Do I need to register my UPC Codes?
We recommend after purchasing you register your UPC codes at the vendor you first plan to sell. For example, with Amazon, you can do so following the instructions here.
The next step in the Barcode/Product Association/Registration process for you as the barcode owner is to provide to your retailers the following: Barcode Number, Product Description, Product Price, and Company name.
Your retailers will take that information and enter it into their store’s database so that when the barcode is scanned, your product information is shown. Each retailer has their own POS and there is no central database where all the retailers pool their data.
We would also recommend entering your barcode numbers and product information into the UPC Database here.
There is no cost for this service, and it allows you to promote your products online, as well as associate your barcode numbers with your company.
