We are pleased to announce that we have a new search facility available to assist our resellers with listing products on certain websites.  Our new EAN Lookup (European Article Number) search facility allows the user to input the name of the product to search the database for the EAN number of a product.  This database now contains almost 5 million products and is growing daily.

How does this information benefit a reseller?

The EAN Lookup enables you to type in the name of a product which you might have in stock, but for which you do not know the EAN number.  This is number is sometimes required to list a product on a 3rd party website.

Which information is included in an EAN ?

The EAN includes the country of origin, the manufacturer and a product number. In addition to that it includes a checksum.
