EAN-13 barcodes are acceptable (and the most common type of barcode) world wide. Only in North America are UPC-A retail barcodes more common. If you are selling in the US or Canada, then it may be best to buy a UPC Barcode – see the differences between the formats here.

Using your barcode:

Once you receive you barcode through us it is a fairly straight forward process of incorporating an image into the product packaging. From here once the barcode is printed on your product, a retailer will receive your product and scan the information (price, product name, reordering information etc) into their system. This way, every time the barcode is scanned from that point onwards, the product information will appear.

You can resize the barcode when putting it on your product packaging if you want, however you should take note of the barcode dimensions if you are intending on doing this.

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
