Buy EAN Barcodes …

EAN-13 barcodes are the type of retail barcodes that are used on all retail products except for books and magazines, in all countries except for the USA and Canada (where UPC-A Barcodes are more common). EAN-13 Barcodes are 13 digit numbers which then are encoded in the EAN-13 symbology. Firstly you need to buy an EAN barcode – one for each of the unique products that are being barcoded. You will receive the barcode number and images via email. You can then incorporate one of the barcode images into your product packaging. When a retailer first receives your product, they scan the EAN Barcode for the first time and input your product information. From this point onwards when your EAN Barcode is scanned, the product information will automatically appear

Here are some common questions:

It is best practice to get a different barcode for each product or product variation. This is because stores use barcodes for two primary purposes: 1. Barcodes are used for obtaining the price of the product when scanned at the checkout. 2. Barcodes are used for keeping track of stock and deciding when to reorder an item.

This means that if the retailers only use barcodes for option 1, you can get away with having the same barcode for 2 product variations (i.e. different colours of the same product), however if the retailer uses barcodes for option 2 as well, then a different barcode will be required for each product variation.

In general retailers prefer to stock products that will be straight forward to manage. Some retailers may prefer not to stock products if they have to manually count how many are left of each size and reorder accordingly. Therefore is is recommended that you have a different barcode for each variation.

Yes they will. We can supply both EAN-13 Barcodes (which are used worldwide) and UPC-A Barcodes (USA and Canada).

Our barcodes are accepted in nearly all stores worldwide, however there are a few exceptions. For further details, please see Barcode Acceptance.

 If you’re not sure which kind of barcode you need for your product, our quick rule of thumb is as follows:
Selling in the USA = UPC-A
Selling internationally = EAN-13
