You may have an idea of what Bartercard is – an online system, a currency, a network of businesspeople, a way to move stock and save cash. And you would be right. Bartercard is all those things.
One thing you would not know is that our aim is to be the most valuable trading partner in your business.
That’s a mighty claim!
What does a most valuable trading partner do?
- They promote your business to their network
- They send you more customers to fill your vacancies
- They help you move your excess stock
- They give you ways to conserve your cash
They work with you and for you to help you build a successful (or even more successful) business.
Bartercard has been in the business of helping businesses for over 28 years. With over 32,000 members in eight countries, we got there by caring about our members and the growth of their business. If our members grow, we grow, enabling everyone to enjoy success. That’s what a true and valuable trading partner does.
Giving back to our community
As well as working with business owners, Bartercard is dedicated to giving back to charities, community groups and sporting clubs and by lending a hand in times of need. Supporting our local community is an important value of the Bartercard brand. We believe we are all better together.
Sponsorship is an avenue where we can achieve this at both a local and international level. We are involved in a range of organisations across a variety of industries that highlights our purpose, brand and values in a positive way. Our aim is to raise awareness and to offset cash expenses. Bartercard’s current chosen charity is Heart Kids NZ.
Your business can help too, by allocating a percentage of your trade dollars to your nominated charities so their front-line support can continue.
Giving back to your business
Bartercard gives back to your business too! Bartercard membership enables you to earn bPoints through bRewards – a loyalty program with a difference. Created by members for members, bRewards is a program that rewards you for introducing businesses to Bartercard.
Ideally, you would introduce a business you already buy from, whose services you use, as well as those you would like to deal with; in fact, any business you feel would benefit from Bartercard. Once they join Bartercard, you can continue to do business with them, only in trade dollars instead of cash!
The program is designed for your business, your family and you. bRewards offers you great rewards such as reduced trading fees, store cards from major retailers, petrol vouchers and much more, giving you real savings on your cash expenditure.
As members introduce more businesses into Bartercard, it expands everyone’s opportunities to spend their trade dollars and reduce their cash expenses. You have the added benefit of knowing the members you introduce will be supported to grow their business through the Bartercard community.
It’s a win for everyone!
