Direct PO Pre-ticketing Requirements

 How do I Pre-Ticket Direct Orders?

For all direct orders, vendor will be required to order 3×3 Direct SKU labels from FineLine or CheckNet.  A price ticket/label will also be required for the majority of orders. The URBN US Dual Ticketing Guide can be found here.

*Please refer to the BHLDN pre-ticketing guide for instructions to pre-ticket BHLDN Direct orders.

*Nuuly POs require Dual Ticketing and should follow the Direct PO Pre-ticketing Guidelines.

Dual Ticketing Required

Please see below for which items will require both a direct label and a retail price ticket/label. If you do not see your product category listed under the brand you are working with – you ONLY need the direct SKU label.

Direct Dual Ticketing Categories by Brand - January 2023

Dual ticketing is not required for Terrain live plants or BHLDN orders, nor for URBN Renewal.

Reminder: When you release your order from FineLine or CheckNet, the system will display exactly which tickets/labels you are required to order. If you are required to order a direct label and a price ticket, please ensure that you are selecting BOTH the direct label and the price ticket before you complete the order.

  • The direct label will include the following information as indicated on the PO:
    -Item Number
    -Item Description
    -Size & Color (if applicable)
  • All existing barcodes on the packaging should be removed or covered.
    • If applying the URBN Retail Price Sticker over an existing vendor barcode but the URBN sticker does not completely cover the barcode, please first apply a plain white sticker to cover the barcode and apply the URBN sticker on top.
  • All vendor tags containing manufacturer’s suggested retail price must be removed prior to affixing URBN tickets/labels.
  • All merchandise that is shipped in a polybag with an opening greater than 5” needs to have a warning label on the bag that states the following (or something similar):

Warning: To avoid danger of suffocation, keep away from babies and children. Do not use in cribs, beds, carriages or play pens. THIS BAG IS NOT A TOY

  • Do not cover the warning with the direct SKU label.
  • If the warning is preprinted on the center back of the polybag where the label should be placed, put the direct SKU label directly above or below the warning.
  • If manually attaching a warning label to the polybag, the warning must be placed directly above or below the direct SKU label.

 

Direct SKU Label Placement Instructions

  • The direct SKU label measures 3” x 3”. For items packed in a polybag, the label must be placed on the center back of the individual polybag. Please ensure that all packaging has a surface area that will accommodate the size of this label.
  • If the item is packed in an individual box that does not require a polybag, the SKU label should be placed on the center bottom of the box.  Boxed items MUST be placed in a polybag if the SKU label will obscure ANY images or product information contained on the box.
  • If the packaging is too small to accommodate the SKU label, it is permitted to fold the label in order for it to fit the largest side of the package. Please make every attempt to have the Item Number fully visible.
  • For tubular shaped products, such as posters and maps, the label must be placed with the barcode running lengthwise with the tube.
  • For all direct home products shipped in cartons, the direct SKU label needs to be placed on the top of the carton, so that the label is facing up when conveyed.
  • Retail ticket should be attached to the garment according to the Retail PO Pre-ticketing Requirements.
  • Direct SKU label should be placed on the center back of the polybag
  • *It is critical that the retail ticket is not showing through the polybag on the same side as the direct label. The two barcodes should be on opposite sides of the polybag, so that the retail barcode does not interfere with scanning the 3×3 direct label barcode.
