What our members say

Michael EagerR J Eagar

Bartercard trading has increased our business both locally and out of Taranaki clients. We have been able to purchase many services for our business with Bartercard, therefore not having to use up valuable cash flow. Bartercard has been very useful for personal use. I always encourage all business owners to look into Bartercard trading. Bartercard has been very good all round for our company.

Terry KnaufElco Canvas

Our primary purpose for using Bartercard is our manufactured products, such as our archgola-style canopies and shade sails. We’ve found Bartercard gives us an edge when competing for work, and we’ve secured many good contracts from out of town simply by being a member. 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. Being a part of the Bartercard network has undoubtedly had a positive impact on our cashflow.

Having the Bartercard Marketplace to promote your goods is a great platform. The Online Team send out the promotion, and the sales come flooding in. Without Bartercard, I wouldn’t have the additional income (even in the cash economy). It’s all surplus to my cash business, and I wouldn’t change it. I also receive amazing service from my Trade Broker, Debra. She has always been there for our business and goes above and beyond. She provides fantastic customer service, something that is hard to come by nowadays.

I knew a restaurant come bar owner who was doing things a bit tough. He knew I was in Bartercard so I entered his details online and my Trade Broker went and saw him. He joined that day and called me to thank me for introducing him. I am sure you can guess where I booked my next family dinner out!
The bRewards points are a bonus and running a go-kart centre petrol is a premium. I can’t buy it on Bartercard but I can buy petrol with bReward Points. The more businesses we get involved the better it is for all of us I say so make sure you introduce a few mates. If we all do that spending Bartercard just gets easier. I’m really happy to be involved because it’s like a club for business owners.

Russell HerdWorking Feedback NZ Ltd

I joined Bartercard NZ in 2014. I had been a member while I was in the UK so had a good knowledge of how it worked. When I moved back to New Zealand and set up a new business here, it was the ideal opportunity for me join the network - straight away it gave me immediate access to businesses I wouldn’t necessarily have had exposure to in a cash environment. It also helped me preserve cash, which was so important to me in the early days as I was able to purchase many items using trade dollars, i.e., telephone system, accountancy (huge bonus), printer/cartridges, accommodation when visiting new clients/prospecting. It’s good to have an accountant on board who understands Bartercard, and better still be a member, but it’s not difficult - transactions occur the same way as cash purchases.

Kate ShirtcliffSponsorship Manager Waikato Chiefs

Bartercard has a long-standing relationship with the Waikato Chiefs through our Sponsorship scheme. Bartercard has allowed our organisation to approve capital expenditure projects based on a portion of that expense being purchased on trade.
We primarily use our Trade Dollars for accommodation when the [Waikato Chiefs] team is touring, team manager expenses, functions and events, sponsorship events, operating expenses, and some capital expenditure. Bartercard has really helped us to preserve cash where we've needed to, and it's a great support network for other charities and organisations looking for sponsorship.

It’s been a long time coming but I finally spent some Bartercard dollars in Queenstown recently showing a friend from Las Vegas around and we had a blast. The Axis Motel is fantastic. We had incredible food and wine at the Lakeview Restaurant and had an awesome time River Boarding with Sam and Neil at the Seriously Fun River Boarding - even though the river was freezing they’re just a lot of fun to hang out with. Thanks!

Margaret FraserAllure Nails

My business has been a Bartercard member for over 10 years and during that time we’ve used trade dollars to help build the business by saving cash (which we can then set aside for cash only expenses – IRD, rent, rates, insurance etc).
We spend our trade dollars on rubbish collections, computer R&M, we get the studio lawns mowed, we have fresh flowers weekly for our reception area, we advertise in the local free newspaper. Our stationery is printed using trade, we make charitable donations, we take drawings using trade and provide staff incentives. All our studio promotions are done using trade dollars – if it can’t be purchased on trade, there is no promotion!

Bartercard AdvocateHarcourts

We have used Trade Dollars for a huge range of items, from sign writing the cars and office space, to billboards, radio advertising, client gifts, restaurant vouchers and so much more. This has really helped me to preserve cash flow by allowing me to spend Trade Dollars on business expenses.
Being a member has certainly had its benefits. I've experienced opportunities that I wouldn't normally have had - building a network of suppliers and tradespeople that I have won business through and reciprocated business with as well. Harcourts has secured clients that we may not necessarily have gotten if we hadn't been able to take a portion of their deposit with Trade Dollars. You can't ask for more than that!

Renee ManellaConductive Taranaki

We are a local charity supporting kids with disabilities to reach their full potential, and we are so proud to have the backing of Bartercard NZ. As the naming sponsor of our 2022 Gala Dinner, they raised $41,000! We love our local Bartercard community too - it's a great way to network and keep our local businesses connected and flourishing.

Linda BryanRococo Café/Cottage Fare Ltd

As owners of a food/confectionery manufacturing business, a gift basket business and a newly added café, Bartercard is and has been of substantial benefit to our business over those years. Rather than having to spend cash, we were able to utilise our trade dollars on a range of products and services which were usual cash spends, these included tradesmen for R&M, equipment, packaging and packaging supplies, gift baskets and contents for gifts baskets.
Over the years 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. We make it work for us but being in this industry we haven’t found it difficult. Bartercard has allowed not only the business to thrive but it’s allowed us to grow.

Jen BiggsHeretaunga Collision Repair Centre

The network allows us to save cash when buying materials, tools and equipment, and handling staff expenses. The extra work Bartercard brings in helps keep our workshop busy which means no downtime!

Margaret FraserAllure Nails

Being a part of the network is great for advertising. We can quickly get promos out to the members to help us fill available appointments or last-minute cancellations. We also find the trade shows are beneficial in enabling us to turn over our stock and promote the business out to a wider market.
The biggest area of success is we’ve been able to branch out from NZ to conduct beauty therapy training in Rarotonga three times a year! We use the trade dollars to cover expenses such as accommodation, car rental and dining which saves us cash which we invest back into the business to build up the contacts and courses. We have also partnered with a resort spa in Raro who a Bartercard member and they also purchase products from us. This is a win-win.

Linda BryanRococo Café/Cottage Fare Ltd

Our long-standing business had been a food & confectionery factory, manufacturing predominantly fudge and other associated products, with a small factory shop. The dream had been to grow the business into an integrated factory & café and retail shop with a higher profile, to increase our reach to a direct customer. Without Bartercard, we would not have been able to achieve this. With the interest free line of credit, we were able to pay for a large amount of the expansion costs on Bartercard. Thank you, Bartercard!
