FAQ

At Buy Barcodes India, we understand that the world of barcodes can be complex. That's why we've curated this comprehensive FAQ page to address your queries and guide you through the process seamlessly.

What is a Barcode?

A barcode is an optical representation of data that is used for automatic identification and tracking of products, assets, or entities. It consists of a series of parallel lines and spaces of varying widths that can be scanned and decoded using a barcode reader or scanner. However they are mostly seen on retail products for pulling up price and product information at the checkout. In this case the barcode is simply a 12 or 13 digit number encoded as an image.

What Barcodes are Supplied by You?

At Buy Barcodes India, we supply:

EAN (European Article Number): Widely used globally including in India for product identification for both retail and e-commerce.

UPC (Universal Product Code): Commonly used in retail for product identification, particularly in North America.

Where do your barcodes come from?

The barcodes provided by Buy Barcodes India come from valid and registered barcode prefixes obtained through authorised sources. We work with reputable barcode resellers and service providers who have acquired prefix allocations from the GS1 (Global Standards One) organisation.

Can I get a refund if I change my mind or no longer need the barcodes?

Unfortunately, due to the nature of the digital product and its unique assignment, we cannot offer refunds once the barcode purchase is completed. We encourage you to review your order carefully before making the purchase.

Are there any recurring fees or additional costs for the barcodes?

No, there are no recurring fees or additional costs associated with the barcodes purchased from Buy Barcodes India. The one-time payment you make at the time of purchase covers the cost of the barcodes, and you will not be charged any further fees.

Absolutely! The barcodes we provide are globally recognized and can be used internationally. They comply with industry standards and are accepted by retailers, e-commerce platforms, and other distribution channels worldwide.

Will all retailers accept your barcodes?

No, there are some retailers in some countries who only accept barcodes bought directly from GS1. Retailers are able to choose their own requirements for barcodes whether or not they make sense. In India, stores like Reliance and D-mart require you to register with GS1 in order for them to accept your product. These requirements are also subject to change. However we have sold thousands of barcodes worldwide and are confident that apart from the stores mentioned above, stores will accept our barcode numbers. However, please check with your individual retailer(s) if you are unsure of their barcoding policy.
