Amazon Brand Registry
From March, 2018, Amazon Brand Registry program requires renting/licensing GTIN’s directly from GS1 for new listings, or obtaining a GTIN exemption for new listings. This small seller group is forced to rent codes annually from GS1 directly. This is likely due to Amazon joining GS1’s Management board in 2016. As a result, if you have Amazon Brand Registry, our codes will likely not work for your brand. You can purchase a GS1 prefix directly from the GS1 or purchase individual GTIN’s there.
You may opt out of any future contact from us by emailing us your order number and stating that you want to opt out of all future contact.
Payments & Refund Policy
We accept various forms of payments. We do offer refunds, however, there will be a 50% restocking fee for issues outside of our control due to the time and money it takes to issue and reissue codes. Most other companies do not offer refunds due to the nature of how codes are issued. A 50% fee will cover our expenses to issue and reissue codes.
