Which packages are available
What do you want to code? Do you want to code products, locations, shipping units, or a combination of these?
If you are ordering for the first time, a GS1 article code (EAN-13/GTIN) is the most common.
How many codes do you need?
How many codes you need, depends on the number of products and variants (colors, sizes) in the assortment.
Suppose you sell in t-shirts. Do you only have white t-shirts in one size? Then you need 1 code. Do you have a wider range? Then you need more codes, because every color and every size gets its own code.
If you expect your assortment to grow, buy a larger package now. That is more economical than ordering extra.
