Note – Barcode registration is included with all of the barcode numbers we sell. You should only purchase barcode registration if you have a barcode through another provider that you wish to register.
If you purchase Registration you will be able to register your barcode number and product information on the International Barcodes Database (information registered on that database filters through to several other major online databases as well). Please enter your barcode number(s) in the “additional information” section on the checkout page. Once we receive your order we will email you to request proof of ownership (so that we can verify that you are the owner of your barcode number). We will then activate your barcode number for registration, and provide with instructions for how to register your barcode number (please note that Registration is included for free if you purchase one of our Barcode Packages).

What is Barcode Registration?
Barcode registration is an optional service that we offer to generally increase the internet profile of your product. This service is completely optional and is not required for any barcode numbers as there is no central database for barcodes, however, there are several advantages to registering your barcodes online.
Barcode registration is included free with our barcode packages, hence, this should only be purchased if you have acquired a barcode outside of a barcode package.
- Barcode registration helps with some cell phone app scanners (such as the Zebra app) so that when the product barcode is scanned the product information will appear.
- Barcode registration will increase the internet profile of the product so that when the barcode is searched for on Google or another search engine the product information will appear.
- If a barcode is registered on internet databases, it can dissuade people from using the barcode number illegally on sites like Amazon. If a quick internet search tells the person that that barcode number is in use they will be much less likely to use the barcode. While people cannot legally use legitimately sold barcode numbers, if they are being used illegally it is an extra hassle for the legal owner of the barcode number to follow this up. This can be easily avoided with barcode registration.
NOTE we will require proof of your ownership of the barcode number – this is to demonstrate that the barcode number you wish to register actually belongs to you. Please email us proof of ownership after you place your order.
Once we receive your order, we will contact you regarding registering your barcode number. This will normally take 2-24 hours, depending on the time of day/week that you make the order. Our normal office hours are 7am-7pm Mon-Fri (NZ time), plus we process some orders on Saturday whenever possible.
