Barcode Databases

Getting more information from a barcode

Barcode database sites and smartphone barcode apps search the internet for information about the particular barcode number that has been entered or scanned. The returned information is generally the company name and/or contact details, relevant product information, or even where you can purchase a product from.

You can search for an EAN-13 or UPC barcode number on various sites or apps (such as International Barcodes Database, IBNREG, or using smartphone apps such as Zebra Scanner).

If you buy barcodes from us, you will receive free barcode/product registration on IBNREG (International Barcode Network Registry) and the International Barcodes Database. When you register your barcode number and product details on the International Barcodes Database, then your product details will be displayed when customers search for your barcode number in online search engines (e.g. Google) or on some smartphone apps.

Please note that some smart-phone barcode apps only search in online stores such as Amazon.com (they don’t search in the online barcode databases). This means that their database of barcode numbers/product details is minimal. The best smartphone barcode app‘s search in Amazon and other online stores and the main online barcode/product databases.
