The Benefits of Our Barcodes
What are the benefits of our barcodes is an easy question for us to answer. We know our barcode numbers work. Our barcode images are good quality. We check our barcodes for illegal use before we sell them to you. Our customers stay with us long-term.
Every second, one of our barcodes is being successfully scanned somewhere in the world. 100,000+ of our barcodes are in use on products worldwide. If each product is scanned an average of once per day (a very conservative estimate), then one of our barcodes is being scanned every second.

When you are spending alot of money developing your product, designing and printing the packaging, and marketing and distributing your products, it is false economy to try to save a few dollars on a barcode that might not work. Imagine the cost and effort if your barcode doesn’t scan, or isn’t accepted by a retailer.
Many other barcode sellers are either very inaccurate or completely dishonest in what they claim. See Barcode Sales Warnings for more information about companies to stay away from.

One of the biggest benefits of our barcodes is that they come with FREE barcode registration. We are the only company that offers registration. This allows you to register your product and/or company details alongside the barcode number in an online database. This database then auto-feeds this information to other online databases. In addition your products will show on a google search via our registration service. This makes it easier for retailers and customers to find your company & product information through searching online for the barcode number. It also helps prevent theft or accidental misuse of your barcode numbers. Finally registering helps those few reluctant retailers who don’t realise GS1’s database isn’t current.
It is easy to copy a barcode.. Anyone can see a barcode number and then duplicate that barcode on a different product. Our registration helps protect you against illegal use of your barcode numbers, and helps retailers and customers find the details of your product and business.
Retailer friendly company prefix. If you purchase barcodes in lots of 10 or 100 or 1000, we supply our barcodes with a genuine company prefix. The prefix can identify your company. The first digits of this number are your prefix. The remaining digits are varied to create all the barcode numbers owned by you. This makes things easier for the retailer when they are stocking lots of your products. Supermarkets and other large chains such as hardware stores tend to be the only stores that require a company prefix. Smaller retailers do not require a company prefix.
If you only have a few products, then the Company Prefix isn’t important. But if you have many products, then you can protect your products and barcode numbers by purchasing in lots of 10, 100 or 1000 in order to have a company prefix.
