How to Order Package Tags for Metrc Migration

Package tags are unique tags that Metrc requires venues to purchase in order to accurately track the sale of all MJ products. Therefore, before you begin your Metrc migration you will first need to make sure you order these tags in advance. 


Metrc package tags are printed in Florida and usually take around 7-14 days to arrive after you place your order. Due to this shipping lag, we strongly encourage all venues that are performing a Metrc migration to order your tags as early as possible. Follow the steps below to learn how many package tags you should order as well as how to order the package tags.

  5. After running the report with the new 'state' filter, select the blue 'Download' button at the top of the report
  6. A spreadsheet will now download containing all active packages within your POSaBIT system
  7. Once the download completes, locate the report in your "downloads" folder and open it in Excel
  8. You will now see a list of all your packages including information such as product tag, room, etc. Next, scroll to the right and locate the "Is MJ" column (This should be column K

  12. Once your spreadsheet has been sorted, select and delete all of the rows that have 'false' in the 'Is MJ' column
  13. Now that you have removed all non-mj products from your report, you can scroll to the bottom and find the total number of rows
  14. Multiply the total number of rows you have by 1.35 to find the number of package tags you should order from Metrc
