Our EAN-13 and UPC barcodes come with FREE barcode registration on International Barcodes Database and also on IBNREG (International Barcodes Network Registry). This allows you to register your product and/or company details in an online database. This database auto-feeds this information to other online databases.
Barcode registration makes it easier for retailers and customers to find your company & product information through searching online for the barcode number, or with a barcode scanning app. It also helps prevent theft or accidental misuse of your barcodes. And it also helps those few reluctant retailers who still think GS1’s database has all the answers. Retailers can see in an independent database that your barcodes are registered. This gives proof that the barcodes are yours, valid and legitimate. This can save a lot of wasted time and unnecessary frustration with some retailers.
It is easy to copy a barcode on a different product. Registration helps protect against illegal use of your barcode numbers. It also helps retailers and customers find the details of your product and business.
How to register your barcode numbers:
We email the barcodes to you. Included in the email is registration instructions. You can then register your barcode numbers and product/company details on the International Barcodes Database https://barcodesdatabase.org/barcode-registration/ (your company name and barcode numbers will be automatically registered already on the IBNREG.org database). Barcode registration on the International Barcodes Database is optional. However, it will increase the profile of your product on the internet.
After you register on the International Barcodes Database, your product details will the show when customers search for your barcode number online search engines (e.g. Google) or on some smart-phone apps (e.g. the Zebra app). Some smart-phone barcode apps only search in online stores such as Amazon.com. They don’t search in the online barcode databases. This is limiting. The best smartphone barcode apps (e.g. the Zebra app) search in Amazon and other online stores as well as the main online barcode databases.
Note: Barcode registration is FREE if you buy barcodes from our company. If you have barcodes already (which weren’t issued by our company), and you want to register those numbers, then please purchase barcode registration here: https://internationalbarcodes.com/barcode-registration/.
