As you can guess from its name, this sort of code is used everywhere: on marketplaces, in online shops, and in brick-and-mortar stores.
The 12-digit Universal Product Code (UPC) is frequently used in the US, Canada, the UK, Australia, and other nations. It can be used for any type of item that your business offers, from electronics to apparel and foods.
How to obtain a UPC for your item? You need to register with GS1 and receive your company code prior to being able to obtain a UPC for your items. All of your items will have this prefix to help customers recognize you as the seller.
