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:
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.
Selling in the USA = UPC-A
