In a couple of weeks time I’m going to interview GS1 and ask some of the questions you want answers to. If there is anything you’d like asked, please pop your question in comments below.
GS1 are the authority on GTINs ( EANs and UPCs) and if you want to buy genuine GTINs they are the only people that can issue them for your business, but some people still sell unauthorised GTINs on the Internet. Should you buy genuine GTINs or unathorised ones? What if you already have unathorised GTINs what should you do? They’re a pain point when all you want to do is list your inventory on marketplaces. We want to ask GS1 the questions you want answered.
What are we going to ask?
The type of questions Tamebay readers have already asked are:
Do GTINs on marketplaces really make a difference with search engine traffic?
Why should I buy a GTIN if other retailers can then use it?
I have custom made products and someone else is selling a similar product and using my GTIN, what can I do?
I bought GTINs someone else, why should I (and can I) update my marketplace listing with GTINs from GS1?
I don’t want reviews for other sellers appearing against my eBay listings so I don’t use GTINs. Am I right to do this?
Why should I pay for GTINs, surely the manufacturer should do this?
I’m sure there are many other similar questions. Let us know what you want to ask and we’ll put the questions to GS1 in the interview.
