Renew Barcode Subscription

All GS1 barcode subscriptions have a validity period. To continue to use GS1 barcodes on your products beyond this period, you need to renew your subscription well before its expiry, which is communicated to you through renewal reminder letters.  

Subscription validity period is arrived at based on the table below:

Note: Access to your DataKart account is dependent on the renewal of your barcode subscription. If your subscription is not renewed, your product information in DataKart will be de-activated and will not be visible to consumers through the Smart Consumer app and to your retailers/buyers.
