“Barcode Registration” means that you can register your barcode number and product/company details on the International Barcodes Database (information that you submit to that database also filters through to several other online barcode databases).
Add the quantity you require to the cart, and then proceed to check out. Please enter your barcode number(s) in the “additional information” section when you get to the check out page.
Once we receive your order for Barcode Registration we will email you to request proof of ownership (so that we can verify that you are the owner of that barcode number). We will then activate your barcode number for registration and give you instructions for how to register your barcode.
Please note that Barcode Registration is included for free if you buy one of our EAN or UPC barcode packages or barcode numbers.

Advantages of Barcode Registration
Barcode registration is a completely optional service that we can provide. The benefits of barcode registration are below:
- Barcode registration makes it easier for some cell phone scanner apps (e.g. the Zebra app) to link your barcode to your product information when your barcode is scanned. Click here for more information on barcode scanning apps.
- Barcode registration improves the presence of your product on the internet. If your barcode number is searched in Google (or another search engine), your product information will appear in the results.
- When your barcode is registered on international online databases it discourages others from using your number illegally on websites (eg. on Amazon). If people know – from a quick online search – that your barcode is being used and that it is visibly linked to a particular company/product, they are less likely to choose to take that barcode number and use it illegally themselves. We stress that it is illegal to use (without authorisation) any barcode number that belongs to another person or company. However it is frustrating when illegal barcode use happens, and can be a hassle to sort out. Barcode registration protects against this risk. Barcode registration helps to reduce the risk of this happening in the first place.
Barcode registration is included with our barcode packages. Hence this option is for barcodes from another provider or barcodes not purchased in a package through us.
