“We verify the authenticity of product identifiers by checking the GS1 database. EAN/UPC codes that do not match the information provided by GS1 will be considered invalid,” Amazon Seller Central.
What does this mean? Do I have to rent a company prefix and associate myself with GS1? No. Since we offer our Codifica Service, you can obtain individual UPC, EAN, and GTIN codes registered under your company, certified and guaranteed by GS1. Take a look at the latest applications from our customers who have successfully listed on Amazon using our Coding Service!
The dark side of Amazon!
From what we have observed, it seems that Amazon has different behaviors in accepting products and GTIN Codes (EAN and UPC) based on the methods of publication, the quantity of products to be published and the “caliber” of the Seller, therefore using also the numbers provided by our Standard Service. We don’t know what alleged agreements could take place but certainly here is our disappointment
Issues with Publishing on Amazon?
For Amazon Sellers using our Codifica Service, we have created this page that provides a list of possible solutions for the most common errors you may encounter when listing your products on Amazon. We recommend providing Amazon with a copy of your GS1 Certificate along with a screenshot of the GS1 GEPIR that demonstrates the Code is licensed to your Company. Of course, with our Codifica Service, you will have everything you may need. If you need support, contact Amazon’s Seller Partner Support.
It is important that your product images meet the requirements of your online marketplace. How you present your products influences the customer’s purchasing decision. On Amazon, if your product images do not meet the specifications, they may be removed from the site.
Preparation and Packaging for Amazon Logistics
Do I need to apply a Barcode to each item shipped to Amazon Fulfillment Centers?
Only if you are unable to label it with the appropriate Amazon Product Label.
Amazon requires its own Product Label for the entire inventory.
For suppliers who are unable to apply an Amazon Product Label to each item, it is necessary to mark the items with their own Barcode and then pay Amazon for the application of the Amazon Product Label.
