Getting more information from a barcode

There are many barcode databases and apps out there. Barcode database sites or apps search the internet for information about the particular barcode number. The returned information is generally company name and/or contact details, relevant product information. Sometimes the search can direct you to where you can purchase the product from.

You can search for an EAN-13 or UPC barcode on various sites or apps (such as International Barcodes Database, IBNREG, or using smartphone apps). If you own a barcode number, and no results are found when you run a search, you can have your barcode registered to ensure your information is displayed when searched.


You can also use the IBNREG search function on our site here
