A UPC, which stands for Universal Product Code, is a 12-digit bar code used primarily in Canada and the United States. Retailers add UPCs to each item they sell in order to track their product inventory.
EAN originally stood for "European Article Number," but has since been changed to "International Article Number." The term refers to the bar code used by retailers outside of North America.
Global Trade Item Numbers, also known as UPC/EAN numbers are used by companies to uniquely identify all of their trade items. Trade items include any product that is priced, ordered or invoiced by a company.
