What is Bartercard and what services does it provide?
Since the launch of Bartercard in 1991, businesses have bartered within a network of 55,000 cardholders around the world. It is designed to assist businesses in improving their cash flow and reducing cash expenses through the use of modern bartering. Bartercard has taken the concept of traditional barter and with 21st-century technology, has created a trading platform that enables businesses to trade using their products or services.
Bartercard operates within nine countries and has 75 offices worldwide allowing its members and franchisees to establish new business markets on a local, national and international scale. Bartercard also provides an interest-free line of credit, creating an additional source of funding for you to invest in the growth of your business.
The power of Bartercard’s modern-day bartering is that you can conserve cash and reduce expenses by using our digital currency, known as a Trade Pound, to barter your products or services indirectly with any business within the Bartercard network.
