What is Barcode RegistrationBarcodes Database

Our EAN-13 and UPC barcodes include FREE barcode registration on the International Barcodes Database. 

This allows you to register your product and/or company details alongside the barcode number in this database.

Barcode registration makes it easier for retailers and customers to find your product and company information online. It also helps prevent theft or accidental misuse of your barcodes. You will have extra proof that the barcodes belong to you. And it also helps those few reluctant retailers who still think GS1’s database has all the answers. Point retailers to this independent database as proof that the barcodes are yours and are valid and legitimate.

It is easy to copy a barcode. Anyone can see a barcode number and then duplicate it on a different product. Our registration service protects you against illegal use of your barcodes. It also helps retailers and customers find the details of your product and business.

How to register your barcode numbers:

We email the barcodes to you after purchase. We include instructions on registration. You can then register your barcode numbers and product/company details on https://barcodesdatabase.org/barcode-registration/ (your company name and barcode numbers will be automatically registered already on the IBNREG.org database). Barcode registration is optional. However, it will increase the profile of your product on the internet.

After you register your product and company details, your product details will be found when customers search for your barcode number in online search engines (e.g. Google) or smartphone apps (e.g. the Zebra app). Please note that some smart-phone barcode apps only search in online stores such as Amazon.com. They don’t search online barcode databases. This means that their database of barcode numbers/product details are minimal. The best smartphone barcode app’s (e.g. the Zebra app) search in Amazon and other online stores and the main online barcode/product databases.


Note: Barcode registration is free with our barcodes. If you have barcode numbers issued elsewhere, and you want to register them, then please purchase Barcode Registration.
