Returnly Tags are special product-level or order-level tags that drive a specific functionality within the Returnly system. They can be used to mark products as non-returnable preventing customers from initiating a return for those items, override your return policy’s default eligibility window or return shipping rate, generate an additional label for a single product, and displays the length, width, and height on the return shipping label and takes these dimensions into account for shipping costs.

For product-level tags, it is best to keep in mind that once an order has been created and fed into Returnly, these tags can no longer be modified. This means that by adding any of these Returnly tags on the product-level would only affect new orders moving forward. All previous orders would retain their original product-level tags.

Any merchant using Shopify can add Returnly Tags to their products. Merchants using other e-commerce platforms can also use these tags if their platform supports them. Each Returnly Tag would follow the same format: rtly-{tag name}:__
