FAQ / What are EAN barcodes? Do I really need one?
The EAN barcode system is used outside of the United States and Canada. EAN barcodes look similar to UPC codes but are 13 digits long. An EAN barcode (also known as GTIN-13) is just another retail product barcode. It works much like the UPC barcode, yet if your product originates in the US, it is not necessary.
