Things to Consider
Before You Buy
From a Reseller Like Us
Not all barcode resellers are the same. There are many scam sites that sell fake or stolen numbers.
Do they provide a Certificate of Ownership, Authenticity and Uniqueness that is a binding contract between them and you regarding the legitimacy of the UPC (or EAN) bar code numbers? This Certificate is accepted by Amazon as a “direct affiliation with the company appearing in the GS-1’s GEPIR database”.
Do they accept credit cards via a REAL merchant processor like Authorize.net and not just Paypal or Google Checkout, meaning they have to be set up us a legitimate business that you can come back to later if you have problems? The fact is, anyone can take payment through processors like Paypal, Google Checkout, etc., however it takes clout, integrity and being a true business (and not just a fly-by-night-website) to get approved for an actual Merchant Account.
Are they selling you the numbers outright because they can prove they rightfully own a prefix issued by the UCC (now called the GS1) prior to August 2002 or are they merely renting you use of the numbers?
The fact is, it is not that easy to find legitimate prefixes that can be legally resold and there are lots of companies these days that are selling fraudulent or illegally obtained numbers and that will only serve to be a problem for you, the consumer in the end, as you may be forced to repurchase numbers from a legitimate source and relabel all of your products and resubmit new numbers and product to all of your retailers.
Note that two of our competitors with lowball pricing were involved in an action brought against them by the Federal Trade Commission in 2014 and were fined $20,000 for Price Collusion. You can read about the complaint here.
