The Global Location Number (GLN) is the GS1 identification key used to identify physical locations or parties. The key is comprised of a GS1 Company Prefix, location reference, and check digit. GLNs play an essential role in the Global Data Synchronization Network. GLNs are mandatory within GDSN and they are used to identity data owners/information providers, such as distributors, brokers, and manufacturers, as well as legal entities and physical locations.


  • Your GLN identifies your company within our PIM portal
  • Even if you have several Best Buy vendor numbers, you only need one GLN
  • You Best Buy vendor numbers and user logins roll up to the GLN
  • As the GLN owner, you are responsible for notifying all your trading partners of GLN changes
