What is the Amazon UPC code of cross-border e-commerce logistics and how to obtain it

When Amazon sellers launch their products, they require various codes, such as Amazon ASIN code,Amazon UPC codeAnd so on, different site requirements are different, some must have, some are not mandatory.

Different Amazon sites have different requirements. For example, the United States and Canada require that the product must have an Amazon UPC code when it goes on sale, or it will not go on sale correctly.

The UPC code is a bar code. In short, it is similar to the bar code we see when shopping in a physical store. Through the bar code, we can clearly understand the product information, as well as more information about the site products.

What is Amazon UPC code

Amazon UPC code is also called universal barcode, because it is widely used in any product.

The UPC code was first formulated by the United States Uniform Code Commission, which consists of 12 digits. Each product corresponds to a UPC code, and each UPC code is different. Each UPC code contains the detailed information of the product, including the origin, manufacturer, product characteristics, etc.

For example, if Chinese products are to be exported to the United States, UPC codes must be required when the products are put on the shelves, otherwise the normal sales of the products will be affected.

How to obtain Amazon UPC code

For Amazon sellers, they can generally obtain UPC codes through official channels or automatically generated methods. Usually, the more you buy, the cheaper the price is.

The seller can purchase it on Amazon's official website, such as GS1:http://www.gs1.org/barcodes/ean-upc ; Or Barcodes, https://www.barcodestalk.com 。 The products purchased on the official website are generally authentic, and the quality is guaranteed.

The regular UPC code can be found on the website of the United States Uniform Code Commission. When the seller is not sure whether it is true or not, he can log on to the website.

It can also be obtained by joining the China Commodity Barcode System, and the cost varies according to the enterprise and product.

After Amazon files the brand, Amazon will provide the GCID code to the seller, which is equivalent to the UPC code. The seller will no longer need to purchase the UPC code.

Some sellers directly use the UPC code generator to generate it automatically. There are many counterfeits of this kind, and most of them have been used. Blueocean Yiguan suggests that sellers choose a professional and reliable official website to obtain them.

Blue Ocean Yiguan reminds sellers that when purchasing Amazon UPC codes, they should pay attention to identifying the true and false, and avoid buying fake or reused UPC codes, which will cause many problems for sellers, and may cause the risk that the account will be frozen or blocked.
