  • Problems with my GTIN number.

    I am new to the business world, since I have been a software engineer and writer all my life.

    But now I am trying to start a business. I am trying to set it up online. Part of the process has been to create a GTIN for a product I have made. I have already downloaded the bar code from gs1 after I purchased the GTIN from gs1. As proof, here is the bar code I downloaded.

    But as I was trying to set up my page online, on an ecommerce site, I was told that the validity of the Product Id could not be confirmed in the GS1 GPIR which, I assume, is some sort of database. Do I need to contact someone? I already sent a request to GS1 for help. I am wondering if anyone here has any advice and/or experience with this.

    It's unfortunate, but getting a UPC or GTIN code now costs money - on an annual basis. I have an old account inherited from a family member that was grandfathered in, and is free with no renewal fees.

    My experience has been that as long as the code is unique, you assign a product to it yourself and the code should work.
