the right to not accept items that we consider to be excessively overpriced. As stated in the consignor agreement that you sign during the registration process, Moms Marketplace is not responsible for lost goods, for damaged goods, for stolen goods or any acts of God (ex: tornado, damaging winds etc.). that may affect the items that you have consigned.

We do implement security measures to mitigate loss.

TIPS FOR TAGGING:

  • Do NOT Procrastinate!  The tagging system automatically closes 5 days prior to the sale.
  • Do not alter the size of the printed tag. Bar Code scanning system is connected to this tag.  We will not  sell your item if you alter the size of the tag.  The barcode scanner will not operate on altered tags.
  • Do not have any handwritten information on the tag
  • You must make a choice to discount/donate when you make the tag. We cannot change your tags.  No handwriting the word discount on the tag. The computer must read it from the bar code.
  • If you are going to donate, it makes sense to also choose discount.
