In our continuing effort to move merchandise through our DC to the sales floor as quickly and efficiently as possible, AKIRA has developed the following price ticket information requirements to guide the vendor in determining the best method for marking merchandise. Any items not ticketed will incur a fine as described in Section VIOLATION CHARGEBACKS. AKIRA requires all merchandise to be ticketed.


The following information needs to be visible on all merchandise: (INCLUDE CURRENT TAG)

  • Scannable and Human-readable UPC barcode: UPC A-format barcode must be sourced from iLabel
  • Vendor style number
  • Size (if applicable)
  • Color (if applicable)
  • Retail price

AKIRA has approved iLabel as a supplier of tickets and labels. If you wish to use your own supplier, a test UPC code must be sent and confirmed by your.


Some merchandise is either too small to facilitate a price ticket or is displayed in a bulk-type container. We allow these items to be treated as Prices-off or Display Priced. These items require a human readable barcode and retail price displayed somewhere on the item or display.


As our business continues to grow, AKIRA is looking to partner with vendors that provide pre-labeling services. This includes shipping our orders to us with our AKIRA label and care labels already sewn into the garment in the case of apparel, and jewelry shipped to us displayed on AKIRA hang tags in the case of accessories.
