Starting to receive data
Data can be received via your own application, a solution from an implementation partner or the GS1 interface.
Steps for receiving data
For data receivers, these are the steps to take in order to receive item data via GS1 Data Source:
Apply with GS1 Data Source
You can register via MyGS1. When you register, indicate how you want to receive article data. This can be done in various ways:
- GS1 interface
- Own application (machine-to-machine (M2M))
- (PIM) solution of a solution provider
When you register, you also choose the so-called communication protocol for receiving data.
Setting up communication protocol
Arrange in your systems how you will receive the data and which communication protocol you will use.
Inform your suppliers that you want to receive data via GS1 Data Source so that they can prepare themselves.
Are you a wholesaler? Then - in addition to receiving article data - you can also choose to apply for a supplier subscription. You can then publish the received data to customers via Excel using your own GLN/name.
