A GS1 Company Prefix comes in five different “capacities” that allow you to barcode as few as 10 unique products and as many as 100,000 unique products.
Selecting the correct prefix capacity makes a difference to your business. Most of our member companies select prefixes that have a larger capacity than what they need at the present moment. Why? These companies are planning for their future growth. More products and variations means more GTINs/barcodes
You cannot exchange your GS1 Company Prefix for a new one or add additional capacity to a prefix once you get one. However, you can always come back to get another prefix. Keep in mind, having all of your products associated with one prefix number might be easier for your company to manage and may be less expensive.
Our pricing schedule is based on the number of unique products that you need to identify. Your initial fee provides the prefix to you for one year. After that, you’ll pay the annual renewal fee to continue using the GS1 US-issued company prefix for your barcodes and product identification.
