How many barcodes do I need?
You will almost certainly need barcodes in order for retailers to stock your products. Different retailers and regions have varying standards. It is important to pick the right barcode type to avoid unnecessary hassle and confusion when your goods make it to a store. Each product and variation will require its own unique barcode. For example, if you have 3 different products and each has 5 different colours, you will need 3 x 5 = 15 barcodes.
Types of Retail Barcodes
EAN-13 Barcodes / International Article Number
International Article Numbers, formerly EAN (European Article Numbers), comprise 13-digits. EAN-13 barcodes are used worldwide on all retail products, excluding books and magazines. They are the most widely used barcodes globally, except in the USA and Canada, where UPC-A (Universal Product Codes) barcodes are more common. In Australia, the EAN-13 is probably the barcode you need if you have products you wish to stock at a retail store.
Each EAN-13 is product-specific and encoded into a barcode image. This means that when the barcode is scanned into store systems, price and inventory data related to your product is recorded by the retailer. A different EAN-13 number, therefore, is required for each unique product. Click Here to purchase EAN-13 barcodes.
12-digit UPC Barcodes are used predominantly in the USA and Canada on all retail products, except for books and magazines. If you are selling in the US or Canada, you likely want to use a UPC-A code rather than an EAN-13 code. Click Here to purchase UPC-A barcodes.
