U.P.C. Databases
& SKU Matching

Need the U.P.C. Database?

NEW for 2014 - Lower Database Prices


At the outset, YES I have the U.P.C. Database. In fact, I have many U.P.C. Databases.

However, before you send me an E-Mail requesting database files, YOU need to know what to ask for.


Before I tell you, let's look at the structure of a U.P.C.:

The first six digits above - 614141 (in this example) - are the Company Prefix assigned by GS1 US (formerly the Uniform Code Council).

The next five digits - 00027 - are the Company's internal Stock Keeping Unit (SKU) or product number.

The final digit - 2 - is a computer generated check digit.

While Company information is available from GS1 US, product information (the SKU and corresponding U.P.C.) is not.



For those of you still reading, I would assume that you are seeking MORE than just Company information. To that end, what you are really seeking is an

Electronic Product Catalog

Electronic Product Catalog - Final Thought:

Today you can find U.P.C. Data most everywhere, ranging from simple "user supported" Web Sites and Sponsored Data Libraries - at No Charge - to fully attributed Item Databases designed for truly Commercial use with easily "justifiable" Prices.

My Data falls in the latter category.

Put another way, when your Data HAS to be "right", Call me.
