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 a particular barcode number. The returned information is generally the company name and/or contact details and 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.
