Together with the help of experienced Business Development Managers, Bartercard makes sure your business’ excess stock and downtime translate into increased sales.  This is the core of what Bartercard does; it delivers new customers to fill your business’ spare capacity.

Products & Services

Trade dollars are like real cash. One trade dollar is equivalent to one New Zealand dollar.  There is no difference between cash and trade dollars when it comes to recording sales as income or purchases as an expense or asset. Trade dollars are exchanged between members to pay for goods and services.  If you need to buy something for your business, you can use your trade dollars to pay for it when transacting with other members in the Bartercard ecosystem.

The trade dollars you earn can be used in a variety of ways, for example, on advertising, catering, computer repairs, office furniture, commercial cleaning, accommodation, and so much more.  And with Bartercard’s Interest Free Line of Credit, you can use immediately it to help grow your business and attract new customers.  Some business owners have applied for a substantial Interest Free Line of Credit to cover their business’s essential start-up costs, invest in property and office premises, complete renovations, or develop extensive marketing campaigns to grow their business.

Bartercard’s Interest Free Line of Credit is offered as a cash-alternative currency that comes without the interest rates of a business bank loan.

Employee Incentives

Trade dollars can serve as an employee bonus for workers who truly deserve it. Businesses can set up employees with a staff card, and you could pay a certain percentage of their salary in trade dollars, or you could offer them a Bartercard Gift Card.  Your employees can use the trade dollars the same way as you would, to access other goods and services in accordance with their personal preferences. They’re free to choose where to personally spend their trade dollars without touching their cash.

Property Investments

Trade dollars can be used for property investments. When you use trade dollars for a portion of the purchase price, you can significantly reduce your cash borrowings thereby reducing interest costs.  Bartercard’s Interest Free Line of Credit can also assist with purchasing property without the major cash outlay. This is a good way to use your trade dollars and obtain a profitable investment.
