Q. My prefix is out of capacity. How can I obtain more barcodes?
A. It's not possible to “add capacity” to an existing prefix when you need more barcodes. If you exhaust the numbering capacity of your GS1 Company Prefix, you should obtain an additional one. As your business grows, it may be worth investigating if the additional prefix that you are planning to acquire should have greater numbering capacity. This way, you won’t have to come back as frequently and you may be able to save money over time. Learn more by visiting the GS1 US Get Started Guide.
