What is a UPC Code?

The Universal Product Code (UPC) is a barcode symbol for tracking trade items in stores. It is used worldwide and makes it possible to track the sales of your release. If your release already has a UPC, please use the same UPC when distributing your release through our platform. If you have released your release already somewhere else, you should have the code. You can ask the code from your record label or distributor. If your release does not have and UPC, we will assign one for you.
