Frequently asked questions

  1. Why isn't there a promo price in my example template? Why are the promo data fields missing?
    The visual editor uses sample data from the last product that was added or edited. If that product isn't on sale, a promo price won't display. Update your example product in the visual editor by making an edit to any product that's on sale to so it becomes the last edited product and is referenced in the visual editor:
    • Select Products > List. Open a product currently on sale.
    • Select Actions > Edit Product. Select Submit.

    Return to the visual editor and the edited product will be the example.

  2. Do I have to make an entirely new label for promotions?
    No. If you don't want to create a new label specifically for promotions, we recommend updating a current template that you like. To preserve your original label, make a copy of it to use for promotions by selecting File > Make a Copy.

    Remember to update the template type from unclassified to label template so it appears in your promotions dropdown window.
  3. Why doesn't my new promotions template show up in my dropdown?
    Your template may not be classified as a label template, or your templates may need to be refreshed. Try the following.
    • Updated the template type from unclassified to label template. Locate the template in the listing, if there is a U beside it, click on it and update the template type to label template.
    • Refresh your templates. From the template listing select Actions > Refresh Visual Templates.
  4. Why are there additional values under each sale price in my label?
    Promotional prices is list data field and must be filtered, or all values in the list will be added to your template. If there's additional values in your label under any of the promotional fields, make sure you've applied a filter. See steps 5 and 6.
