If you would like to have a barcode company prefix for your firm, there are two ways you can it:
(1) Join GS1 India and pay their registration and annual license fees
(2) Purchase barcodes from us in sets of 10, 100, 1000, or 10,000.
Company prefixes are not available for quantities fewer than 10.
The length of the prefix depends on how many variations are required to make a total of 13 digits.
For instance – if you buy 10 numbers, then of the 13 digits, the first 11 digits will be your prefix, the 12th will vary from 0-9 (giving you 10 different barcode numbers), and the last digit is a calculated checksum.
If you purchase 100 barcode numbers, then of the 13 digits, the first 10 will be your company prefix, the 11th & 12th digits will vary from 00-99 (giving you 100 different barcode numbers), and the last digit is the check digit.
