Do It Best Corp. GTIN Guides
GTIN (Global Trade Item Number) is the foundation in the EAN.UCC System for uniquely identifying trade items (product and services) sold, delivered, warehoused and billed throughout the retail and commercial distribution channels. It provides an accurate, efficient and economical means of controlling the flow of products and information through the use of an all-numeric identification system. GTIN is the naming convention for the superset of all Trade Item Identification data structures. The four data structures that comprise GTIN are UCC-12 (UPC), EAN/UCC-13, EAN/UCC-8 and EAN/UCC-14 (SCC-14). These identification numbers are used by Do It Best Corp. on products and cases and are a key component of ecommerce transactions and communications.
