What types of Barcodes does Amazon accept?
  Amazon accepts UPC codes and EAN codes, which are the retail barcodes used on products sold outside of the USA and Canada.
 
 

How are Barcodes for Amazon different?
  Barcodes for Amazon are general use barcodes not different from those used on other products.

In what format are my Barcodes for Amazon?

EPS Format - This layered, vector EPS file, generated in Adobe Illustrator, is the preferred format of most graphic designers due to its quality and versatility, particularly for resizing. EPS is an "exchange" format, not necessarily associated with one specific graphics program. An exchange format is one intended for multiple applications to be able to open.
TIFF Format - This layered TIFF file, created in Adobe Photoshop, works well for graphic artists who prefer to work in Photoshop and need a transparent background. This format is not suitable for significant resizing.
JPEG Format - This uncompressed, high-quality JPEG file, created in Adobe Photoshop, is the most common file format. However, it is not suitable for significant resizing.

Let us help you with Amazon’s compliance guidelines...

Amazon
: A barcode is a symbol that allows an optical scanning tool to identify the product or book title.

Simply Barcodes: Amazon requires that all non-book products carry a UPC barcode (Universal Product Code). We are the most visited and preferred site to safely buy official and legal UPC barcodes. You can order your UPC number(s) without the barcode graphic here at a 15% off discounted rate by entering the Promo Code NUMBERSONLY.

Book products to be sold on Amazon should carry an ISBN barcode (International Standard Book Number). Please visit our Barcodes for Books section for information.
 

Amazon
: The barcode of product type must scan to an original ISBN or UPC number. If you get a new ISBN or UPC number, you must get a new ISBN or UPC barcode.

Simply Barcodes: Amazon, in order to properly identify your products in their inventory management system, requires a different UPC barcode for each product.

Example: You produce and sell picture frames and want to offer your frames for sale on Amazon. You carry two colors dark walnut and cherry, and both frames come in three sizes including small, medium and large.

How many unique UPC codes are required?
The answer: Six

Why?

Product One: Dark Walnut Frame Small

Product Two: Dark Walnut Frame Medium

Product Three: Dark Walnut Frame Large

Product Four: Cherry Frame Small

Product Five: Cherry Frame Medium

Product Six: Cherry Frame Large
 

Amazon
: To ensure proper scanning, bar codes should be tested with a full ANSI-certified verifier.

Simply Barcodes
: We use ANSI-certified Motorola Symbol equipment to test-scan all barcode label orders. Simply Barcodes strongly recommends test-scanning any UPC code prototype produced by your manufacturing facility before going into mass production.
 

Amazon
: If you print your own UPC barcodes, be aware that defects may reduce scannability.

Simply Barcodes
: We are barcode experts.

Most local print shops have no experience with the unique requirements of barcode printing and trying to do it yourself may not produce a scannable barcode.
 

Amazon
: Bar codes should be printed with black ink on a white background, and there must be 1/4-inch of white space on the left and right sides of your bar code.

Simply Barcodes
: We know the requirements and our years of experience offer you peace of mind.

We offer four choices of verified scannable barcode labels.

If you would like to order pre-printed barcode labels, please click label printing.
 

Amazon
: If your bar code does not scan, you will be liable for non-compliance charges.

Simply Barcodes
: Avoid this costly problem!

Our barcode labels conform to the recommended specifications of the barcode equipment manufacturers, and we test-scan to verify usability.

We also offer test-scanning of barcodes and encourage you to use this service before going into mass production.
 

Amazon
: New CDs and DVDs should always be shrink-wrapped differentiating them from used copies. Bar code must scan through any protective packaging.

Simply Barcodes
: Is your barcode’s scanability in question due to the thickness, quality or other reasons?

We offer a variety of solutions including:

1. Label the outside of your product. For label printing information visit barcode labels.

2. Order high-quality, retail-ready CD or DVDs from our preferred partner Rovix, Inc.
