Barcodes from GS1 Work for All Retailers
The best part about GS1 barcodes is that they are universally accepted by retailers all over the world. The barcode that you need for Amazon, is the same barcode Walmart or Target or Kroeger or the mom-and-pop down the street will need from you.
Retailers will verify the authenticity of your barcodes by checking in the GS1 Database before they allow you to sell on their site. If your company is not listed in the database as the brand owner of that barcode, your account might be suspended, or you might need to relabel your products. Both will cost you time and money!
