Bartercard has come a long way. If you haven’t taken a close look at Bartercard in a few years, it could be well worth your time to discover how things have changed for the better.
From humble beginnings in Australia in 1991, Bartercard is now one of the world’s largest business-to-business trade exchanges, boasting over 32,000 member businesses across eight countries. That’s a lot of potential customers for you to do business with.
Bartercard has become a one-stop-shop for all business and lifestyle purchases with easy online access. As part of your membership, you can now:
- Search for products, services, and businesses while you’re out and about
- Invest in the domestic and commercial property market using your trade dollars
- Pick up some great travel deals, both domestically and internationally
- Use the mobile app for quick access to manage your account
- Earn rewards that can save you money—big time!
Every time you purchase from a Bartercard member, you keep cash in your business. When a Bartercard member buys from you, you can sell at full price, fill those quiet periods, move excess stock, and potentially attract clients as well.
Here’s a look into some of the reasons why people continue to trust Bartercard to help grow their business.
Transact seamlessly with our latest tools
Both the website and Bartercard mobile app allow you to manage your account, instantly process transactions, pay members for your purchases, sell inventory, and view your balances. The mobile app conveniently allows you to trade anywhere, anytime, and find what you need while you’re on the go.
The search function makes it quick and easy to find exactly what you’re looking for, make an enquiry, and pick up a good deal. You can also search for businesses you’d like to work with—or market to—as potential clients.
Through Bartercard Marketplace, you can go shopping for a whole range of goods and services and save cash on your business and lifestyle purchases!
Surround yourself with like-minded business people
Networking is important if you want to continue to grow your business. Every business wants to be surrounded by supportive business owners. A great network can bring in new customers, new collaborations, and new opportunities.
Unfortunately, most networking events are filled with people who have one intention—to sell you their stuff. The beauty of a Bartercard networking event is that members are also interested in buying from you. They know that they conserve their cash when they buy from you, so you’ll find a lot of successful transactions happening at these events, in both directions!
The aim of Bartercard is to nurture, strengthen, and reignite business relationships by introducing business members to each other, and facilitating trading opportunities. As Bartercard is a global network, you can also network with members just about anywhere through virtual events.
Earn rewards for introducing new members and growing the network
The bRewards program was designed by members, for members. When you introduce new members to Bartercard and help build the network, Bartercard rewards you. It could be a simple verbal referral, or go as far as setting up a meeting.
Through bRewards, you can introduce businesses you would like to trade with, such as your suppliers, your business associates, or even your favourite cafe! When they join Bartercard, you’ll be rewarded with points that you can redeem on a host of great products and services from well-known brands and companies.
You’ll also be rewarded by the chance to use your trade dollars with the businesses you introduced, making it a great approach for getting new customers!
