METRC track-and-trace works by tracking what are called RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) tags. As a licensee and METRC user, you will need to order these tags directly from your METRC account. Here is a video showing how to complete this process:

Written step-by-step instructions for both parts are here:

4. On the next screen, click "New Tag Order"

4. On the order form, select the amount of plant tags and package tags.

Note: We suggest ordering as many tags that you can. They never expire and running out will bring your entire business to a standstill.

5. Lastly, finish filling out the order form with your shipping and payment details:

Note: Tags cannot be shipped to PO Boxes and should be shipped to a secure location. Paying by check or money order can delay your tag shipment by up to two weeks.


  1. If you are a cultivator you will need to purchase both plant and package tags.
