ISSN South Africa
I need an ISSN South Africa barcode for my serial publication. Can SA Barcodes help?
SA Barcodes provides magazine and newspaper publishers with ISSN barcodes for their serial publications. ISSN stands for International Standard Serial Number, and so is valid not just in South African retail barcode systems, but all over the world.
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 package from us, we will assist you in generating the barcode using your ISSN number which won’ take more than two days however the ISSN Centre may take up to two months to issue you the 8-digit ISSN code which we have no control over. Once you have received the number from the ISSN Centre, you can simply send it to us, and we will design your barcode.
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.
