    If I have 1 product in 2 different colours, do I need 2 separate bar codes for them? Also what is the official place to get the bar code from, is it GS1?

    Hi Ivel,

    Yes, you would need 2 barcodes for each colour. Like a SKU code, a retailer needs to be able to differentiate between a product by colour and by size. Otherwise, they wouldn't know what they have sold. Take jeans for example, you have many different waist and length variations. You need to know what the customer is purchasing and what stock you have.

    GS1 us where I've always purchased from. It may not be the cheapest but worked fine for me.
