How to pay for Data Matrix codes
Data Matrix codes can be ordered for a fee. In accordance with Cabinet Resolution No. 833 dated 31.12.2020, one code costs UZS 68, excluding VAT. First of all, the participant in the commodities turnover should debit the account with the amount required to order the relevant number of Data Matrix codes, after which he/she will be able to order the same. The fee for the Data Matrix codes will be credited only after they are applied and introduced into circulation.
The invoice can be obtained via the User Account. For this end:
- Log in the User Account in the labeling system;
- On the left panel, select the Invoice;
- Click three dots to the right of the relevant invoice and click Get the Invoice;
- Indicate the amount to be debited and your email;
- Click on the Order button.
The invoice with the relevant banking details will be sent to the email you have indicated. Once the payment is successfully completed, your account will be debited. Now you can create a Data Matrix order.
How to order Data Matrix codes
Tips on how to order Data Matrix codes will differ depending on what method you will use to apply the codes: by yourself or through the service provider. There are also two ways of ordering Data Matrix codes depending on what printing method you have chosen.
Method 1. Ordering Data Matrix codes to be applied by yourself
Data Matrix codes to be applied by commodity turnover participants can be ordered through the below six steps:

Data Matrix orders are subject to a restriction: at a time, you may order Data Matrix codes for 10 commodity units from one commodity group, 150,000 Data Matrix codes for each.
Method 2. Ordering Data Matrix codes through a provider (printing house)
Ordering Data Matrix codes for printing through a provider involves the below six steps:

Your order may be rejected, if:

In this case, you need to return to the Order Management Dashboard and create a new order, taking into account the past errors.
