RFID Tags for Online Shopping, Fashion Retailers Dec 02, 2022

Since the global outbreak of COVID-19, the length and scope of the blockade has continued to expand, and the number of online orders in the global retail industry has increased significantly. In order for all sales channels to best serve customers and provide the right product at the right time and place, strategic inventory management has become a major issue for every omnichannel player. RFID technology combined with inventory management software, each product has a unique code, easy to realize real-time inventory control, check which products need to be replenished at any time, and ensure that the products can be delivered to the corresponding stores or channels on time. For retailers, RFID is no longer just a good thing, but a real must-have.


Four factors to consider when choosing RFID tags in the retail industry

1. Define the products to be tagged with RFID

Today, RFID tags are widely used in many products such as denim, cosmetics, footwear and pharmaceuticals. Organizations such as Auburn University's ARC-RFID Labs have issued RFID inlays and global GS1 TIPP level classification certifications. EECC's TACTA has also greatly improved the testing and certification of RFID tags in different application fields. For example, retailers and apparel manufacturers are already able to purchase certified M RFID tags that can be used on apparel and footwear.

2. Where will the product be tracked?

Environmental conditions such as density, metal content, liquid or glass, etc. should be considered when selecting RFID tags. RFID tags are ubiquitous in retail stores, factories and distribution centers. In addition, we must also consider the packaging density of the product, and the expected read range, etc.

3. RFID chip selection and encryption

RFID chip manufacturers continue to improve the sensitivity of chip reading and writing, and at the same time increase production capacity. Chip selection, antenna design, and system-level testing will ensure qualified RFID tags

 In the apparel, retail, and consumer goods industries, item-level tracking has become an automated process in the source manufacturing process or distribution center. Using encrypted RFID tags facilitates centralized management and consistent quality.

4. RFID tag cost

RFID tags can cost anywhere from 10 cents to over a dollar, with considerable price variation. Plenty of products in the retail industry have driven the price of passive RFID roll labels down to pennies, while labels for special applications can cost much more due to special designs and features.
