Using your EAN barcode:

After you receive your EAN barcodes, you can put them on to your products & begin using them immediately. We will email the EAN images to you in standard size (approx. 38 mm wide x 25 mm high) – you can resize the barcodes if necessary to fit your label or packaging. The smallest recommended size for an EAN barcode is about 30 mm wide x 20 mm high.

We don’t need any product information from you. When we receive your order, we will simply give you some NEW un-assigned EAN barcode numbers (these barcodes will not have any product information connected to them). After you receive your EAN codes you can allocate them to your products however you want to, and then give your products to your retailers. When your retailers receive your products they will enter the barcode numbers and product details into their system. After that, when one of your barcodes is scanned, the relevant product details will appear on the retailer’s computer screen.

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
