In India, the Maximum Retail Price (MRP) is the highest price at which a retailer can sell a product. According to Indian regulations, the MRP must be marked on all packaged goods to safeguard consumers against price fraud. In practice, retailers often print an MRP sticker with a barcode directly on the product or its packaging. This guide will introduce how to generate a MRP barcode and efficiently print these stickers.

What is a MRP Barcode Sticker?

A MRP barcode sticker is a small, printed label that typically contains the product name, product specifications, MRP, production date, manufacturer information, and product barcode. 

Take a short MRP barcode sticker, for instance, it includes 

● Produce Name: Shorts

● Net Quantity: 1

● Size: S

● Material: 100% polyester

● Color: Black

● MRP: ₹1199

● Country of Origin: INDIA, 

● Date of Manufacturing: May-2022

● Name and Address of Manufacturer: xxx

Furthermore, this MRP sticker features a barcode, commonly in UPC/EAN formats, which aids in the product's quick and precise scanning at points of sale for checkout. It also facilitates efficient inventory management by linking the product to a database.

The MRP barcode sticker enables consumers to be fully informed about the price, and if a retailer sells a product above the MRP, they could face fines or even criminal penalties.
