With the economy growing at a rate of about 7 percent annually, Mozambique as a whole has been bustling in its development. Natural gas resources were discovered in 2010, and since then, your country has seized the investment opportunity. And with so many small, privatised businesses cropping up, needing a barcode becomes a part of the equation.
The process of acquiring a barcode may seem a daunting task at first as you enter the industry. There is a lot of information out there – with plenty of varying types of barcodes and specifications – and it can be difficult to make sense of it and pin point exactly what you need specifically for your business. We at SA Barcodes strive to not only serve you as best we can, but educate you. We would like you to leave with your purchase with a sense of understanding and knowledge of the industry, ready to approach your intended retailers – such as Saverite, Pick n’ Pay, Game, Jet and many more – with your products.
So, what do you need for your products?
The most commonly used barcodes in retail stores are UPC and EAN barcodes. You’ll require this kind of barcode in order to sell your products – local agricultural produce such as sugar, prawns and shrimps, and any other food items; clothing items; appliances; CDs and DVDs; etc. – at stores. We do advise however to check with your intended retailers on whether they prefer the UPC or EAN format as it tends to differ from store to store with suppliers having to compensate. SA Barcodes does however provide you with both the UPC and EAN versions of your barcode numbers for your convenience.
Just to let you in on how simple the process of buying barcodes is at SA Barcodes, all we basically need from you is your company name as well as confirmation that you have read and accepted our terms and conditions. A conveniently packaged zipped folder is then delivered to your email upon receiving proof of payment, and it contains everything necessary to get your products into store:
- The barcode numbers
- High resolution corresponding images
- PDF and Excel spreadsheets of the numbers for easy reference
- A certificate of registration
- A sizing template to help with printing and scaling
- A copy of your purchase invoice
- A copy of the terms and conditions
We’d also like to encourage you to browse through our customer testimonial page and have a look at some of our past customers and their successful products. Our barcode numbers are fully registered with the official international barcode number provider, Gs1. We guarantee that our numbers are completely unique, authentic, and recognised at the majority of retail stores in Mozambique and across the rest of the world.
