GTIN

Hi,

 

Regarding GTIN

 

I sell 3000+ branded items and have trawled through suggested databases and called a few manufacturers to try and obtain these codes.

Most of them just do not appear to exist. Yet i am faced with a cut off date if i do not sort it!

 

I sell central heating items such as boilers and radiators and the brands have been around for decades yet they cannot help.

 

Any suggestions?

First find out how many products fo you have affected for GTIN. You have to define GTIN for those products, if unable to find GTIN for each products the best practice is to keep same GTIN for same categories products. To find GTIN you can take help of google there are many GTIN directories.

Thanks
