    UPCs and ISRC codes


    In this article you will find the following: 





    What is a UPC/EAN code and how do I get one?

    A UPC code is a Universal Product Code (i.e. barcode). All releases through Songtradr are provided with free UPC codes.



    Can I provide my own UPC?

    Yes, if you have previously released your Album/EP or Single and have a UPC you can enter it when prompted.


    Here's how:

    • At the Schedule stage of the distribution process, switch the 'This Single or Album has been released before' toggle to ON (Blue)
    • Select the Original Release Date
    • Enter the Original Release UPC or EAN code
    • Click Save & Continue


    Note: The original release date cannot be in the future of the release date you are selecting for this album.
