GS1 - DataBar

The GS1 DataBar barcode is based on a family of symbols often used in the GS1 DataBar Coupon (coupon codes commonly used in retail).

These barcodes can encode up to 14 digits, which makes them suitable for GTIN 8, 12, 13 and 14.

GS1 DataBar Expanded and GS1 DataBar Expanded Stacked can encode up to 74 numeric or 41 alphanumeric characters, and provide the capability to utilize all GS1 Application Identifiers (e.g., expiration date, batch, and serial number). These barcodes are often used in manufacturer coupons.
