Utilizing Tags in Hike

Utilizing Tags in Hike

Tags are a useful way for businesses to group products into searchable groups, that allows for easier retrieval. Unlike Brands, which generally refer to something specific, tags use more common words to allow for a broader search category.

These could include tags such as:

  • A Specific Colour
  • Winter Sale
  • Popular Choices
  • New Releases

In Hike POS, retailers can add tags into their products in two ways:

  1. By adding the tag directly into the Tag section of Hike
  2. By adding the tag when creating a Product.

Make your items easier to search for, by creating customizable tags that enable users to sort through items per your own search terms.
