Looking to get a product into the retail market? SingleUPC.com, the largest online resource for barcode labels and electronic files, has solutions enabling small companies to obtain UPC's to satisfy prospective retailers' requirements. A UPC is a 12-digit number used to identify a particular retail selling unit and is required by most retail and internet marketplaces. The UPC's provided by SingleUPC.com come from a common company prefix and are intended to serve customers who need a UPC to do business over the internet or with small or local retailers
With the SingleUPC.com basic service starting at only $55, users can avoid the high cost of joining the GS1 and paying annual dues ($750 plus $150 each year). Purchasing a UPC from SingleUPC is an economical solution for those who wish to gain access retail markets, but do not need their own company prefix. Some of the very large retailers do require their supplier to have their own Company Prefix, and we encourage those prospective suppliers to obtain a prefix directly from GS1 US. Due to their unique position in the market, GS1 has created a financial barrier for many small businesses. Oddly, it is more expensive to obtain a Company Prefix from GS1 than it is to incorporate a business.
In addition to the UPC number, users will also receive a digital bar code file containing the bar code artwork necessary for incorporating your UPC into product packaging. The UPC and the digital bar code file are all ready within minutes of ordering. If you need a UPC to get your product on the shelves of small retailers or local shops, or to sell your product on the internet, SingleUPC.com is the fast and affordable way to make that happen.
