Upc What is the UPC Code?
UPc code In the process of adding your product for sale on Amazon, you, as a retailer, will need to provide a UPC or EAN code. These codes are used for marking/identifying goods.UPC (Universal Product Code) is a 12-letter code used in the United States, and EAN (European Title Number) is used in European countries. Unlike the UPC, the EAN code has 13 characters.It should be noted that both the EAN – 13 digits and the UPC – 12 digits are approved by GS1 (an international organization responsible for accounting system and bar code for entry units).
UPC code :
In the first stage, you can not do without the UPC code! If you are selling a product on Amazon under a registered brand, you can contact GS1 and get a unique product identifier for your product, which you will use later instead of UPC.Another very popular question is how many UPC code do I need for my product if my product has too many variations (color, size, etc.)UPCs are used by Amazon to identify products on their website, and if you add a new, different listing, you need a unique UPC.Remember that everything different requires a different UPC, for example:
UPC number = size size : (UPS code)
When you sell T-shirts, each different color will require a different UPC. If you have 20 Black, 20 White and 20 Green you can sell, you will need 3 different UPC codes, 1 for each unique color. And if there are still different sizes, UPC number = size size * color number.
To start using UPC codes, you will need an Amazon Merchant account, which will allow you to add new products to the Amazon catalog (Pro Seller account). After logging in to your account, go to the Utilities tab in the top left navigation bar, click Add Product, and then click the Create New Product link:
After clicking this page, you will be taken to a page to select the category of your product to choose based on the product you are selling. You can search for a category or browse a category:
Next, fill in all the tabs with the required information (for each tab) UPS code as well as any other information you may provide. Please note that you can save your changes and go back and edit them after completing all the required fields.
That’s all you have to do to add a new product to Amazon! If you want different things, you will need different UPC codes.
Please note that each UPC can only be used for one unique product. If you use UPC, it cannot be used for another product as each UPC is different.
