“Barcode” web service
Obtain barcodes directly from your own company system

Anchor Navigation

We advise you to use our Digital Commerce API instead of the “Barcode” web service. In future, we will be investing increasingly in API technology and connecting more and more Swiss Post services to this programming interface. The API interface gives you access to the same functions as the “Barcode” web service. You can also obtain other interesting services to suit your needs.
