Barcodes New Zealand is the best independent source for barcode numbers in New Zealand and Australia. As an independent company, we don’t charge any annual license fees – you can buy barcodes for a one-off price. If you need them, we can also provide barcode verification reports – and consequently, a larger number of retailers accept our barcodes than those from another barcode vendor in Australasia.

Our barcodes are EAN-13 format codes and are therefore ideal for use on any retail product. You can use our barcodes in New Zealand, Australia, and worldwide. Our team has many years of experience and can offer excellent advice about barcodes, so please contact us if you have any questions!

Barcodes New Zealand was formed in 2007 because we struggled to find an affordable barcode for an original item created through one of our other companies. We were informed that we had to become members of an international barcode organisation, pay their expensive ‘membership’ fees annually, and purchase many barcodes. We couldn’t afford to do that.

We soon found out that many other businesses in New Zealand were facing the same challenges. That is why we decided to form Barcodes New Zealand – to help other people and businesses in NZ get affordable and legal barcodes for their products.

As a client of Barcodes New Zealand, you score:

Barcodes you can afford

The price of one barcode (including an authentication certificate and images) is $59. The price drops if you purchase more barcodes.

EAN-13 Barcode Numbers

The barcodes we supply are in EAN-13 format (the standard barcode format for retail products in New Zealand and most of the world). We can also supply UPC-A format (American format) codes if preferred.

Barcode Verification Service

Some retailers require barcode verification (an official test scan of your final printed barcode). As a client of ours, the verification reports you can get are performed on the latest verification equipment following internationally accepted barcode standards.

Quick Delivery of Barcodes

Our automated barcode system now delivers EAN13 barcodes instantly (including CD, DVD & Amazon barcodes). Other barcode orders are processed manually within a few hours of receiving them. In addition, all barcode orders are checked manually to ensure accuracy.

Excellent Customer Support
