EAN-13 Barcode Packages
EAN-13 barcodes are used on all retail products, except for books and magazines. These are used internationally as the most common type of barcode, except for in the USA and Canada, where UPC barcodes are more common. If you are primarily selling your products in the USA or Canada, you may wish to consider buying a UPC Barcode instead.

Using your barcode:
Once you have your barcode, the next step is to incorporate the barcode into your product packaging. It needs to be incorporated in an easily visible flat location. You can also change the size at this stage if you want (or ask us when buying the barcode). However, you shouldn’t reduce the overall size below 30X20mm if it can be avoided. See barcode dimensions for more details.
No product information is needed for us to assign you the barcode. This is all done at the retailer’s end, receiving your product and scanning the barcode into their system. We will request information for barcode registration when we send you your barcode. This is an optional additional service we offer to increase the internet profile of your product.
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
