Why should I purchase from Bar Codes Talk instead of directly from GS1?

There's only two ways to legally acquire the use of a GTIN. You can rent it from GS1 nowadays or own it outright from a legitimate reseller like ourselves due to the GS1/UCC class action lawsuit settlement in 2002. Our inventory of GTIN bar code numbers/prefixes originate from GS1US (Previously called the UCC "Uniform Code Council") before 2002, this is how you can legally own them instead of being forced by GS1 into renting them at high initial costs + annual fees. 


Each UPC/EAN (GTIN) that we provide is globally unique, never used, and are only issued once. 


We’re able to sell them to you in whatever denomination you need, whereas GS1 groups them in 10's, 100's, 1,000's and so on, making sure you pay ever increasing cost & annual fees when you need more codes.

We've been in the bar code business for over 20 years, sold over 100 million (and counting) unique UPC & EAN numbers to over 150,000 companies worldwide!.
