Tag ordering FAQ

Carolina Villatoro Updated by Carolina Villatoro

As you leverage the Byte Technology solution, you will regularly order RFID tags from the Dashboard.

Two Ways to Order Tags

  1. Tags tab on the left hand Navigation Bar 

  1. Reorder via Products tab > Tag Orders


When you order tags you will see or be prompted to enter the following information:



Product SKU

When a product is created in the Byte Technology Dashboard, an internal SKU number is generated.

This number is the first set of digits encoded in each RFID tag.

This field is NOT editable. 

Tag type

Byte Technology supports a total of 4 different types of tags. The tags are of different sizes and are meant for different types of products. 

Note: Drink tags and Metal Safe tags are both Flag tags and have the same appearance.

Printed text on tag 

SKU Number is in grey as it is not customizable and will be printed on every tag for every product. 

The open text field box is to customize what name of the product you wish to have printed on this particular tag order. This is helpful if you have rotating variations of a product but want to use the same SKU number but need the text on the tag to show the current variation. 

Max limit of 32 Characters 

Name of the product in your product library is what shows on the tablet and customer receipt

Number of tags

You can order tags in increments of 100. Every roll of tags is a different QTY based on what you ordered. As little as 100 QTY up to 4,000 QTY can fit on one roll.
