    There are some APIs that can get the details of products given GTIN UPC codes, but they seem to be specific for certain countries.

    Are you looking for a solution to work on a specific country?

      Well, it seems a little bit more complicated

      UPC barcodes hold a 6-to-9 digits representing a company identifier that must be unique ; they are assigned by the GS1-US organization (you cannot create your own UPC barcode). Its a paid service with annual fees. The second part of a UPC barcode is a product identifier of 2 digits (for company ids having 9 digits) or 5 digits (for company ids having 6 digits). This product identifier can be freely assigned by the company itself ; this is their own, internal, product identifier.

      So, to retrieve a product name from a UPC barcode, you would need to have access to the product catalog of the company itself.

      Right, what I mean is that there are sites that provide APIs for retrieving known UPC codes. Of course they do not cover all UPC codes used in the world.
