Confused about barcodes? So were we…

Barcodes Australia
We are here to help you, at an affordable price. We are nice people and try to be helpful – if you have any questions, please contact us. David Allis, Director


A few years ago, we were wondering how to buy a bar code for a great new product we were introducing to the market. This started our long and detailed investigation into the strange world of bar codes.

We were told we needed to join a large international barcodes organisation, and pay the joining fee and the annual fee. We would also have to buy a large number of barcodes.

We only wanted one bar code number, but that was not an option. We soon discovered other businesses were asking the same questions and experiencing the same problems.

It really shouldn’t be this difficult. So, Barcodes Limited was formed – not to make lots of money – but to help people like you get two or three bar codes quickly and easily.

Y’know – that’s pretty amazing service! I asked you a question at 5:30pm and you replied within the hour. I ordered at 6:49pm and closed down for the night. When I turned on my computer early next morning there were my bar codes! Really easy, really fast and a great price! Thanks Mate!’ – Colin

‘That’s marvellous David, thanks a lot. That was the first time I’ve needed to get a barcode graphic, had no idea how to, yet within a few minutes on google I hooked up with you and here they are for $30. Magic. I expect to need a few more over the coming months.’ – Terry K

Are you paying annual fees to GS1? You don’t have to. Look here to see the alternative.

When you buy from Barcodes Australia you get:


The cost of a single bar code number with images and guarantee certificate is only $75. The price reduces if you purchase more barcodes, e.g. 20 barcodes cost $35 each. No joining fees, no membership forms to fill in, no annual fees, no set-up charges and no ongoing costs or commitments. And the barcode is yours for life.

EAN-13 numbers

Our barcode numbers are EAN-13 format numbers (European/International Article Numbers), but if you prefer, we can provide you instead with UPC-A 12-digit numbers (Universal Product Code). All types we sell originate from GS1-US (Global Standards One), previously known as the Uniform Code Council or UCC.

A verification service

We can provide a verification report for your printed bar code. Barcode verification reports are required by some retail chains in Australia and NZ. This means that bar codes purchased from us will be accepted at a wider range of retail stores.

Instant Barcodes

We now supply EAN13 barcodes automatically within a few minutes – via our automated website. If we need to manually create any barcodes for you, our turn-around time is usually 1 to 12 hours, depending on how busy we are and the time zone difference.

Friendly and helpful customer service

We are a well respected supplier of affordable barcodes and many of our customers have returned to us time and time again. Read some of our recent customer feedback.

We are a legal company with an office in Auckland, New Zealand. Our company is owned by a charitable trust, so ALL profits are used for charitable purposes in Australia, NZ & worldwide. (We don;t just claim to give money to charity – we are OWNED by a registered charity). We provide you with a PDF guarantee certificate at no extra cost.

Ownership: it’s all yours

You will own the barcode numbers outright. They are yours for life. You can even re-use them for other products once you have stopped making your current products.

A free registration service

We offer a complementary registration service for all barcodes purchased from us. This means we will register your bar code number and product on the major international barcode/product databases.

We founded Barcodes Australia after our own dip into the world of barcodes, and although we just wanted one we were told we needed to join an international barcodes organisation, pay a joining fee and an annual fee too – and all for one barcode?

As well as your numbers you’ll get barcode images in five standard formats, all the way up to super high-res 2540dpi if you need them.
