Identification of billing documents
Financial entities also use bar codes to expedite their processes in the banking hall. Today, over 1,800 companies in Colombia bill through a GS1 standard bar code.
Financial entities, Asobancaria and GS1 Colombia have standardized the way to structure the code that contains the information of the billing document at the time of payment. This structure includes the amount, payment dates and a single code that identifies the company and the type of service being collected.
You can acquire this code and print it in your billing documents by:
- Becoming a member of GS1 Colombia This membership allows you to have a corporate prefix you can manage internally to assign codes for products, locations and documents, as required. The capacity of the prefix given depends on the total number of references your company have. Go to members
- Acquiring the right to use the codes for 99 years. If you are going to acquire a right to use a code of any kind by the first time, we invite you to subscribe to the system, if you already did, you only need to acquire the right for the codes that you intend to use this time in your invoices.
*The subscription includes sixty minutes of basic support (via phone, email or chat) for one year. By acquiring the rights to use a billing code you also get the code printing quality verification for the three months following the acquisition.
