Uncorecct UPC behavior

Antonio Citati

Recommended Posts

As already said in an earlier post, I would like to remind you that UPC codes starting with 977 ARE NOT a "bookland" barcode. 

Bookland barcodes are the ones starting with 978 and 979.

Codes starting with 977 are of the ISSN (serial publicationms) flavour and are widely used by European publishers (with Panini -publisher of Marvel, DC and Disney- and Bonelli the foremost ones in Italy).

Please correct this error asap, so that we can insert ISSN barcodes without issues.


Thank you

Your software is interpreting 977 codes as bookland, thus the information about issue number is instead considered as indicating pricing information. Example giving: code 9771124223903 80290 would cause the price info being changed to 2.90, while this is the issue 290 of the comic book Fantastici Quattro, published in 2008.
