    STANDARD Retail Barcode Numbers – The barcodes we supply are in EAN-13 format (or UPC-12 format if you prefer). These are standard retail barcodes that are suitable for any product.

    WORLDWIDE BARCODES – Our barcodes can be used worldwide! Because our barcodes are in EAN-13 format (European Standard), they are suitable for use in the UK and every country in the world (note: We can also supply barcodes in UPC format if requested UPC is the American Standard).

    NO MEMBERSHIP FORMS – You won’t have to fill in any membership forms if you get your barcodes from our company! All you have to do is order your barcodes online and wait to receive them by email.

    NO JOINING FEE – We won’t charge you any joining fee.

    NO ANNUAL FEES – Buy barcodes from us for a one-off payment. We will never charge you annual fees (or any other future fees).

    AFFORDABLE – Our barcodes are very reasonably priced for small businesses and individuals. We also offer discounts on larger orders.

    LEGAL – The barcode numbers we sell are completely legal and valid for use (both in the UK and worldwide). Our company is a registered company (“Barcodes Limited”) with a physical office. You can see our company registration details on the NZ Government Companies Office website here or have a look at our Certificate of Incorporation.

    THE UNITED KINGDOM – Our barcodes are suitable for use in the UK (and Europe) and worldwide. We have thousands of customers successfully using our barcode numbers in the UK. We understand the barcoding requirements and practices in the UK and can, therefore, provide expert customer support.

    INTERNATIONAL BARCODES NETWORK – Part of a network of international barcode suppliers. Members focus on supplying barcodes within a specific country, so they can best understand the specific barcoding requirements in that country and provide prompt local-language barcoding advice and service. Members have access to resources to help ensure that more retailers in each country accept their barcodes. This means that barcodes purchased from our members are accepted by more retailers internationally than any other barcode reseller. Visit International Barcodes Network here.

    VERIFICATION REPORTS – We are the only barcode reseller in the world that can offer independently accredited barcode verification reports. Some retailers require verification for all barcodes entering their stores. A verification report is a test scan of a barcode on its final packaging or label using a highly sensitive machine called a “barcode verifier”. The barcode is given a grade that indicates how easily it can be decoded by scanning machines (a passing grade is A, B, C or D).

    CHECKING OF BARCODE NUMBERS – There is some illegal use of barcode numbers on the internet (e.g., Amazon). Because of this, we check all of our barcode numbers on the internet before issuing them to our customers.

    BARCODE IMAGES – Our company can supply high-quality barcode images (600 dpi) for your barcode numbers. We can supply the images in many different formats (jpeg, eps, pdf, eps etc.), and we can customize the images as required. For example, we can do higher resolution images if requested (up to 2540 dpi); we can customize the barcode size to suit your packaging requirements. We can add text above or below the barcode if requested (e.g. the product or company name).

    FAST SERVICE – We have a speedy turnaround time. We process our standard barcode package orders automatically so that you will receive these straight away. For other orders, you will usually receive these within hours of placing your order (or the following morning at the latest). On very rare occasions, it can take us a little longer to complete an order. Contact us if you need your barcode urgently.

    CUSTOMER COMMITMENT– Our business only works because our customers are happy and satisfied. We are committed to providing our customers with top-quality service, advice, and ongoing support.

    FRIENDLY CUSTOMER SERVICE – We are nice, friendly people (really!)

    CONTACT – We are easy to contact! You can contact us in many different ways (email, live chat, phone etc.), and we will respond ASAP. The best way to contact us is by email.

    ACCURATE ADVICE – We want you to get what you need as easily & affordably as possible. We will give you the truth – if we can’t help you, we’ll tell you!

    FREE BARCODE REGISTRATION – We can offer free barcode & product registration with all barcode packages. Also available as an additional paid service for ISBN and ISSN barcodes. Other barcode resellers cannot provide this. Barcode registration will increase the profile of your product on the internet.

    CHARITABLE – A Charity owns our business. Therefore all proceeds go to charitable purposes (Better World Initiative)
