As of June 2017, Amazon has finally implemented a campaign to (spot) check the validity of EAN numbers for product listings. They state “We verify authenticity of product EANs by checking the GS1 database.” We very much welcome this effort as it helps eliminate fake, duplicate, and hijacked UPC numbers from the Amazon system and protects you as a seller.

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

: 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 an EAN barcode (European Article Number). We are the most visited and preferred site to safely buy official and legal EAN barcodes. You can order your EAN number(s) without the barcode graphic here at a 15% off discounted rate by entering the Promo Code NUMBERSONLY.


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

Simply Barcodes: Amazon, in order to properly identify your products in their inventory management system, requires a different EAN 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 EAN codes are required?
The answer: Six


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

: 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 EAN code prototype produced by your manufacturing facility before going into mass production.

: If you print your own EAN 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.

: 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.


: 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.

: 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 scannability in question due to the thickness, quality or other reasons?

We offer a variety of solutions including:

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

: The validity of a Product ID is checked against the GS1 GEPIR and databases. If your Product ID is not registered with GS1 then the linked ASIN will be suppressed and it may result in removal of your product creation privileges.

Simply Barcodes
: You will encounter this message when first listing a product on Amazon. All of our EAN Codes (Product IDs) originate from GS1 and are properly registered. You can check the “Don’t show this again” box and click “Got it.”
