Our EAN (or UPC) barcodes can be used on retail products globally. If you buy your barcodes from us, you can rest assured that they will be suitable for use internationally. We have customers in over 100 countries worldwide happily using our barcodes on their products.


We want to make it affordable and easy for you to barcode your products. Our prices start at 39 USD for one barcode number (with images and a guarantee certificate). We offer reduced prices for larger orders (10 barcodes are only 29 USD each). We have many different payment options available. You can pay online via credit card or PayPal. If you want to pay in a different way, e.g. by direct bank deposit or Western Union, please send us an email.Our

Barcode Packages include:

  • A globally unique EAN-13 or UPC-A barcode number
  • high quality barcode images in 4 different formats (jpeg, png, svg & pdf)
  • A guarantee certificate
  • Free barcode registration to increase the internet profile of you product


We are able to supply barcodes in either EAN or UPC format (your choice!). The 12-digit UPC barcodes are commonly used in the United States, and the 13-digit EAN barcodes are preferred in the rest of the world. If you require your barcode in 12-digit UPC format, please let us know by email after placing your order (we usually send barcodes in 13-digit EAN barcode because this is what most of our customers require). Note: most barcode scanners are able to read barcodes in either UPC or EAN format.


Some retailers require verification of the barcodes on all products entering their stores (verification is a test-scan of the final printed barcode to see how easily it can be read by scanning machines). If your retailer requires you to get your barcodes verified, you can purchase a verification report from our company. Our verification services are performed by an independent accredited company. To our knowledge, we are the only barcode reseller able to offer barcode verification.


Do you need your barcodes urgently? We can help – our automated system delivers retail barcodes to you by email within seconds. Other orders are processed manually – usual turn around time is between 1 and 12 hours (depending on the time of day). We also process orders during the weekend to enable our customers to meet their deadlines. Send us an email if you require your barcodes ASAP.

Authentic and guaranteed

Our barcodes are authentic and legal for use because they are GS1-origin numbers that are unique worldwide. We offer a guarantee certificate with our barcodes that gives you proof of ownership.

Yours for life

If you buy from our company all you pay is a one-off cost and then you will own your barcodes for life. You will not have to pay any ongoing fees (such as renewal fees or annual membership fees).

* Some retail chains around the world require barcode verification reports. These are test-scans of your printed barcode to ensure that it scans well. We are the only barcode reseller worldwide (that we know of) that is able to obtain official independently accredited verification reports for your barcodes. Therefore, our barcodes are accepted by more retail stores worldwide than any other barcode reseller.
