The Benefits of Our Barcodes

“Why buy barcodes from you?

Every second, one of our barcodes is being successfully scanned somewhere in the world[ref] 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[/ref].

So – 6 quick benefits of our barcodes –

1. Quality You Can Trust EAN barcode for retail products

The barcodes we supply are of high quality. You can use them with confidence. We have been selling retail barcodes since 2007 and have tens of thousands of customers using more than 100,000 of our barcodes in 100+ countries. Our phone number, email address and company details are on our website, so you know who you are dealing with. We even have photos of our happy staff.
When you are spending lots of money developing your product, designing and printing the packaging, and marketing and distributing your products, it is worth getting your barcodes from a knowledgeable and trustworthy source. Imagine the cost and effort if your barcode doesn’t scan or isn’t accepted by a retailer.
Many other barcode sellers are either wildly inaccurate or utterly dishonest in what they claim. See Barcode Sales Warnings for more information about companies to stay away from.

A businessman told us that he had produced 40,000 bottles of wine, and then found the barcode didn’t work! His wife then had to unpack all of the cartons of wine and put new barcode labels on them – a huge waste of time and money.

4. Includes FREE Barcode Registration Register Products

All our barcode packages come with FREE barcode registration – this allows you to register your product and company details alongside the barcode number in an online database, which auto-feeds this information to other online databases. This makes it easier for retailers and customers to find your company & product information by searching online for the barcode number or with a barcode scanning app. It also helps prevent theft or accidental misuse of your barcode numbers. You have extra proof that they belong to you. And it also helps those few reluctant retailers who still think GS1’s database has all the answers. You can point them to this independent database as proof that they are yours and are valid and legitimate. This can save some retailers a lot of wasted time and unnecessary frustration.

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.

5. Includes Barcode Company Prefix Barcode Company Prefix

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. This barcode prefix belongs to you alone and can be used to identify your company. The first digits of this prefix are entirely yours. The remaining digits are varied to create all the barcode numbers you own. This makes things easier for the retailer when stocking lots of your products.

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 & receiving a company prefix. This also helps avoid confusion with retailers.

6. Detailed Information & Barcode Company Prefix

Other (cheap & unreliable) barcode sellers DON’T have detailed information about Barcode Acceptance Internationally, Amazon Barcodes, Retail Barcode Dimensions, Carton Barcode Dimensions, Company Prefixes, plus book barcodes, magazine barcodes, sequential barcodes, QR codes …. the list goes on.
