EAN barcode for retail products worldwide

Our EAN (or UPC) barcodes are suitable for use on any retail product worldwide (with the exception of books & magazines, because they require ISBN & ISSN numbers).

The barcodes we supply are in EAN-13 format – the most common barcode format worldwide (if you require your barcode in UPC-12 format instead that is absolutely fine, just let us know when making your order).

You can purchase a barcode for your product here:

email_wysiwyg: Your barcode number(s) is shown below. In this format (with the leading 0), it is an EAN13 number. It can also be used in 12 digit form without the leading 0 (UPC-A format). Some retailers have systems that prefer numbers without a leading 0. See <a href="http://www.worldbarcodes.com/upc-ean13">www.worldbarcodes.com/upc-ean13</a> for more details. We recommend that you print your barcode as supplied in EAN13 format, and let retailers decide whether they wish to incorporate the leading 0 or not. We do not need any product information from you (because your barcode will only become connected to your product via your retailer’s inventory system). When a retailer first receives your product, they either scan the barcode or type the number into their system, & also enter your product details, price, reordering info etc. After this, when they scan your barcode, your product information appears on their screen. We have supplied images for you in 5 different formats (jpg, eps, tiff, bmp, & pdf). You can choose the format you prefer & insert the barcode image into the design of your label or packaging. Note the images we have supplied are close to 100% size, but will have slightly different dimensions depending on what software is used for processing them.  Standard EAN13 barcodes are allowed to vary in size from 80% to 200%. The height and width can be varied independently (eg you could choose 80% height and 100% width). For image dimensions please see<a href="http://www.worldbarcodes.com/barcode-standards/"> http://www.worldbarcodes.com/barcode-standards/</a> .  Please ensure you leave enough margin (white space) on each side of the barcode. We recommend keeping your barcode as close to 100% size as you can. For good scanning, the barcode width is more important than the height. If you are tight for space, you can reduce the size to 80% (approximately 20mm high x 30mm wide). In practice, the height can be truncated further to say 15mm if needed. (Note - if you do this, the height will be less than the official minimum of 20mm) Your images and guarantee certificate are in a zipped file (.rar) – you will need to use a program like WinZip or WinRAR to open/view them. Winrar can be downloaded from <a title="Win-Rar" href="http://www.win-rar.com">www.win-rar.com</a>.  If you have trouble with this, please email us and we can unzip the images and email them to you. These images have been created for you using automated software. There are some limitations to the quality of the images created this way - so if you are using the pdf or eps images and find you need a better quality image, please email us and we will then create the images manually and email them to you (at no extra cost). To register your barcode & product in the major product databases on the internet, please email us a list of the following - Barcode Number * Product Name * Subtitle (if any) Description Brand / Manufacturer * Manufacturer Contact (eg website, email, phone) Unit Size or colour Image URL (URL link to jpg image) Price Currency LinkURL For further information about using your barcode, please see <a title="Using your barcode" href="http://www.worldbarcodes.com/how-to-use-your-barcode/">http://www.worldbarcodes.com/how-to-use-your-barcode/.</a> We also have a simple barcode guide in pdf format available <a title="Barcode Buyer Document" href="http://www.worldbarcodes.com/wp-content/uploads/Barcode-Buyer-Document-PDF.pdf">here</a>.

“Hi David, Just to say thank you for speedy delivery and to let you know barcodes used successfully!!”  Gabe & Grace

 

 Should I get a UPC or EAN barcode?

Within the USA, barcodes are usually in 12-digit UPC format – however outside of the USA the 13-digit EAN format is preferred.

If you plan to sell your product in the USA only, we recommend that you use a barcode in UPC-12 format. If you plan to sell your product in any other country in the world, it is best to get a barcode in EAN-13 format.

If you are selling your product in a number of 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 are able to 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 5 different files (eps, pdf, tiff, bmp & jpeg).  The size of the images will be about 38 mm x 25 mm (standard barcode size). If you need to reduce the size a bit, that is fine (the smallest recommended size is 80% of standard size, ie. about 30 mm x 20 mm).

You can put your barcode onto your product label or packaging & start using it immediately. Your barcode will just 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.

“Great service, exactly as advertised. Was very impressed by the fast turnaround. Highly recommended if you need barcodes and don’t want to pay through the nose.” Chris L
