Where do I get my UPC Code?
In order to get a GS1 Company Prefix, you must apply for membership to the GS1 US (formerly the Uniform Code Council). There is a fee for membership and it is based upon the information you provide about your company on the online application.

What about UPC code resellers?
There are now a few online companies that are "reselling" unique UPC numbers containing the GS1 US Company Prefix that has been issued to their company. Basically, these resellers are focusing on the smaller companies who may not see the long-term benefits of buying a GS1 US Company Prefix from GS1 US. Although the fee to obtain a GS1 US Company Prefix may be considerably cheaper than GS1 US, please consider the benefits of joining GS1 US before considering these companies. Many retailers now validate the prefix license on items and these items will come back as "owned" by another company, thus having the product rejected from inventory. This only costs businesses more money in the long run as they then have to relabel products to sell into retail and online platforms.

What are the benefits included only with a GS1 US Partner Connection Membership?
As a GS1 US Partner Connections member, you receive a unique GS1 US Company Prefix that is licensed and reserved exclusively for use by your company to create identification numbers and associated bar codes, such as the Universal Product Code (U.P.C.).
