How can I assign attributes to my barcodes?

Unforuntely, there are many different issues with answering this question. First off: there is no designated database with all the attributes associated with a barcode. Most retail stores have their own POS software and have to manually scan in new items by their UPCs, they then manually enter many of the information to POS specific formats. The most popular UPC code database is the GS1.org database (GEPIR), however due to the difficulty surrounding maintaining up to date UPC codes, their database is mostly out of date and is difficult for third-parties to query from their systems. Most phone scanning apps use a mixture of Google Shopping / Amazon / Walmart product lists to figure out the attributes associated with a barcode.
Therefore, the simpliest way to get attributes associated with your barcode is by listing your product on one of the major retailers websites. This will allow you to at least scan your product and see results show up on a phone.

The Future

We are partnering with SPIN codes which is a identification code market disruptor and aims to make a centrialized identification system with up to date information. All JustUpc purchases will get awarded an equal amount of SPIN codes for free to accelerate this market adoption. If you order UPC codes today, keep an eye out for an email from us in the future with your SPIN codes.
