How many Barcode Numbers will I need?
How do I assign my product information to the Barcode Number?
When you supply your product to a retailer, you will be required to complete a product information form which links your product and company details to that product’s unique barcode number. The store will transfer this information into their sales and inventory systems allowing your product to be scanned at point of sale and monitored by stock tracking software.

Why buy from Barcode Savers India instead of GS1?
Our barcodes originate with the Unifom Code Council (now GS1) but incur no additional fees, subscription charges or hidden costs of any kind.
Will my barcode be unique to my product?
Is any information stored or encoded in my barcode?
Can I adjust the size and dimentions of my barcode?
Yes. Our barcodes are supplied at 100% GS1 specification size (37.29mm x 25.93) however we are able to resize your codes upon request at no extra charge to your order. Generally GS1 advises a minimum of 80% of the standard size however our customers have had success with smaller sizes.
Most Omni-directional scanners read barcodes from several angles. This means that if the code is truncated only one out of three scans will detect the code. Imagine two diagonal lines and one straight line reading the code, the straight line will read the code in full and the diagonal ones will miss because they cannot see the entire code. This is why GS1 recommends only an 80% magnification of the original size (37.29mm x 25.93). Therefore truncated barcodes can scan, but not always the first try which can become a hassle for your retailers.
Will my barcodes ever expire?
Do you charge any annual license fees?
