How to Use Custom Labels in Vendoo


Vendoo custom labels are like electronic stickers that you stick on your inventory for your own organizational purposes. When do you use them?


Vendoo users use labels for all sorts of things such as:


Item Source. You can track your items (and seller analytics) by creating a label for sources such as “The Bins,” “Goodwill,” “Wholesale,” or wherever you source. 



Action Items. I have labels named “Requires Attention,” “Pull to Model,” and “Pull to Donate,” which I apply as necessary to segment items that require action.



A Specific Lot. On Memorial day, I spent $500 at the thrift store during a giant sale (Eeeeek!). I have tagged each of the items to see how much profit I can yield from that specific lot.



Employees/ VAs. If you have a team that helps with your reselling business, applying a label with “Task Required” or “Employee Name”  are great ways to virtually assign  tasks                                                            to specific items as necessary. 



Consignment Clients. I use labels for each of my consignment items so that I can segment those items quickly for bookkeeping purposes. (After I download my inventory report, I filter by the custom label to create a spreadsheet report for just those items).


Category. Perhaps you choose to tag all of your “dresses” with the tag dress, just in case it does not appear in your title, so that you can collectively view the relevant category at once. 



Style/Attributes. Similarly, if you wish to apply labels to items for specific attributes for organization, you can do so to help you segment inventory. For example, you might create a label for your Vintage items as they can be listed on unique marketplaces                                                  (Etsy) or your Children’s items (Kidizen).


Location. If you don’t use a SKU system, perhaps you will use labels to note the physical location of your items to help you locate them when they sell! 



List Location. Using Vendoo with more than one account on the same platform? You might use a label to track which of the accounts on the marketplace you have items listed on. 


Multi-Quantity Items require unique attention, and the custom label will help to keep them organized. 



The options are endless! Now that you know how to use them, let’s talk about how to manage them:

On the inventory page, you can sort by custom label to view all items with the label selected. 


Then, you can view all items with custom labels at once. Of course, you can use these in conjunction with the other search, sorting, filtering, and organizational tools! 


Vendoo Analytics


On the analytics page, you can sort by custom label to get analytics for items with a particular label(s). 


This will show you your revenue, profit, average sale price (ASP), and marketplace-specific stats for the items with particular labels. So cool!
