Bartercard is committed to helping Small to Medium Sized Enterprises (SMEs) grow and achieve financial success by facilitating a 70,000+ (member base), trade exchange network that offers dynamic and effective ways of conducting business.
Although the concept of barter is thousands of years old, bartering through Bartercard is the most innovative way of combining modern technology, a community of businesses, and indirect and direct marketing channels to increase your customer base, increase sales, increase profit and improve cashflow.
Our bank manager recommended Bartercard to use and it's certainly been a good decision.
We are always happy to take on more work from Bartercard, we see it as free money.
We have used the trade income to buy vehicle servicing and repairs, restaurant meals, hotels, and even my local pub has now joined.
The Trade Coorinators are always contacting us with new offers and ideas.
We are very happy with Bartercard principle and carry on using Bartercard for the foreseeable future.

We publish several magazines and I'm always amazed about the level of business Bartercard can generate for me. We have made over £50,000 of sales in our first year with Bartercard.
We have never had an issue spending our trade pounds and have bought things such as printing of our magazines, legal services, restaurants and hotels, furniture
It's fair to say that our involvement has been good for Bartercard and other members as much as it has been good for us to.
We will continue to use Bartercard and I'm sure as more and more companies join Bartercard, it will be even more beneficial for us.
Kerry - R Magazine
We joined Bartercard in the summer of 2006 and have found a number of opportunities to trade during our membership – both for the event management business and the training consultancy.
The process does rely on members being willing to trade, within their own non-cash parameters. The Bartercard team are immensely helpful in getting our initiatives on track.

I first met Bartercard when the local broker was having lunch with a member.
I understood the principle straight away and have been very happy to accept Bartercard members into my restaurant and hotel. These new customers probably have never been here before so it was a bonus.
Bartercard have been very clever and offered packages with The Plough and a Spa and Flying Club. This has been great for us to.
We have made some excellent purchases for the business such as marquee hire, fireworks, cleaning materials, advertising etc. Bartercard have even been able to source a fish monger and ice cream manufacturer which was a bonus.
We also make several personal purchases such as holidays and just bought a day out driving army tanks…
Whether you use Bartercard for business or personal expenditure, it works.
The Plough Hotel - Cranfield
I worked for various IT professional services companies selling into insurance markets for many years, ending up in the City working with Lloyds of London insurers.
Wanted to escape from the rat race (and the daily commute) and started working for myself. It's at this time I came across Bartercard and the rest is history........
I'm married with two kids, 9yr old daughter - Megan and 7yr old boy Hayden. We're all mad Liverpool supporters. Come on you reds!!
