What is a 12 digit barcode called?
UPC-A. The UPC-A (also referred to simply as the UPC) is the standard retail “price code” barcode in the United States. UPC-A is strictly numeric; the bars can only represent the digits from 0 to 9. A UPC-A barcode contains 12 digits, along with a quiet (blank) zone on either side, and start, middle, and stop symbols.
