Select Your Quantity

Each Different Product You Sell Requires Its Own Barcode. For Example, If You Sell A T-Shirt That Comes In One Color And 3 Different Sizes You Would Need To Buy 3 Barcodes. If The T-Shirt Comes In 2 Sizes And 3 Colors You Would Need 6 Barcodes. This Way, If One Of The Colors/Sizes Is Selling Faster Than The Others, The Store Can Simply Look In Their Computer And See Which One Needs To Be Replenished Without Having To Do A Manual Shelf Count. This Same Formula Applies For All Styles, Colors, Flavors, Sizes Or Any Other Variation Of Your Product. They All Need Their Own Unique Barcode.

Pay for your barcodes

After selecting your quantity you will be taken to a checkout page where you'll provide us your email address and payment details.

Assign the barcodes to your products

Assigning barcodes to your products is a simple and completely arbitrary process. You just need to stay consistent. Always keep the same barcode with the same product. We recommend using an Excel spreadsheet to keep track. After you've assigned the barcode to a product, then place the barcode image onto your product packaging. The instructions for this come with your order.

Email us your barcode/product information

If you intend to sell your products at Walmart or Amazon, it will be necessary to email us your barcode numbers, their assigned product name, and your company name. This information will then be placed directly into the GS1 database so you can sell at these stores.

  • Yes, we are the ONLY barcode seller 

    whose barcodes work on Amazon!

  • Each different product you sell requires its own barcode. For example, if you sell a t-shirt that comes in one color and 3 different sizes you would need to buy 3 barcodes. If the t-shirt comes in 2 sizes and 3 colors you would need 6 barcodes. This way, if one of the colors/sizes is selling faster than the others, the store can simply look in their computer and see which one needs to be replenished without having to do a manual shelf count. This same formula applies for all styles, colors, flavors, sizes or any other variation of your product. They all need their own unique barcode.

  • There is no information actually stored or encrypted in a barcode. When you go to sell your product at a store, that store will have you fill out a product information form. On that form is where you will put your company and product details as well as your 12-digit UPC barcode number. The store then manually enters that information into their inventory management computer. This way, when they scan your barcode at the register, it calls up that form in their system. In other words, the barcode is simply a link between your product and the product information form you fill out for each store that sells your product.

  • Yes, the barcodes we sell work for ALL aspects of Amazon. We are the ONLY barcode seller (other than GS1 and our partner whose barcodes will work for all aspects of Amazon - including Amazon Brand Registry. All of the other barcode sellers will have serious limitations on Amazon and you will not be able to register your Brand on Amazon if you purchase barcodes from them.

  • Yes, all retail products in the United States (except for magazines and books) require what is called a UPC barcode. Whether you need a barcode for your t-shirt, CD, toaster, or whatever, our barcodes will work for you.

  • No.  All of our barcode fees are one-time only and you never have to pay any renewal fees or future fees of any kind. Because we joined GS1 / U.C.C. in 1999, before they started charging renewal fees (August, 2002), we don’t have to pay renewal fees. Therefore, you don’t have to pay renewal fees.

  • Yes, your Brand and Products will be put into the GS1 Database!

  • Yes, the barcodes will work anywhere that barcodes are scanned – which is most of the modern world. This includes Canada, Australia, the UK, Europe, Asia, Mexico, South America, the Middle East, and anywhere else that they use barcodes.

  • The EAN barcode system is used outside of the U.S. and Canada and is 13 digits long. It is based upon the 12-digit UPC system with the simple addition of a single number that signifies a country code. The great thing about having a 12-digit UPC barcode is that it will work in any country in the world. Therefore, if you have a UPC barcode you do not need an EAN barcode.

  • You can contact our customer service at 888-446-2633 to access the site as a returning customer. You will be asked to provide a barcode number you previously purchased.
