To share the benefits of growing our Bartercard community, Bartercard New Zealand offers all members the opportunity to earn referral payments.

For each business you refer that joins Bartercard, you will be paid a referral bounty of T$500.

You can provide referrals in three different ways:


General Referral: As a business owner you will often know other entrepreneurial business owners who could benefit from some new customers.

Trade Purchase Requests (TPR): You want to purchase a specific product or service on Trade and are asking Bartercard to bring a new business into the community to enable this to happen.

You are renovating a rental property and need a variety of products & services on trade – gib stopping, painters, kitchen, plumbing, electrical and flooring. If you are unable to source some of these from the existing Bartercard community, activate a TPR and we’ll try our best to sign up new businesses to specifically supply what you need.


Offers to Supply (OTS): You want to supply your products / services to another business, you will happily accept Trade Dollars to entice a specific business to buy from you.

A truck rental company provides us with a list of their competitor’s customers, plus a letter explaining they will happily accept Trade Dollars for truck rental services. Bartercard approaches each of these businesses on the basis we have a simple spending option lined up for them.

Quality information

The more specific you can be, the better opportunity we have to successfully grow our trading community. When providing referrals please give us as much information as you can:

  • Business name
  • Owner’s name
  • Phone number
  • Mobile number
  • Address
  • Why would Bartercard work for them?
(eg. “This business is a cafe that never seems to be busy at lunchtime – they could really benefit from being on the Bartercard network”)

If you want to trade with the business you are referring please provide full details – what, when, where etc.

All payments are exclusive of GST.
