If you are reselling a product that is already listed on Amazon you will not need buy a UPC or EAN barcode.

  1. Buy a barcode and attach the barcode to your product.
  2. Create an individual or merchant seller’s account with Amazon.
  3. Upload your inventory and add your product to the database.
