Barcodes South Africa – your barcode whizzes
We are exceptional because no other barcode reseller anywhere, world wide, offers accredited verification reports for the barcode numbers they sell. But because we do this, our bar codes are acceptable to many more retailers than the codes sold by other barcode vendors internationally.
We also offer a registration service (it’s optional for you). This means we can register your barcodes and products on major barcode/product databases internationally if you want us to.
Do you find barcodes baffling? We did too…
Several years ago, we were frustrated in our search for a cost-effective barcode for our new product. It looked like overkill: to get one barcode, we were expected to buy in bulk (100 or more!) and commit to the membership fee and annual subscription costs of a global standards organisation. Financially, this did not make sense.
We decided to turn our frustration into a service for other businesses, and so formed Barcodes South Africa (Barcodes Limited). Our goal is to offer an affordable, process-friendly system to people needing barcodes.
With a barcode from us you also get:
A good price
Barcode South Africa numbers are priced reasonably: there is no “membership” fee and no ongoing costs of any kind. R275 is a one-off cost for a single barcode. The more barcodes you buy, the less you pay for each number.
An international EAN-13 number
Barcode South Africa numbers are EAN-13 format (or UPC-A format if that is what you want). The EAN-13 format is the official and most common type required for retail in Singapore and worldwide.
A verification service
Some retailers want a verification report from business people providing merchandise with printed bar codes. If your retailers requires this from you, we can provide this report.
We respond within hours to client orders. Processing can be immediate, or take a maximum of 24 hours.
Cheerful and obliging care
We like being helpful, and our aim is to be highly efficient and to satisfy our clients. Read some of our recent customer feedback.
Ownership, authenticity and a guarantee
As the buyer of a barcode from us, you become the official owner of the code. As such, you’ll be the only person (or organisation), world wide, legally authorised to use this unique number. Because we are a legal and registered company, we can offer you a certificate of authenticity for the barcode you buy from us, guaranteeing that the code is exclusively yours.
We can register your product and code on the major international databases if you like. This is optional; read all about our barcode registration service if you are interested in it.
* Our barcodes are accepted by more retailers worldwide because we can provide independently accredited Verification Reports (some retailers require Verification Reports – official test scans – of all barcodes entering their stores).
