Retail PO Pre-ticketing Requirements

 How do I Pre-Ticket Retail Orders?

Required for ALL Retail Orders: Price Ticket and/or Label

For retail orders, vendor will be required to order price tickets or labels, depending upon the type of product being sold, from FineLine or CheckNet. The buyer will pre-determine what ticket or label is needed for the item and this will be shown to the vendor upon release of the order on FineLine or CheckNet. Retail orders do NOT require the 3×3 direct polybag label (with the exception of select UO brand apparel and accessories POs – please see below for further information).

Brands will also require jewelry cards to be purchased from EU Design.  Please visit the “Jewelry & Accessory Requirements” page to see section “Women’s Jewelry and Accessories Carding” for further information regarding ordering and application.

  • Labels are to be attached to the product, not to the packaging of the product, unless the product will be displayed in the packaging in stores.
  • Tickets are to be attached to the product using a plastic swift tack fastener, unless otherwise instructed by your buyer.
  • If the product is packed in a decorative display box or packaging, the label should be placed on the back, lower right corner of the box or on the bottom of the box. When in doubt, please check with your buyer to confirm how the item will be displayed.
  • The tickets or labels must not conceal any Country of Origin markings.
  • All vendor tags containing manufacturer’s suggested retail price must be removed prior to affixing URBN price tickets.
  • 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.
  • For any questions regarding retail ticket placement, please contact your buyer.

What is Dual Ticketing?  Dual Ticketing is the requirement that a PO include both the URBN Retail Ticket/Label and Direct SKU Label.

Retail Dual Ticketing Categories by Brand - January 2023

Please refer to the URBN US Dual Ticketing Guide for ticket and label placement instructions.

Please also refer to the “Direct PO Pre-ticketing Requirements” page for additional Direct SKU Label Placement Instructions.

*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.


Free People Orders – Class 8131 

Free People POs for class 8131 requires a “return warning tag” to be ordered and attached to garments by the vendor prior to shipping.

  • The location of barcode/price tag WILL NOT CHANGE and should continue to be hung as usual on the left hand side of the dress.
  • The return warning tag should be attached on the right hand side of the dress on the OPPOSITE SIDE of the barcode/price tag.
  • You will release this return tag to be printed along with your barcode tickets.  There will be no added steps to ordering this additional ticket.
