Bartercard enables SMEs to use Trade Dollars, not cash, to pay for the exchange of goods and services

How Bartercard works

Bartercard enables SMEs to use trade dollars, not cash, to pay for the exchange of goods and services


  1. Winery has $1,000 of excess stock
  2. Restaurant purchases wine with T$1,000
  3. Winery uses T$800 on plumbing services
  4. Plumber dines at restaurant and spends T$250

In this example the winery moves the excess stock and saves the restaurant from spending cash. The winery then utilises the trade dollars for business expenses such as plumbing services or repairs saving on cash expenses.

This demonstrates the power of trading loops in Bartercard. While one business sells a product for Bartercard trade dollars, another business is saving cash, and the loop continues…

“Most business owners will know how expensive it is to relocate, but Bartercard saved me $40,000 on dismantling my old salon and establishing a new premises in Hastings. I used Bartercard to offset the cash cost of the architectural plans, installing the new framework and fit out, painting, flooring, new signage, advertising, electrical work and plumbing, paying for these with trade dollars instead of cash.”

“Bartercard attracts new customers and gives our brand exposure in the cash market. One Bartercard retailer in New Zealand bought $3,000 of our product which he sells to cash paying customers. We’ve also created partnerships with businesses we’ve met through the Bartercard network who endorse our products to their clients”


Ryan Kirkham

“On average our sales have jumped by approximately $40,000 per year with Bartercard, as it attracts customers you wouldn’t have without the card.”
