SA Barcodes is your one stop barcode shop in South Africa. We know barcodes and will guide you efficiently and more importantly, enjoyably, to getting your first product in stores in South Africa or anywhere else in the world.
As small business owners, we’ve been shocked at the quality of customer service in South Africa. We’ve discovered the hard way, in Cape Town at least, that the only way to get what you paid for is through nagging, pestering and repeated phone calls. Having a company or individual phone us back if we’ve left a message is nothing short of a miracle! At SA Barcodes, we put our customers first. We aim to give best customer service that the barcodes industry in South Africa has ever known.
The cost of barcodes in South Africa can be a major stumbling block in getting your CD, food or any other product in store. Your first barcode number through GS1 costs R1771 with an annual renewal fee of R225. That is a hefty amount of money for a small business owner, especially since money is often tight starting out. Compare this to SA Barcodes, where you only pay R275 for one barcode. We have happy customers right across Southern Africa, so there’s absolutely no reason to spend more than is necessary on getting your barcodes. Don’t forget that we also have price breaks – the more barcodes you buy the more you save.
3. Fast Delivery
Buying barcodes doesn’t need to be complicated. Barcodes are essentially just unique numbers that are linked to a particular product. Since the link between the barcode number and the product happens at the respective retailer itself, you don’t have to wait days or weeks to have your barcode numbers registered to different products. We can send GS1 registered, unique barcode numbers almost instantly, anywhere in the world, thanks to the wonders of email and the internet. If you need your barcodes in a hurry, you’ve come to the right place. Barcode packages get sent via email 3 times a day at SA Barcodes – morning, afternoon and early evening. While our website says that it takes up to 24 hours to receive your barcode package, in truth we’re much faster than that. Put us to the test!
4. No paperwork
We send our barcode packages via email. They contain everything you need to get your product in stores on the barcode side of things. In your barcode package you will get your registered barcode numbers in both PDF and Excel Spreadsheet formats, images of the barcodes that you can use to insert the barcode image onto your product packaging as well as a certificate of ownership. That’s all you need. No paperwork is required – save a tree today.
5. We know the Industry
Derek and Andreas know the ins and outs of what seems like a complicated industry. SA Barcodes may be a relatively new business, but many hours have gone into learning exactly how barcodes work and what is required to get your products in store hassle free. If you have any questions just give us a call or pop us an email, we’ll be able to help you get what you need.
6. Serving customers across Southern Africa
We can accept payments and send barcode packages anywhere in Southern Africa (and in fact anywhere in the world.) We have happy customers from Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe and Zambia.
