I work with and use UPC bar codes on a daily basis as part of my business. I was in need of a number of new UPC codes. I called another company and was told that I could purchase some for 750.00!!!! Really???? I asked why they were so high on their prices and they told me they were the only authorized supply. I found Bar Codes Talk online and gave them a call. They explained everything to me in terms I could understand. So, it was evident to me, the first company I called were taking advantage of the public! I highly recommend Bar Codes Talk!!!!

Mike was very helpful on the phone when I needed help with an order quickly. Within a day I had what I needed for turn around a product.
He worked with me on sizing with my own labels but also offered to price match what we already buy.
I generally buy directly from the because it’s easier when it’s mailed out. They mail out with super speed.
Have been a customer for 6 years and will plan on using them from here on. Just won a lifetime customer here!

Review by Insha Aitazzi4 months ago
Extremely disappointed with this company. It used to be a good source for UPC codes, however, when I purchased 10,000 UPC codes on 03/15 and went to use them the following week, Amazon indicated that 2,000 of the codes were USED!!!! What the heck.
I've reached out to the company to give them a chance to make it right. But they refused. They deflected the problem as an Amazon issue. By the way, I've purchased over 80,000 codes from them. I will move my business to another company. Does anyone have recommendations?
I'll be filing a BBB complaint. My lawyer will file suit soon. And I'll warn others to avoid this firm via Yelp, Facebook, Twitter and other review sites.

I love that I can call and speak to an actual person whom I can understand and that is knowledgeable in their field. Questions are answered clearly and transactions are quick. I have had a wonderful experience with Bar Codes Talk each time I have needed assistance. Thank you Moise for your patience and help.

This is quite a saga, so I've now added this summary of what has happened so far. Basically I would recommend avoiding Bar Codes Talk at all costs:
(1) I purchased codes for use on Amazon (advertised for this purpose by Bar Codes Talk), they didn't work on Amazon and Bar Codes Talk would not refund. The explanation they give is plainly ludicrous (more details below).
(2) I asked my bank to initiate a chargeback to get my money back. Once the money was returned, Bar Codes Talk claimed they had told their bank to provide the refund. I later received their official response to the chargeback via my bank which was to completely reject it.
(3) I commented in my review that Bar Codes Talk only had 3 reviews on TrustPilot all at 1-star - as if by magic, within hours 3 very short 5-star reviews appear! They are also playing the review system.
(4) Bar Codes Talk regularly refer to their '1,000+ 5-star reviews' on Google Merchants or Google Shopping (the info changes each time!) They never provide a link to this and if you search Google nothing at all comes up.
In short, buy nothing from them. BEWARE! The following is the original review content with all the sorry details.
Original Review Content
I purchased 2,500 EAN codes because I needed them to list products on Amazon. Barcodes Talk website states that their codes work with Amazon. Of the 100 codes I tested exactly 0 worked. Blaming Amazon in no way removes the responsibility to ensure codes work with Amazon if that is what they are sold as. If there is any doubt, they should be testing those codes before they are sold. I have now successfully claimed the money back via chargeback. They don't even seem to care that they are charging customers hundreds of dollars for utterly useless codes! Avoid this website at all costs!
Bar Codes Talk have given their standard response below, which is just ridiculous. You cannot sell something for a specific purpose and then when it isn't suitable for that purpose blame something that happened years before the sale was made. It's obviously breach of contract. It's a bit like a garage selling you a car and when you arrive to pick it up telling you that the car was stolen in 1984 and then refusing to refund. They are a rogue trader.
In response to their 2nd reply, I just want to make it clear that what they are doing is not legal. The banks involved agree with us and have provided a full refund using chargeback. We were sold 2,500 codes that 'WORK ON AMAZON'. The meaning of that is clear. We were NOT sold 2,500 codes that DO NOT work on Amazon unless you take lengthy and costly steps to 'fix' Amazon's systems and take any necessary legal action. 'WORK ON AMAZON' cannot reasonably have this meaning - you cannot be expected to pay out hundreds of thousands of dollars to get them to work. Neither can you be expected to travel to the Parallel Universe in which they might work - where Amazon isn't like Amazon and the codes haven't already been used by a third party.
At the point it became clear that the codes did not work for their stated purpose, this was a fundamental breach of contract. The sales contract was repudiated and Barcodes Talk could either replace or refund. When Barcodes Talk subsequently refused to offer any such resolution and made their ridiculous arguments about the codes working if only Amazon wasn't like Amazon and if only the codes hadn't already been used by a third party (i.e. their Parallel Universe argument), then it becomes a matter for law enforcement!
Update - since Barcodes Talk have been very clear that they don't offer refunds for their useless codes I successfully worked with my bank to initiate a chargeback to get my money back. The banks involved must have agreed with our claim as we've received all the money back.
Response to Barcodes Talk's latest reply - Please provide the link to your "1,000 - 5 star reviews on Google Merchants". Or is that in a parallel universe too? Or perhaps its up to us to contact those 1,000 customers to persuade them to give you 5-stars because Google Merchants is broken?
Final Update - In complete vindication of my claim detailed above, the banks involved have granted a chargeback. We have received a full refund. Please avoid this barcode seller at all costs because they simply don't care that they are selling worthless codes. If you have a similar problem, then you can get your money back through chargeback or other payment protection.
Additional - despite claiming below they had instructed their bank to refund, we were notified by our bank that Bar Codes Talk had denied the claim using the same old excuses. There is no end to their deception! There are good reasons why they have 3 1-star reviews on Trustpilot!
