The Pros & Cons of Buying
From EZUPC vs. the GS1
of Buying from EZUPC
When you buy from us, you save hundreds or even thousands of dollars depending on how many products you have.
You can use your codes anywhere in the world. If you live outside North America you will automatically receive EAN Barcode graphics in your order and can use your numbers as either UPC or EAN codes.
We offer a 14 Day Money Back Guarantee Return Policy
If you run into any issues using our numbers that we cannot help you resolve within 14 days of purchase, we will refund your transaction on orders of quantities 20 or less.
If you are considering a large quantity of numbers, we highly recommend you buy a single number or several and test them first. If you run into any issues, 99% of the time we can help you resolve the issue.
You will own your numbers for life as an asset that belongs to your company—no leasing of numbers that requires annual fees to maintain ownership like the GS1.
We guarantee that our numbers will work on Amazon, as long as you do not own a Registered Trademark ® and are not planning to participe in the Amazon Brand Registry (if you have an existing Brand/Storefront you can use our numbers), and that you follow our instructions included with your order on entering your products into their system when creating your listings.
Note: The Amazon Brand Registry is intended to protect giant company’s trademarks (think Coca Cola or Proctor & Gamble) and requires that you own a Registered Trademark ®. You don’t need to enroll in the Brand Registry—companies with thousands of products that are sold by re-sellers and distributors worldwide benefit by using it in order to keep their brands protected from knockoff sellers.
We are one of the oldest and most trusted legal, verfied authentic Barcode Resellers out there since 2007. We have sold hundreds of thousands of numbers in use throughout the world. We are fully transparent and operate with integrity, unlike a lot of our competitors, some of which have even been fined by the Federal Trade Commission.
It’s fast and easy and you’ll get your numbers and barcode graphics in minutes that you can use for online selling and at *most* physical retail stores. See the Cons column for info about the handful of retailers that won’t accept UPC Codes issued by us.

We provide detailed instructions on how to successfully create your Amazon product listings.
We answer our phones (or will return your call) and pride ourselves on our Customer Service. We will help you as much as we can with any questions or issues related to putting barcodes on your products or navigating using your codes.
We provide a Certificate of Ownership, Authenticity and Uniqueness that is a binding contract between EZUPC and you regarding the transfer of ownership to you and the legitimacy of the GTINs we sell. This Certificate is accepted by Amazon as a “direct affiliation with the company appearing in the GS1’s GEPIR database”.

of Buying from EZUPC
When you buy from us your company information will not appear in the GS1 Database—they will show the original company that owns the prefix which we now legally own and are able to sell subset numbers to you due to the 2002 Class Action Settlement Agreement from the lawsuit that the GS1 (formerly UCC) lost and agreed to settlement.
That said, it is absolutely not necessary and definitely not a deal-breaker for most of you that your company will not appear in the GS1 database. Contrary to what they want you to believe, there is no central database that tracks all the gazillions of individual barcode numbers in use throughout the world—that would be impossible. And the fact is, the GS1’s database is only tracking about 25-30%. Not to mention, the GS1 is not government and barcodes are not regulated.
When you buy from us you are only getting individual GTINs (UPC/EAN Barcode numbers) and not a Company Prefix. This is also not a deal breaker for most of you as the vast majority of companies don’t need a prefix, especially if you’re only selling online or locally.
When you buy from us you can’t use your numbers at a national level in physical Walmart & Sam’s Club stores (Walmart.com is okay), Kroger branded groceries (such as Kroger, Fry’s, King Soopers, Food 4 Less, Fred Meyer, etc.), Macy’s and Bloomingdales. and a small number of other retailers who may require that you purchase directly from the GS1.
This has nothing to do with the numbers or us, but is merely a matter of policy because those stores all have members on the Board of the GS1.
