What barcode type is best for both ecommerce and stockist sales?

I'm looking at getting barcodes for our product range but not too sure what I need. I know that barcodes can be created through Shopify, however will these be readable for external use? 

We sell on our own ecommerce store, but we also sell to a variety of stockists. What barcode solution would be best for both purposes? Would I need to buy GTIN barcodes?

Hey, @JamesDarwin0192 

The good thing is you have options when it comes to printing out barcodes for your products. We actually have a guide here on our retail barcode labels app that includes information on how to get it setup, along with valuable information on the supported label types (sizes), and printer settings.

If there is anything else I can help you with, please let me know.
