If a supplier provides MPN for it's products but there is no GTIN so is there any way to find each products GTIN with the help of MPN?

 

Thanks for your help.

valid gtin are typically stamped directly
on the product itself at the factory and
the digits are part of the bar-code:
http://www.gs1.org/barcodes/technical/bar_code_types

 

since google does not allow the promotion of items which are not

kept physically in stock by the merchants who sell them -- all that

is usually required is to inspect the physical item for the bar-code.


merchants cannot self-construct or self-assign
any global-trade-data (gtin, mpn, brand) --
there is no industry-standard correlation

between mpn and gtin.

 

generally, any two valid values should be able
to uniquely identify one, single, unique item
within a manufacturer's inventory.

also, gtin is only required for media items.
