EAN codes are not a random combination of digits put together. They’re issued by GS1 on their website. GS1 holds all the rights and patents to barcodes. If you want to export many products, you must obtain equal number of EAN codes directly. Amazon SPN
or Service Provider Network is a third-party service provider who can assist you with EAN codes.
To obtain an EAN, register with GS1 India. You will be required to upload a few business documents like PAN and GST, among others. Along with that, you can fill the online application form and submit it. You must add all your product variants and categories that your business offers. The number of EAN codes applied for cannot be changed later. The registration process usually takes about 7-10 working days3
Once you have the EAN code, make sure that the number does not cover up a large part of a product. It is suggested that the code not take up more than 25% of the product or its packaging. There are usually 10 standard sizes that users can choose between. It should also be clearly visible. A black code on a white surface is ideal.
Post obtaining EAN and other required licenses, you can export from India
in an easy and simple way with Amazon Global Selling.
