Description

What Is A Barcode?

A Barcode is an optical, machine-readable, representation of data. This data usually describes the information about the object that carries the Barcode. A Barcode essentially is a way to encode information in a visual pattern that a machine can read. A Barcode can hold any type of text information you encode. Barcodes are mostly used in supermarkets when you purchase an item, this Barcode is scanned by the cashier, and the item’s description and price automatically come up. Barcodes are issued by Global Standards One (GS1) and are of two types: Universal Product Code (UPC) and European Article Number (EAN). “GTIN” is a newer name given to the UPC/EAN codes by the GS1 organization, it means “Global Trade Identification Number”.

When you purchase an item from any store, you will notice a label with thin, black lines across it, along with a variation of different numbers. This label is then scanned by the cashier, and the item’s description and price automatically come up. The word for this is called a barcode, and it is used to read data and information based upon the widths of those small black lines. A barcode essentially is a way to encode information in a visual pattern that a machine can read. A barcode can hold any type of text information you encode.

How do Barcodes Work?

When you go to sell your product at a retailer, that retailer will have you fill out a product information form. On that form is where you will put your company and product details as well as your 12-digit UPC (Or 13-digit EAN) barcode number. The retailer then manually enters that information into their inventory management computer. This way, when they scan your barcode at the register (or on their site), it calls up that form in their system and gives you credit for the sale.

In other words, the barcode is simply a link between your product and the product information form you fill out for each store that sells your product. The bar code number & bar code image itself does not contain any hidden data, names, prices etc.

Each store, website and database system will be private, internal and is usually not publicly editable. This means that in order for you to get into a store or get your data onto a particular website that you want, you will need to manually contact that store/site and ask them what you need to do to manually upload your data so that it appears on their system/servers.
