Our EAN-13 and UPC barcodes come with FREE barcode registration on the International Barcodes Database and IBNREG. This allows you to register your product and/or company details alongside the barcode number in an online database. This information auto-feeds this into other online databases.
Barcode registration makes it easier for retailers and customers to find your company & product information through searching online for the barcode number or with a barcode scanning app. It also helps prevent theft or misuse of your barcodes as you have extra proof that they belong to you. And it also helps those few reluctant retailers who still think GS1’s database has all the answers. You can point them to this independent database where your barcodes are registered. This gives proof that they are yours and are valid and legitimate. It can save a lot of wasted time and unnecessary frustration with some retailers.
It is easy to copy a barcode. Anyone can see a barcode number and then duplicate that barcode on a different product. Our registration helps protect you against illegal use of your barcode numbers, and helps retailers and customers find the details of your product and business.
How to register your barcode numbers:
After purchase the barcodes will be emailed to you along with registration instructions. You can then register your barcode numbers and product/company details on the International Barcodes Database https://barcodesdatabase.org/barcode-registration/ (your company name and barcode numbers will be automatically registered already on the IBNREG.org database). Barcode registration on the International Barcodes Database is optional. However, it will increase the profile of your product on the internet.
After you register your barcode number and product details on the International Barcodes Database, your product details will be displayed when customers search for your barcode number in online search engines (e.g. Google) or smartphone apps (e.g. the Zebra app). Please note that some smart-phone barcode apps only search in online stores such as Amazon.com. Tthey don’t search in the online barcode databases. This means that their database of barcode numbers/product details are minimal. The best smartphone barcode app’s (e.g. the Zebra app) search in Amazon and other online stores and the main online barcode/product databases.
Note: Barcode registration is free if you buy EAN-13 or UPC barcodes from our company. If you have EAN-13 or UPC barcode numbers already (which weren’t issued by our company), and you want to register those numbers, then please purchase barcode registration here: https://internationalbarcodes.com/barcode-registration/.
