Each barcode companies below will have either all of these barcodes or some of these barcodes EAN, GTINs, ISBN Barcodes, ISSN Barcodes, QR-Codes, and UPC Numbers. You need to do your research to find out which barcode you will need. It depends if you are selling a book, clothing, candles, or soap.

You might be asking this question, "Why should I have a barcode for my book? Well, this is your answer, a barcode is necessary on books because the book industry produces so many books annually that a special “country” EAN prefix has been designated just for books used within the universal barcode system.  The EAN prefix has been adapted in the sale and handling of books as the world wide standardization formula. In short form, the only way to keep track of how many books are sold and handled in each country with this unique, special little code. No book throughout the world will have the same barcode as your book.

For accounting purposes, barcodes help book stores with keeping track of their inventory by knowing what their inventory count is, how much their inventory is worth, the pricing of their inventory, and what the customers transactions are per hour, per day, per week, per moth, or per year, if they are needing to know. With your books barcode the store owner knows everything they need to know about your book price and where your book was made.

Looking for certified Barcode numbers, these businesses below, offer cost-effective Barcode numbers that are perfect for using on products you want to sell on Amazon or other online and offline retailers which require a barcode number. These businesses provide you with the 13-digit EAN and 12-digit UPC barcode numbers. Remember, the barcode numbers are yours for life.

Not sure what type of barcode to get. No problem, Has a Barcode Comparison Chart which shows you what each barcode looks like (barcode symbology), type of barcode, character set, length of barcode, checksum, scanners, and applications/comments.

Make sure you do your own research about barcodes and the companies that sell them. They are not cheap so you don’t want to waste your money. Before purchasing the barcodes make sure where you plan on selling your books online or offline will accept your barcode. Not all retailers do. If you have a publishing company making your books they handle the barcodes for you. You don't have to worry about that issue.

Here is a great article by The Book Designer – Practical Advice To Help Build Better Books – Article: ISBN 101 For Self-Publishers that I came across which helped me decide whether I should purchase my own barcode, use a FREE barcode, or use the one offered by my publishing company. This article helps you understand barcodes. More valuable information on the Book Marketing and Promotion Ideas page that will help your book or company.

I hope you find this information helpful in your marketing and promoting adventure. I decided not to charge for this information like other people do. The only payment I want is for you to purchase my book, Jamie’s Pet children's book available on Amazon only if you want to. Remember, leave a review.
