Should I get a UPC or EAN barcode?
Selling internationally = EAN-13
Selling in the USA = UPC-A
If you are selling your product in several different countries, including the USA, it is your choice whether to get a barcode in EAN-13 format or UPC-12 format. Most barcode scanners can read both EAN and UPC barcodes, so if you want to use the same barcode on your product regardless of which country it is in, that is fine. It is perfectly acceptable to use an EAN (European standard) barcode within the USA or a UPC barcode outside of the USA.
Using your barcode
You will receive your unique EAN-13 or UPC-12 barcode number by email, along with a guarantee certificate (for proof of ownership) and your barcode images.
The barcode images will be sent in 4 different files (jpeg, png, SVG & pdf). The size of the images will be about 38 mm x 25 mm (standard barcode size). You can resize the barcode. Do note, the smallest recommended size is 80% of standard size, approximately 30 mm x 20 mm.
You can put your barcode onto your product label or packaging and start using it immediately. Your barcode will be a blank number (it will not contain any product or company details). After you give your product to your retailer, they will scan the barcode & type the product information into their system – this will connect your barcode to your product. After that, when they scan your barcode, the product name & details will appear on their checkout screen.
How many barcodes do I need?
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. price of the product when scanned at the checkout.
2. inventory management and reorder level for 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, 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 will not stock products if they have to manually count how many are left of each size and reorder accordingly. Therefore we recommend that you have a different barcode for each variation.
Will Your Barcodes Work Worldwide?
Yes, they will. We can supply both EAN-13 Barcodes (used worldwide) and UPC-A Barcodes (the USA and Canada).
