Seven Reasons Bartercard will work for you
Members of our network are from a diverse range of businesses; however, every one of our members is using Bartercard to help grow their business in one (or more) of seven ways.
You too can use Bartercard to…
1. Gain new customers
Bartercard promotes your company to thousands of local, national and international businesses who are all potential customers. Every new customer brought to you by the Bartercard community brings new income on top of what you’re already receiving, which will help to increase your profit margins.
2. Grow your business with the interest free line of credit
As a Bartercard member you will receive an interest free line of credit ranging from R50,000 to R250,000 trade Rands which allows you to make purchases immediately upon joining the Bartercard network. The interest free line of credit is often used to help business through some of the tougher times and can be used as working capital.
3. Improve your cash flow
Bartercard adds another dimension to your business by giving you the freedom to accept trade rands to attract new customers and increase your sales.
You then use this additional income to pay for needed goods or services within your business, saving your valuable cash flow for other expenses and investments.

4. Move excess stock and idle inventory
Bartercard is the easiest way to sell your excess or slow moving stock without heavy discounting. If your business experiences seasonal markets, barter provides a profitable way to use the inventory on a regular basis.
We can bring the customers to you.
5. Enhance productivity
Bartercard helps companies put inventory, equipment and employees to more effective use, converting downtime and spare capacity into extra revenue by utilising the Bartercard network as an additional business/revenue source.
How often do you have staff that are under utilised, tables or hotel rooms unoccupied? When you are dealing in ‘time’ – once it is gone, it is gone. By accepting the extra business that Bartercard brings, you don’t miss out on creating value.
6. Purchasing discount
When you purchase with Bartercard you are effectively spending with your excess product or service. Therefore, you buy at a discount based on your profit margin.
For instance if it cost you 35c in the rand to produce your goods or services then for every R100 trade you spend, it really only costs you R35. So, you are in fact buying at a 65% discount!
That is the power of Bartercard.
7. Expand distribution channels
Bartercard members can cost-effectively expand their business reach by promoting within Bartercard’s network. Bartercard has 24,000 businesses worldwide and 55,000 cardholders. This provides Bartercard members with strong marketing and trading options through its national and international directory service, plus the online business website where members actively promote their business and conduct business transactions.
