Help! How do I get UPCs to sell my products on Amazon or Walmart?

Don’t worry, it is pretty easy and inexpensive if you don’t expect to need more than a few dozen UPCs. The initial license fee is as low as $250 with a much smaller annual license fee. It really depends on the number of products for which you expect to need UPCs for in the near future.

  1. Head to the source, GS1.
  2. Click on “I Need a Barcode” and you will be taken through a setup process.

Once you pay the inital license fee you’ll get a member kit including your Company Prefix which you can use to start making your own UPC codes. see: (How do I make my own UPC codes with my company prefix?)
