Introduction: What is a European Article Number (EAN)?
An EAN is a unique 13-digit number that identifies any product sold in Europe. It can be found on the packaging of an item, or in the checkout process when purchasing online.
The EAN code is an international standard (ISO/IEC 15418) that was introduced to simplify the process of identifying products across borders and languages. The code is used by retailers and manufacturers to identify products for sale or distribution.
How to Create an EAN Barcode
An EAN-13 barcode is an identifier for retail trade items, usually on a product label, consisting of 12 digits arranged in three groups: 6 digits followed by 3 digits followed by 3 digits. The first group identifies the manufacturer or retailer, and each subsequent group identifies the product or package type and its position in a package.

What is a Barcode Scanner and Why Do You Need One?
A barcode scanner is a device that is used to scan barcodes and recognize the numbers and letters that are in them. This device can be used for any kind of scanning, but it is mostly used for scanning products when you are shopping.
A barcode scanner works by sending out a signal to the barcode and then measuring the time it takes for the signal to bounce back. The number of bars in the code determines how many times this process needs to be done before the code can be read.
The barcode scanner has been around since 1973, but it was not until 1980 that they were introduced in retail stores.
