Barcode Company Prefix

Some manufacturers want a barcode company prefix for their barcodes.

There are only two sure ways to get a company prefix like this. You can join GS1 (& pay their joining fee and annual fees for the rest of your product life), or you can purchase barcodes from us in blocks of 10, 100, 1000 or 10,000. We are the ONLY barcode seller that we know of that provides unique company prefixes like this.

If you purchase 1 number, you will not be supplied with a company prefix (no barcode company supplies this).

However, if you purchase barcodes in lots of 10, 100, 1000, etc., they will have a unique company prefix. The length of the company prefix depends upon how many variations are required to make a total of 13 digits.

For example;

if you purchase 10, then of the 13 digits, the first 11 will be your company prefix, the 12th digit will vary from 0-9 (giving you ten different barcodes), and the last digit is a calculated checksum.

Similarly, if you purchase 20, you will get two company prefixes (giving ten barcodes for each).

If you purchase 100, then of the 13 digits, the first ten will be your company prefix, the 11th & 12th digits will vary from 00-99 (giving you 100 different barcode numbers), and the last digit is a calculated checksum.
