If you’re looking to list a new product on Amazon and you need a UPC/EAN code, you’ve come to the right place. All of our codes are from the GS1, and are fully compliant with Amazon. UPC codes are used by Amazon to identify products in their database, and if you are adding a new unique listing, you need a unique UPC code. Remember that each unique item needs a unique UPC, for example:
– If you’re selling T-Shirts, each unique Color will need a unique UPC. If you have 20 Black, 20 White, and 20 Green for sale, you’ll need 3 unique UPC codes, 1 for each unique Color.
All of the codes we sell at SnapUPC will work on Amazon, guaranteed! Glad to help solve any issues that may arise – we’ve helped thousands of businesses sell on Amazon successfully.
Note: it is always best practice to setup your listing/product info on Amazon prior to labeling your products.
To start using the UPC code(s), you’ll need an Amazon Merchant account that enables you to add new products to the Amazon catalog (a Pro Seller account). Once you login to your account, click on the Inventory tab (or Catalog Tab) at the top left navigation, click “Add a Product“, scroll down a bit to the “List a new product” section and then click on the “Create a New Product Listing” link:
After clicking that page, you’ll be taken to a page to select the category of your product, which you will choose depending on the product you’re selling. You can either search for a category or browse for a category:
Once your category is selected, you’ll be brought to a page that will ask for your Product Name, Manufacturer, etc. This is the “Vital Info” tab. At the bottom of the vital info tab is a required field called the “Product ID”, which is where you’ll need the UPC/EAN code that you purchase from us:
You’ll want to go through all of the tabs and fill in the required information on each tab, as well as any other information you can provide. Note that you can save the changes and later go back and edit them once all the required fields are filled in. Note: Make sure you filled in the required information on ALL tabs, otherwise you can’t submit the listing.
That’s all you need to do to list a new product on Amazon! If you want to list more unique items, you’ll need more unique UPC codes. We offer discounts for larger quantities. Note that each UPC can only be used for 1 unique product. Once you’ve used the UPC it cannot be used for another product since each UPC is unique.
Note that when you update the listing, it can take up to 15 minutes for the changes to save and for your listing to become active/updated.
Also note that if Amazon isn’t accepting the UPC code, ensure the Brand field you’re listing isn’t restricted. If you’re having issues saying the UPC doesn’t match the product you’re listing, test this issue by changing the Brand field and seeing if it solves the issue (see below).
To buy your UPC code(s) now, click on the button below:
“You are using UPCs, EANs, ISBNs, ASINs, or JAN codes that do not match the products you are trying to list.”
This error typically happens on Amazon if you’re listing a Brand that already has UPCs and Amazon is restricting the Brand from adding more UPCs (to prevent duplicate listings). Or it is caused by listing a product that is already on Amazon (and has a similar Product Title). The issue typically isn’t with the UPCs themselves, but with the restrictions placed on the Brand or Amazon preventing duplicate listings. To test if this is a Brand restriction, change the “Brand” field to something else unique and it should solve the issue. If the issue goes away, we know it was a Brand restriction.
If the issue doesn’t go away after changing the Brand, please contact us answering the following questions:
1. What is the Brand name and Product Title you’re testing with?
2. Do you have Brand Registry?
3. Are you creating a variation listing or a parent item?
4. What category are you listing in?
Once we get this information, we can assist you further.
Receiving some error on Amazon and Amazon is requesting GS1 information, or wants Proof of Affiliation
The first step in solving this is to identify the exact error you’re getting when listing. When you follow the instructions on this page, your listing should go live successfully. If it doesn’t, please send the exact error and/or screenshot to us and we’ll be glad to help. Amazon support often offers contradictory advice (where one representative will suggest one thing while another person will say something different). We recommend sending the exact error to us so we can better suggest what to do. Most often, the issue is simple a Branding issue, or an issue with the way you entered the Product ID.
