EAN 8 – 2/5 Supplements

EAN-8 barcodes are the shorter version of EAN-13 barcodes, designed to use as little space as possible. They encode a GTIN-8 identification number and can be used globally to classify different retail products by brand, model and variation, right down to the weight, size, colour and type of product.

In most cases, Top Barcodes would recommend the use of a standard EAN-13 barcode over an EAN-8 barcode. This is because EAN-8 is not compatible with UPC-E symbology and there is no defined method for conversions between EAN-13 and EAN-8. This makes the EAN-8 barcoding solution less flexible and adaptable than its comparative counterparts.

If you need a barcoding solution that allows you to classify and identify retail products while taking up as little space as possible, EAN-8 is the right option for you. Alternatively, consider the EAN-13 alternative. It is possible to add a two-digit or five-digit extension to an EAN-8 barcode, but it is more effective to use the standard EAN-13.
