UPC-E - Dynamsoft Barcode Reader SDK

What is a UPC-E?

The most extensively used barcode in the United States, UPC-E, is a variation of the UPC-A. It compresses the unnecessary zeros making it more compact and half the size of a UPC-A barcode. Instead of 12 digits, it only comprises 6. Hence, it is used to barcode smaller products that do not have space for a full-size UPC-A barcode.

Apart from the size, the UPC-E barcode is designed the same way as the UPC-A barcode. In the beginning, it has a digit to designate the product type, which is followed by the code of the manufacturer, product code, and, lastly, the check digit to ensure accuracy.
