UPC Barcode

What is a UPC Barcode?

UPC Barcodes are very similar to EAN-13 barcodes. There are a few differences, namely that UPC barcodes have 12 digits and the distribution of the numbers below the barcode are slightly different. The most important difference is that UPC Barcodes are used in the USA and Canada, whereas EAN-13 barcodes are used everywhere else. Books and magazines are the only types of products that don’t use EAN-13 or UPC-A Barcodes. The differences between EAN-13 and UPC-A Barcodes can be see here.
