UPCE Barcode (Universal Product Code version E)

Universal Product Code version E is a variation of the Universal Product Code version A that allows manufacturers to encode the 12 digits product code in 6 digits. UPCE achieves the optimization by suppressing zeros in the product code. If you have a 12 digits product code and have limited space on your product, this is the recommended barcode to use.
