ITF-14 Carton Codes
An ITF-14 (also known as GTIN 14 or TUN) is a 14-digit code that is used on the delivery box for a retail product (it is based on the retail product’s EAN-13 barcode number).

Image for the outside of a carton containing a quantity of your retail product. The ITF-14 carton code is a 14 digit code based on your 13-digit EAN-13 retail barcode number. The ITF-14 carton code images will be emailed to you in 4 different formats (.jpg, .pdf, .png, .svg).
Please enter your EAN-13 barcode number into the “additional information” section of the checkout page – we will use it to create your ITF-14 carton code images. If you are purchasing an EAN-13 barcode at the same time as an ITF-14 carton code, then please just type “N/A” into that section.
NOTE ITF-14 barcodes are for use on cartons for shipping, not for retail sale. If your carton is being sold at retail level, you should use an EAN-13 retail barcode on the carton.

How to use your ITF-14 Carton Code:
You will receive an email containing your ITF-14 Code images in 4 different formats (jpeg, png, svg & pdf). You can then put the ITF-14 Code onto your delivery carton.
Note: ITF-14 Codes are only used for the outer shipping containers/cartons containing the retail products, they are not used on retail products themselves (all products for retail sale need EAN barcodes).
Here are some common questions:
This means that if the retailers only use barcodes for option 1, you can get away with having the same barcode for 2 product variations (i.e. different colours of the same product), however if the retailer uses barcodes for option 2 as well, then a different barcode will be required for each product variation.
In general retailers prefer to stock products that will be straight forward to manage. Some retailers may prefer not to stock products if they have to manually count how many are left of each size and reorder accordingly. Therefore is is recommended that you have a different barcode for each variation.
