Barcodes: Internationally Recognized or for Internal Usage?
Barcode labels need to be built on the basis of some numeric values. Depending on what codes are used for barcode labels generation, they can be created for personal usage within the store or universally accepted.
If you use internationally recognized barcodes which are purchased from specialist barcode providers, your labels will be in a standardized global language for suppliers and retailers to ‘communicate’ with each other. To these codes that are recognized worldwide belong: EAN, UPC, GTIN, ISBN, ASIN or any other unique code you get registering your products through official standards organizations in your country.
When standardizing your barcodes for internal uses, you can use any numeric product records you have in your online store - SKU, ID, MPN or any other. Just mind that they need to be unique in order to avoid duplicated values when managing goods.
