ISSN South Africa
I need an ISSN South Africa barcode for my serial publication. Can SA Barcodes help?
ISSN barcode numbers can be used for both physical and online retail stores. And our ISSN numbers are accepted at just about every retail store in South Africa and the rest of the world.
You also need to know that each variation, edition or issue of your publication needs its own unique ISSN barcode number – this ensures that each variant receives its own pricing information at the point of sale and that inventory is sufficiently tracked. Some retail stores however don’t require you to purchase a new ISSN number for each issue, but this you will need to check with your intended retailers beforehand.
Upon purchasing an ISSN barcode from us, we will then source the barcode number for you – this usually takes up to ten days. Once we receive the number however, we can then promptly send it to you via email within one working day.
There are a few items we need submitted from you before we can source the barcode number, and these items will be sent to you via email as an application form. They are:
- Your acceptance of our terms and conditions
- Your proof of payment
- The cover/front page of your publication
- The editorial page – or any page where the address appears
Once we have received your submission, we can then send you the ISSN number via email within one working day.
Please note that cover and editorial pages can be sent in PDF, Jpeg or even photocopy formats and they do not need to be your final versions. Final versions however, need to be sent through to us once the publication has been printed and these need to be in either PDF or Jpeg formats.
If you have any further questions, do not hesitate to give us a call or send us an email and our friendly staff will be happy to assist you.
