Barcode registration is an optional service that we offer to generally increase the internet profile of your product. This service is completely optional and is not required for any barcode numbers as there is no central database for barcodes, however, there are several advantages to registering your barcodes online.
- Barcode registration helps with cell phone app scanners such as ‘Red Laser’ so that when the product barcode is scanned the product information will appear.
- Barcode registration will increase the internet profile of the product so that when the barcode is searched for on Google or another search engine the product information will appear.
- If a barcode is registered on internet databases, it can dissuade people from using the barcode number illegally on sites like Amazon. If a quick internet search tells the person that that barcode number is in use they will be much less likely to use the barcode. While people cannot legally use legitimately sold barcode numbers, if they are being used illegally it is an extra hassle for the legal owner of the barcode number to follow this up. This can be easily avoided with barcode registration.
