Discover 2D barcodes: Next generation barcodes

One scan. Infinite possibilities

2D Barcodes are set to transform the way our members do business​. A 2D barcode can carry substantially more information than a traditional linear barcode, opening a world of possibilities for Kiwi businesses. Unlike standard ‘QR codes’, GS1 2D Barcodes also go ‘beep’ at point of sale just like a traditional barcode.

Working with retailers and product manufacturers, GS1 NZ is aiming for all retail point-of-sale systems in New Zealand to scan 2D barcodes by 2027.
