In Belgium and Luxembourg, the e-commerce market was worth nearly €14 billion in 2021. With 80% of Belgians having already bought online, it would be unthinkable today not to seize this business opportunity. Whether via your own webshop or via one of the many marketplaces out there, such as Bol.com, Amazon, Google, Veepee, etc., what are you waiting for?
1. DEFINE how many product codes you need
Before creating a barcode, you first need to determine how many product codes (GTIN/EAN) you will need. Be sure to think long term about this, as your range can always be expanded.
2. REGISTER on My GS1
As soon as you have determined how many product codes you will need, you can take out an annual subscription to a code package. Indicate how many codes you need and fill in the necessary company information. We will then provide your unique company prefix that is required for all GS1 codes! Your product codes will always start with this company prefix.
3. CREATE your GTINs
Now that you have a company prefix and an account, you can start creating GTINs and barcodes. With My Product Manager you can create your GTIN in a few steps.
GS1, your online sales partner!
It all starts with the unique identification of your products with a GTIN/EAN code. That’s all it takes to sell online! But GS1 can also help you to exchange data and images in a standardised way with your trading partners. So what standards should be used?
GS1 is recognised as the one and only issuer of product codes for online sales and marketplaces. But how does it work?
Share product data in real time
In addition to product identification, online selling calls for a whole lot of data. With GS1, find the right solutions to share your product data in real time with all your (online) retailers.
Generate compliant product images
A good online product is a product with an image. Can you imagine buying without one? GS1 helps you display your product images so that they are compliant and usable on all digital platforms.
