How does it work?


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.

Check here how you determine how many codes you need When do I have to create a GTIN?



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.

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?

Are GS1 codes the only globally verified and certified product codes?


There are companies that sell individual barcodes or GTINs (or EAN codes). This may seem like a good deal, but only GS1 can offer you all the benefits of official product codes. GS1 is also the one and only issuer of standardised GTINs and barcodes worldwide, so you can sell your products anywhere you want. If you use unofficial barcodes, and this causes problems later on (e.g. because it turns out that the code is not unique), GS1 won’t be able to help you. 

So beware of "pirate" barcode resellers!
