When a distributor or retailer takes on your product, they enter it
into their stock control system. This ties your barcode number to
the product details, such as title, artist name, record label, catalogue
number and price.
What are Barcodes?
All bar code represent data in a machine readable form. The different
widths of bars and spaces in a bar code symbol represent different
numbers and letters which can be decoded or “scanned”
by a bar code scanner.
How are barcodes administered?
The barcode numbering system is adminstered in the UK by GS1 UK (formerly
known as 'e-centre')
I've heard there more than one type of barcode is this correct?
There are many types of barcode structures in use, the most commonly
used on media products such as CDs, DVDs and cassettes is the EAN-13
or ISBN in Europe.
Barcodes for North America or Canada use the UCC prefix at point of
sale. If you require a North America or Canada prefix you will need
to request from us a new 13-digit GTIN prefix.
