Top Retailers Require GS1 US Barcodes

Listing your products online? You need a reliable barcode from GS1 US.

To sell on major online marketplaces you need an authentic barcode. GS1 is the global authority for the barcodes.

  • While you don't scan a barcode during online checkout like you would at a cash register, you will still use the number sequence under the barcode (also known as a GTIN) that uniquely identifies the product. 
  • The best part about GS1 barcodes is that they are accepted all over the world. 
  • The barcode you need for your product on one retailer’s website is the same barcode you'll need to list your product on another retailer’s website and in retail stores.

Retailers often 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!

Why you should choose GS1 US over the other options:

GS1 Barcodes give you better search results! Barcodes with good product data help search engines like Google and Bing link your product to their product catalog and with what users are searching.
