How do I create a promotional label in the visual template editor?

Follow these steps

To create a sales label, you must use the promotional_price data field, which is an example of a list data field. It must be placed within either a container or table to print correctly.

To use the promotional price in your sales label, follow these steps:

  1. Create your label with the other data fields you want.
  2. When you are ready to add the promotional price, click and drag the Container Component to your template and size it as needed.
  3. Click within the Data Field Window and select promotional_prices.
  4. To print labels for a specific sale instead of all sales, select Advanced Settings.

Frequently asked questions

  1. Why isn't my promotional price showing on the template I am creating?
    When creating a label, the visual editor chooses sample data based on the last product that was added or edited. If that product is not on sale, a promotional price will not display. To update your example product in the visual editor, make an edit to a product that is on sale to so it becomes the last edited product and is referenced in the visual editor:
    • Select Product > List.
    • Choose a product that is on sale and open it.
    • Select Actions > Edit Product.
    • Select Submit.

    Go back to your label. This product should now appear as the sample data in your template label.
