Tools & Building Supplies UPC Exemptions

With limited exceptions, UPCs are required for all major brand products in Tools & Building Supplies. UPCs improve product matching and help customers find the products they want to buy.

Most product packaging includes the product's UPC. See our Help page on Locating Product Identifiers if you need assistance identifying the UPC code for your product. You can also obtain a product's UPC by contacting your supplier or manufacturer.

We understand that UPCs do not exist for some products, including private label and specialized products. For these products, we do not require a UPC. If you sell products that do not have UPCs, please contact us to request an exemption.

Please refer to the following Help section for additional information:
