Do you need barcode to sell on Amazon?
The short answer is, no. UPCs are common, but not required for every single product sold. If you do not have a UPC affiliated with your product or brand, it is required by Amazon to have an Amazon barcode or FNSKU affixed to your product packaging when using FBA.
How do I generate a UPC code?
A typical process of obtaining a 12-digit UPC number is as follows:
- License a unique Company Prefix from your local GS1 office.
- Assign product number(s) to unique products making your number equal 11 digits.
- Using a check digit calculator with your 11 digit number, generate your check digit.
Can you create barcodes in Word?
Word no longer has a built-in barcode tool. However you can generate barcodes using two field codes, DisplayBarcode and MergeBarcode.
Who owns a barcode?
This means that each product has its own unique barcode. Where a barcode is obtained from GS1, it is held under the terms of a licence. Therefore, the company using the barcode is not itself the owner of the barcode, but instead a licensee. The barcode can only be used in accordance with the licence.
Do I have to pay for barcodes?
You won’t get your own Company Prefix number, but you will get a unique Universal Product Code for each barcode. Resellers usually charge about $20 or so per barcode (some charge more and some charge less). So, if you need 20 barcodes, for example, it makes more sense to use a reseller.
