What are EAN/UPC/ISBN numbers?



The European Article Number (EAN) is a barcode standard, a 12- or 13-digit product identification code. Each EAN uniquely identifies the product, manufacturer, and its attributes; typically, the EAN is printed on a product label or packaging as a bar code. eBay requires EAN codes to improve the quality of search results and the quality of the catalog as a whole. You can obtain EANs from the manufacturer. If your products do not have manufacturer EANs, and you need to buy EAN codes, you; should go directly to GS1 UK https://www.gs1uk.org


Universal Product Code (UPC) is a 12-digit bar code used extensively for retail packaging in the United States.
