What is a Bar Code?
A barcode (or bar code) is a unique sequence of digits that is used to identify an item or product. Most barcodes on retail products are in either EAN (13 digit) or UPC (12 digit) format. A barcode number can be turned into a barcode image (vertical black bars). When a barcode images is scanned at a checkout counter, product information will appear on the checkout screen.
What is a UPC Code?
Universal Product Code (UPC) is a 12-digit bar code used extensively for retail packaging in United States.
Although there are several different types of bar codes, the UPC symbol appears on nearly every retail product in the United States, making it the most versatile and recognizable type of product code in this part of the world. It consists of a bar code with a GTIN-12 number beneath. (Click Here to Get GS1 UPC Codes )
What is a GTIN-12? How Many Numbers are in a UPC Code?
GTIN stands for Global Trade Identification Number, the coding structure that identifies a product. The GTIN-12 of a product is the unique 12 digit code shown beneath the bar code.
The data encoded inside a UPC barcode is known as the GTIN-12. GS1 is the global identification standards organization who created the Global Trade Item Number (GTIN) data structures. GTIN-12 is used to represent UPC barcodes in the United States. As referenced below, the GTIN-12 is an identifier consisting three components.
What’s the Difference Between UPC and EAN?
UPC’s are the most commonly used bar codes in the United States. EAN’s (European Article Number) are used internationally. Nowadays, most places will accept both product UPC codes and EAN codes, although if you are planning on selling your products outside of the United States, an EAN code might be best for you. EAN format bar codes contain 13 digits, leading with a “0” in front of the standard GTIN-12 digit UPC code. Both bar codes, however, are identical.
