South African Barcode Numbers

EAN-13 barcodes are the most common type of barcodes used in South Africa. These are used on all products except for books and magazines. You may also decide to use UPC-A barcodes, however these are far more common in the USA and Canada hence, we recommend that you use these only if you are selling predominently in the USA and Canada.
