What on earth is UPC vs EAN?
Did you know that the Algopix platform allows you to seamlessly and quickly convert various product identifiers? By doing this, online sellers can more quickly identify products and coordinate with manufacturers. We’ve put together a brief guide on the differences between the product identifiers UPC and EAN to help you get started.
A UPC (Universal Product Code), is a 12-digit code that is unique for every product. The UPC is derived from a product’s barcode.
The EAN (formerly: European Article Number, now: International Article Number), is a 13-digit code that extends the UPC by a number that represents a country code.
Both product identifiers were designed to streamline inventory management and speed up the checkout process.
The role of UPC and ASIN for a seller
Both EAN and UPC identifiers allow retailers to effectively manage their inventory by making it possible to quickly check new orders, track items throughout the supply chain, and more efficiently facilitate the ordering process from manufacturers. These product identifiers also play a significant role when it comes to selling online.
Most eCommerce platforms like eBay and Amazon accept both EAN and UPC when listing a new product. EAN and UPC allow these platforms to identify the items, add them to their product catalog, and check for identical listings to pool them.
A seller providing the EAN and the UPC will gain increased visibility on eCommerce platforms, because customers will be able to find your listings faster, and your product’s placement on search engines like Google will improve. Walmart does not accept the EAN as a product ID but accepts the UPC, among others.
UPC to EAN converter using Algopix
There can be times when you only have the UPC of a product that you researched, but now you need the EAN because you want to order this product for your inventory from a manufacturer. To convert, you can use Algopix’s tool. It allows you to input any UPC and will deliver the matching EAN, all within a matter of seconds.
Algopix’s EAN to UPC converter
When selling in the US or on marketplaces like Walmart, sellers often find themselves with an EAN but are missing the UPC. Luckily, Algopix’s tool works both ways: not only does it convert UPC to EAN but also EAN to UPC. This is especially convenient for Walmart’s marketplace because they only accept the UPC and not the EAN.
With a quick EAN to UPC conversion (or vice versa), you can take your products anywhere in the world. A UPC is generally only used in North American markets, allowing companies to quickly transfer products from one retailer to another. If you are heading into (or out of) Europe, however, you’ll need an EAN as well.
By using the Algopix UPC converter, you’ll have amended product identifiers in a flash, and be selling to the before you know it and getting your piece of the 5.2 trillion dollars spent each year.
Manually converting individual EAN to UPC codes is a chore – luckily, Algopix has a solution! With the bulk analysis tool, you can load thousands of numbers in at the same time, and get a detailed, accurate report within minutes.
It includes an EAN to UPC converter, but can also provide you with an ASIN (Amazon Standard Identification Number) regardless of whether you have an EAN or UPC first, and other product information like:
- Shipping information
- Category trees
With this extensive profile of each product and listing, you will have a head start over any of your competitors. You’ll also be able to list your products anywhere you want, as you’ll have the necessary information for any retailer.
Unlike ASIN, which is only used on Amazon, EAN and UPC identifiers are used by almost everyone. That’s why Algopix also provides specific research on all of the major marketplaces, like Amazon, eBay, OpenSky, Rakuten, Sears, and Walmart. No matter where you want to sell, we have your back!
If you aren’t willing to settle for second best, make sure you arm yourself with the best information available. The detailed, extensive product research will set your eCommerce business up for success. It’s much more than just an EAN to UPC converter. It’s a whole world of information.
