FAQ - How do I get a UPC code on my CD?
UPC codes are used to track inventory as well as to track distribution and retail sales; SoundScan is unable to track your sales without a UPC Code. You can get a UPC Code from several sources:
1) You can register directly with the Uniform Code Council. To find out more about UCC membership, visit their website at http://www.uc-council.org
2) Ask your record label or CD manufacturer
3) Companies like CD Baby and DiscMakers offer UPC barcodes for a lower fee or for free. To find out more about this service, visit their website at http://www.cdbaby.net
