Buy World Barcodes


Which type of retail barcode do I need if I’m selling my product internationally?

EAN barcodes are the best type of barcode to use if you’re selling your product in multiple countries worldwide.

World Barcodes are EAN Format Barcodes (also called EAN-13 barcodes).

If you’re not sure which kind of barcode you need for your product, our quick rule of thumb is as follows:

Selling your product in the USA or Canada only = UPC-A

Selling your product in any other country (or in multiple countries) = EAN-13

How many barcodes do I need?

Buy Barcodes You need a different barcode number for each different retail product and product variation (e.g. size or colour). For example, if you are selling a t-shirt in 3 different colours and 3 different sizes, then you would need 9 barcode numbers.


How to use your barcodes on your retail products:

  1. When you receive your barcodes by email, you can choose which barcode number to assign to which product.
  2. Apply the barcode image to your product label or packaging. You can resize the barcode image, but make sure it is at least 20mm high x 30mm wide (this is the minimum recommended size).
  3. Give your retailer a list of your barcode numbers & the product details associated with them (including the price). Your retailer may ask you to complete some product information forms.
  4. Your retailer will connect the barcode number & product details together in their inventory system. After that, when your barcode is scanned the correct product details and price will appear on the retailer’s system.
  5. You may also want to register your barcode on International Barcodes Database and also on IBNREG (International Barcodes Network Registry). This is optional but increases the profile of your products on the internet. Instructions for how to register your barcodes will be in your barcode order email.
