We’re a recognised supplier with Amazon Australia.
To sell your products on Amazon.com.au, you need a barcode number to use as a unique identifier for your product, and our barcode numbers are ideal for this. We have many happy customers using our barcode numbers to sell their products on international Amazon stores, including Amazon.com, Amazon.co.uk, Amazon.de etc. (for some examples, see our Products on the Amazon page ). Our barcodes can be used in online retail stores (such as Amazon, eBay, CD Baby etc.), and in physical retail stores, both in Australia & worldwide.
Amazon’s system uses 12-digit versions (UPC) without the leading 0 – both versions of the number are the same and belong to you – but Amazon tends to prefer the 12-digit version at the moment. You may be asked to submit your barcode number, dropping the lead 0.
Also, customers have advised that Amazon require their website address (URL) on the barcodes invoice, so please let us know (when you purchase barcodes or later) that you would like your website address on the invoice/receipt.
We cannot guarantee that our barcodes will be accepted by any specific retailer, including Amazon, as any retailer can impose any restrictions they choose on any products they stock, no matter how arbitrary or unreasonable those restrictions are, and restrctions can be changed at any time.
NOTE the product below is our standard barcode number, which can be used on products in retail stores and as an Amazon barcode for listing your products on Amazon. We have kept this product simple and cheap by not including the barcode images – if you are shipping the product yourself and only selling on Amazon, you don’t need to print the actual barcode on your product – you need the barcode number to enable you to list your product on Amazon. If you require the barcode images as well, please see our Barcode Packages.
“How do I use my barcode on Amazon?”
If you have products that you want to list on Amazon, you will need barcode numbers for them. Amazon requires a unique barcode number for each listing on its websites. Our EAN-13 barcode numbers are perfect for use as “Amazon Barcodes”. Amazon has confirmed that our Amazon barcode numbers are acceptable and meet their standards. We have many customers using our barcode numbers on their products. Our Amazon barcode numbers can also be used on other online shops (e.g. eBay, CD Baby or Play.com) and in normal retail stores.
Note: You will need a unique barcode number for each separate listing on Amazon. It is your choice to make separate listings for each different variation (size/colour/design) of your product or just make one general listing for your product & get your customers to specify the size/colour after ordering.
If you prefer your barcode in 12-digit UPC-A format (instead of 13-digit EAN-13 format), that is fine – just let us know when making your order – we can supply these Amazon barcode numbers as either 13-digit EAN13 barcodes or as 12-digit UPC barcodes.
After making your order, you will receive a unique EAN-13 barcode number(s) via email.
We process orders quickly (instantly for EAN-13 barcodes and carton codes).
After receiving your barcode numbers, you can begin using them immediately: assign them to your products, and then enter the barcode number into the online form when listing your products on Amazon.
Once Amazon has received your listing, they will also assign their own unique code to your product (an ASIN or Amazon Standard Identification Number).
If you are storing and dispatching the products yourself, you won’t need to put the barcode image onto your product (but you can if you wish to). However, if you are using the Amazon warehousing & dispatch arrangements, you will need to put the barcode image onto your product.
For information on how to successfully list your product with Amazon, watch our video here with a step-by-step guide on how to list products on Amazon.
Here are some common questions:
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 straightforward to manage. Some retailers may prefer not to stock products if they have to manually count how many are left of each size and reorder accordingly. Therefore it is recommended that you have a different barcode for each variation.
Selling in the USA = UPC-A
Selling internationally = EAN-13
