The BIPAD numbering system is a magazine industry-unique program. The numbers are encoded in the UPC barcode on magazine covers and used by magazine wholesaler-distributors and retailers to process the publications through their handling systems. This includes receiving, recording sales, counting returns, and recording sales for future allocations.
The BIPAD numbering system is managed for BIPAD, Inc. on a contract basis, by Harrington Associates, LLC.
