As it is known, you need EAN barcodes for your release on TuneCore. You will need a different barcode for each release.
First of All, What is a Barcode?
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 UPC (12 digit) or EAN (13 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 an EAN Code?
The European Article Number (EAN) is a barcode standard, a 12- or 13-digit product identification code. Each EAN uniquely identifies the product, manufacturer, and its attributes; typically, the EAN is printed on a product label or packaging as a bar code.
An EAN code is a unique combination of figures used to identify an object on the basis of a European system (‘EAN’ stands for ‘European Article Numbering’). (Click Here to Get GS1 EAN Codes)
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.
