The Barcode Shop
Recently we have had questions from customers regarding The Barcode Shop. The Barcode Shop website has cropped up in various countries. It claims to sell barcode numbers with individual country prefixes for a one-off cost. They do not have the permission of GS1 in any of these countries. They are not legally selling these barcode numbers.
It is currently unclear as to what will happen to this company in the future. However, The Barcode Shop are under investigation by The Advertising Standards Authority. Hence they are unlikely to remain open for very long.
If you require barcode numbers with your genuine company prefix, the only way to acquire these through GS1 in your country. No barcode reseller can supply these legally. Fortunately, very few retailers actually require a company prefix. Barcode numbers with a US Country code (07) can be purchased through us. Please click here to order barcodes here.
