Frequently asked questions

do i need a barcode?
Most retailers require

Most retailers only accept products which are barcoded to utilize their electronic inventory tracking systems. Also many distributors use barcodes in their warehouse systems. A barcode is simply a series of black stripes that have different widths and spacing that are grouped together and used to uniquely identify items.  A scanner then translates the unique 12-digit code into information that is passed on to a computer.

how many do i need?
one for each itemI

You will need a different barcode for each product and also for each variety of the same product.  In other words, you will need one authentic barcode for each size and for each color, etc.  For example if you are selling one T-shirt style, and it comes in two colors, you need 2 barcodes.  If you also sell the T-shirt in 3 sizes, you will need 6 barcodes.  

are they accepted by all companies?
most companies accept 

As of today, nearly all retailers – including Amazon – will accept barcodes purchased from us. A very few larger retailers (Macys, Walmart, Krogers, Sears)  require you to pay a membership fee to become a member of the GS1 and have a barcode issued in your company name.  If you are selling to these few large companies immediately, you must spend that money.  You can always buy our authentic barcodes now and join the GS1 later on when you are ready to sell to these few large companies.

are they official and legal?
we are authenticated 

Our company is authenticated as a registered reseller by  The Authenticated UPC Registration Directory.  The inventor of barcodes, George Laurer, is committed to maintaining the integrity of his barcode system and created this list to assure buyers of the legitimacy of authentic barcodes . We have a legal right to sell numbers and are listed on his site as authenticated.  On his personal site he also lists the many companies that do not meet the criteria for legitimacy.
