GS1 US Data Hub Help Center

Export Product and GTIN Data

You can export the products managed by your company:

1. Click the Product link from the top navigation bar.

The My Products screen displays, listing all products created for your company in GS1 US Data Hub. This list includes products for all GS1 Company Prefixes to which your company has licensed.

2. The Export All Products button is enabled, and the Export Selected Products button is grayed out until you check a box for one or more products. 

Product Export Buttons

You have three export options:

Check the box for each product you want to export. After you have selected the individual products, click Export Selected Products.

Use the filtering tools to limit the number of records you want to import. For example, you may want to export only In Use products. After you filter the products, click Export All Products. Only the filtered products are exported. For the date field, you can enter a specific date to display just the products modified on that day.

Click the Export All Products button. All products will be exported, including those in the Draft, PreMarket, In Use and Archived status.

Please note that the maximum number of products you can export at one time is 100,000. If your company has more than 100,000 records, use the filters to display less than 100,000 records. You can then run additional instances to export the remaining data.

3. Click “Yes” when the Export Products dialog box displays. The message "Export Request Successfully Submitted. Click the Export icon for file progress and results." displays in a green window.

4. Click the Export Center Icon  on the upper right corner of the screen. The Export Center page displays, with the most recent export displayed at the top. The Export Center also displays any other product and location export instances requested by all of your company users. 

Note: The XLSX files are removed after 30 days. When these files are removed, the product data stored in GS1 US Data Hub is not impacted.

5. Click the file link to open the XLSX file. How this file displays will vary depending on your Web browser. When you open the XLSX file, you'll see that products are sorted numerically, in order of GS1 Company Prefix, then GTIN.

Note: Any products in the Draft status are listed first because the GS1 Prefix and GTIN cells are blank. To learn the definitions of the values within the XLSX file, view the Product Import User Guide, Appendix A.

A. No, each barcode image must be downloaded individually. When you export product data, the barcode image files (artwork) are not included.

To download the barcode image, view the product detail record (in the PreMarket or In Use status), then click the View Barcode button, then click the Preview Barcode button.

PreMarket products will show a barcode symbol image with the watermark “FPO” (For Placement Only). This is not the final barcode. The product detail record must be set to In Use before the final barcode symbol can be created for download.

A. Yes, click Import Products, then the Download Template tab. Under Download an Assigned GTINs Template, select the GS1 Company Prefix and the total number of available GTINs for this prefix (the number of available GTINs is listed next to the prefix). Then click Download Template. The available GTINs are listed in the spreadsheet.

View the Import Products and Assign Available GTINs article to learn more.

A. This date represents the last time that this product detail record was modified by a user in GS1 US Data Hub.
