Attract new customers

Bartercard’s large referral network allows members to increase their customer base and expand their geographic reach. The new customers generated by Bartercard are on top of existing cash business, and therefore don’t interfere with existing business.

“We have seen a steady increase in customer traffic with very little effort on our behalf – we put this down to being a Bartercard member and being exposed to a network we wouldn’t have had if we were just in a cash business.” Linda Bryan, Rococo Café

One of the keys to sales success is referrals and word-of- mouth marketing. Bartercard members are more likely to spend with other members, providing an increased advantage over competitors. If you perform a good job for a client paying with Bartercard, they will undoubtedly refer their cash-paying friends, clients, family and associates to you.

In the case of traditional cash-paying exchanges, there’s no guarantee the transaction will be anything more than one-off. However, with Bartercard transactions, each time a member spends, it will come back to them in the form of new business from another Bartercard member business.


Reduce cash expenses

Reduce your cash costs by paying for them with revenue generated by incremental barter sales, allowing you to preserve working capital for other expenses and investments. Effectively, you will be able to offset some of your cash expenses by paying with Bartercard trade dollars, therefore saving you cash.

“Bartercard is the best of both worlds.  We find it fits in well with our cash contracts, while helping us conserve cash by allowing us to spend our trade dollars on business expenses.” Terry Knauf, Elco Canvas

The cost to generate a Bartercard Trade Dollar is an important underlying benefit experienced by businesses worldwide. Many fixed costs of producing goods or services are covered through cash sales, meaning that the cost of generating and fulfilling a Bartercard sale is your cost of good or service sold.

Therefore, when you purchase goods or services using Bartercard, although you pay the ticket or market price, you are actually paying for your purchase with your own inventory - which costs you wholesale. In effect, each time you spend a Trade Dollar, you save whatever your mark-up profit margin is!


Build business contacts

As Bartercard is a membership based network there are many local and national networking events that are designed to provide introductions.

“I've met some really interesting and exciting people via the Bartercard network who have already helped me grow my business beyond what I thought it would be when I started.” Joanna Lehndorf, LoveSkin Ltd
Through new contacts barter business is constantly being conducted, and additional new cash referral business is reciprocated as a result of new relationships.


Clear excess stock

Sell excess stock without the need to discount heavily, which can result in reducing perceived value and risking a potential price war with competitors.

“The pre-Christmas trade shows have been a fantastic avenue to move on the seasonal stock changes from our fashion brands”. Margaret Lusty, Lusty’s Showcase Jewellery

By selling excess contra or slow moving inventory through the Bartercard community, members can receive Trade Dollars as payment and then in turn spend the Trade Dollars on goods and services for their business.


Fill business down time

Bartercard helps companies put inventory, equipment and employees to good use, converting downtime and spare capacity (think: businesses who experience seasonal markets) into new revenue which would not have been available otherwise. It also provides a system to put that excess to use in profitable ways.

“Every business has spare capacity from time to time. We want to make sure our staff always have work to do rather than sitting around doing nothing and still getting paid.” Doyle Trinh, Best Tax Ltd


Interest free funding

Bartercard members receive an interest-free line of credit which allows them to make purchases immediately upon joining the Bartercard network. This interest-free line of credit enables members to continue using the Bartercard network to make purchases even during times when their cashflow has slowed.  This way, members can conserve their cash while always having access to the goods and services available through the Bartercard system.

“Having an interest free line of credit meant we could use trade dollars to facilitate the building of the restaurant and pay for things such as plumbing services, furnishings, Eftpos terminals, and now we’re open, we use trade for purchasing wine which is a big expense for us” Jenni May, Amayjen Restaurant


Edge over competitors
