ITF-14 Carton Barcodes

If you need a barcode for the outer delivery carton (for your product), you can purchase one below.

An outer delivery carton barcode is called an ITF-14 Barcode (it is also sometimes called GTIN 14 or TUN). ITF-14 Carton Barcodes are 14-digits long (they are generated from the retail product’s 13-digit EAN13 barcode number).

The ITF-14 carton code is a 14 digit number that is based on your 13-digit EAN-13 retail barcode number. Please enter your EAN-13 barcode number into the “barcode number” box when you get to the checkout page – we will use it to create your ITF-14 barcode (note: if you are purchasing an EAN-13 barcode at the same time as an ITF-14 barcode, then please put “N/A” into the “barcode number” box – we will assign an EAN-13 barcode number to you, and then turn that number into your ITF-14 carton code).The ITF-14 carton code will be emailed to you in 4 formats (.jpg, .pdf, .png, .svg).

    NOTE ITF-14 barcodes are for use on cartons for shipping, not for retail sale. If your carton is being sold at retail level, you should use an EAN-13 retail barcode on the carton.

Note: ITF-14 Codes are only used for the outer shipping containers/cartons containing the retail products, they are not used on retail products themselves (all products for retail sale need EAN barcodes).

Some examples of how to use an ITF-14 barcode:

First Example:

If you want to supplytins of apricotsto retail stores in delivery boxes that contain40 tins each, and these tins are to be sold individually within the retail stores,then you will need:

1) One EAN-13 barcode (eg. ‘0123456789012’) to go onto each of the tins (retail products); and

2) One ITF-14 barcode (generated fromyour product barcode – ie. ‘10123456789019’) to be printed onto each of the delivery boxes.

Scenario Two:

If your apricot tins are to be sold in retail stores both as individual tins and as 4-pack lots, then you need to get:

1) Two EAN barcodes (one to go onto the tins that are being sold individually, and the other to go onto the 4-pack tins); and

2) Two ITF-14 carton codes (one generated from each of the EAN barcode numbers). One ITF-14 barcode would be for the delivery boxes that contained the individual tins, the other ITF-14 barcode would be printed onto the delivery boxes that contained the 4-pack lots of tins.

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.

ITF-14 Codes are 14-digit barcodes that go on the delivery containers for your retail products (they are based on the product’s EAN-13 barcode number)
