We occasionally get asked about free barcode generators.

If you require a barcode purely for your own use, for example, within your own store, or for asset tracking, then you can generate your own barcode numbers using an online tool. However, if you require a barcode for use on a retail product being sold in other stores, or on Amazon or elsewhere on the internet, then you can’t just generate a random barcode number. Retailers require a legitimate EAN or UPC retail barcode number, which can be purchased from us for a one-off cost.

We supply barcode numbers beginning with ’07’ which can be used worldwide. We don’t require membership or annual payments to lease the barcode numbers – they are yours to own for life.
