NO ANNUAL FEES – All our barcodes are available for one-off prices. We will never charge you annual fees (or any other future fees).

AFFORDABLE – Our barcodes are very reasonably priced for small businesses and individuals. We also offer discounts on larger orders.

We understand the Australian market, including the requirements of different companies in Australia. We listen to our Australian customers and understand what is required.

Our barcodes are used worldwide. Because our barcodes are in EAN-13 format (European Standard), they are suitable for use in Australia and every country in the world (note: We can also supply barcodes in UPC format if requested).

INTERNATIONAL BARCODES NETWORK – We are part of a network of international barcode suppliers. Members focus on supplying barcodes within a specific country, so they can best understand the specific barcoding requirements. They can also provide prompt local-language advice and service. Members have access to resources to help ensure that more retailers in each country accept their barcodes. This means that barcodes purchased from our network are accepted by more retailers internationally than any other barcode reseller. Visit International Barcodes Network here.


BARCODE REGISTRATION – We include barcode and product registration as an additional optional service. Most other barcode resellers do not provide this. Barcode registration will increase the profile of your product on the internet in addition to reducing the chance of illegal barcode use.

CHECKING OF BARCODE NUMBERS –  There is some illegal use of barcode numbers on the internet. Because of this, we check all our barcode numbers before issuing them to our customers. After that we know they are good for use.

VERIFICATION REPORTS – We are the only barcode reseller in the world offering independently accredited barcode verification reports. Some retailers require verification for all products entering their stores. A verification is a test scan of a barcode on its final packaging or label using a specialised machine called a “barcode verifier”. The barcode is then graded (a passing grade is A, B, C or D). The grade indicates how easily it can be decoded by checkout scanners

BARCODE IMAGES – Our company can supply high-quality barcode images (600dpi). We supply the images in several formats. If you require higher resolution images let us know(up to 2540dpi). We can customize the barcode size to suit your packaging requirements. Similarily, we can add text above or below the barcode if required (e.g. the product or company name).

CUSTOMER COMMITMENT– Our business works because our customers are happy nce return to buy more or recommend us to others. We provide top quality service, advice, and ongoing support. Some of our clients have been with us for many years, for instance fiftteen years.

FRIENDLY CUSTOMER SERVICE – We provide a friendly service and will try to help you in any way we can.

CONTACT – We are easy to contact. You can get in touch by live chat, email or phone and we will respond ASAP.

CHARITABLE – A charity owns our business. Therefore all proceeds go to charitable purposes (Better World Initative)
