Buy barcodes

Buy EAN BARCODE NUMBERSThe barcode numbers we supply are in EAN-13 format (the standard format for NZ). We can also supply UPC-A barcodes (American format) if preferred.

WORLDWIDE – Our barcodes can be used worldwide: We have customers using our barcodes not only in NZ but also in Australia, the Pacific Islands, the UK, Europe, the USA, Asia, India, Africa, the Middle East etc – actually we have customers in over 100 countries worldwide, all using our barcodes without any problems – so you can buy barcodes here happily.

NO FORMS OR FEES – We won’t make you fill in any complicated forms! Buying a barcode from us is easy – you can just buy the barcode directly from our website & receive it by email. We don’t charge any joining fees – all our barcodes are available for one-off prices. We will never charge you any annual or other on-going fees.

AFFORDABLE – Buy one barcode (with images & a guarantee) for only $59. Prices reduce if you buy more barcodes at the same time.

LEGAL – Our company is a registered NZ company (“Barcodes Limited”) with an office in Auckland. You can view our company details on the NZ Companies Website here, or have a look at our Certificate of Incorporation.

GUARANTEED – All of our barcodes originally came from the GS1 system. Therefore we can guarantee that you will be the legal owner of your barcode numbers & that they will be unique worldwide.

NEW ZEALAND – We have been selling barcodes in New Zealand for many years and understand the specific barcoding requirements very well. We are an NZ company – not an overseas company pretending to be in NZ.

INTERNATIONAL BARCODES NETWORK – Part of a network of international barcode suppliers. Members focus on supplying barcodes within a specific country, so they are best able to understand the specific barcoding requirements in that country and provide prompt local-language barcoding advice and service. Members have access to resources to help ensure that their barcodes are accepted by more retailers in each country. This means that barcodes purchased from our members are accepted by more retailers internationally than any other barcode reseller. Visit International Barcodes Network here.

BARCODE VERIFICATION – We can provide barcode verification reports for your barcodes, tested to internationally accepted standards.

CHECKING OF BARCODE NUMBERS – We check all our barcode numbers for illegal use on the internet (e.g. on the Amazon sites) before issuing them to our customers.

BARCODE IMAGES – We can provide barcode images for your barcode numbers. We will customise the image size & resolution (up to 2540dpi) if requested.

FAST SERVICE – Buy barcodes online, and our automated system sends out the EAN13 barcode numbers (or UPC-A barcode numbers) & images instantly. Other orders are processed manually, usually within a few hours (or by the following morning at the latest).

CUSTOMER COMMITMENT– We offer excellent customer support (read some of our customer feedback).

CONTACT – We are easy to contact, and we respond quickly to all enquiries and questions.

ACCURATE INFORMATION – We will give you the truth. If we can’t help you, we will let you know!

BARCODE REGISTRATION – We provide barcode & product registration free with our barcode packages, or as an extra paid service for Book and magazine and other barcodes if you want it.

CHARITABLE – Our company is owned by a Charity (Better World Initiative), therefore when you buy barcodes from us, ALL profits go towards charitable purposes.
