There are two ways of getting your GTIN: become a member of GS1 Switzerland or go for Single GTIN.
The usual way is membership. This is how it works:
The other way is Single GTIN: the right solution if you only need one GTIN, or just a few of them.
To find out which way is better for you, first work out how many GTINs you need. The GTIN allocation rules will help.
