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 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 PDM portal
  • Even if you have several Best Buy vendor numbers, you only need one GLN
  • Your 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
