We provide both EAN and UPC Barcodes.
An EAN-13 barcode (originally “European Article Number”, but now renamed “International Article Number” ) is a 13 digit (12 + check digit) barcoding standard which is a superset of the original 12-digit Universal Product Code (UPC/EAN) system developed in the United States.
If you are NOT selling your product(s) in the United States or Canada and strictly out of these countries, you should use the EAN barcode. A UPC — or Universal Product Code — can be read in all countries that have adopted the EAN code plus the United States and Canada.
UPC stands for Universal Product Code., It’s a 12 digit number that is associated to your product.
