The Benefits of Being a Bartercard Continental Europe Member
How to use Bartercard for
better business results
Attract New Customers
Open up your business to a whole new market of customers without reducing prices or compromising your brand. Bartercard attracts business owners and their employees to become customers at each other's businesses.
Reduce Cash Expenses
Bartercard enables you to increase your sales, and in turn, you are able to utilise the Trade Euro you earn as well as your interest-free line of credit to purchase products and services for your business and lifestyle. You are effectively offsetting some of your cash expenses by spending your Trade Euro instead.
Create Strategic Partnerships
Bartercard has well beyond 34,000 cardholders worldwide who are ready to network and do business with you. Through new contacts, business is constantly being conducted through the trade exchange, and additional new cash referral business is reciprocated as a result of new business relationships.
Access an Interest-Free Line of Credit
When you become a Bartercard member, you’ll receive an interest-free line of credit, subject to trading amounts, equity and security. Bartercard members are able to fund the capital growth necessary to grow their business.
Upgrade Your Lifestyle
Take your pick from thousands of holiday packages, pay for new clothing, entertainment, hobby equipment, gym memberships, massages, dining out, home renovations and soft furnishings without spending cash.
Expand Your Product Range
Elevate your business and give your brand a dynamic edge when you expand your product range on Bartercard. Bartercard members have the option to purchase stock from other Bartercard suppliers anywhere and add as a new product to their product line which they can on-sell in the cash and/or trade economy.
Boost Your Marketing
Bartercard offers a full range of marketing support to give your brand all the exposure it needs through its online directory, eCommerce platform, eNewsletters, Trade Shows and networking functions. In addition, you’ll have the opportunity to use your Trade Euro to promote your business to the cash economy by spending on advertising and promotional items, sponsorship and public relations.
Turn Your Trade Euro Into Cash
Buying goods and services with Trade Euro that can be on-sold within your business is a great way to convert your trade dollars into cash. For example, a restaurant purchases wine on Bartercard on then sells for cash within the restaurant; a beauty salon buys skincare products and on-sells within the salon; a sporting club buys prizes on Bartercard, then raffles them for cash.
As a business owner you may need to lease or buy as asset such as warehouse equipment, kitchen equipment, factory equipment or office equipment. However you may not have the working capital to afford the large cash outlay. If you were able to purchase these goods with Trade Euro from another member, they could arrange cash finance through a 3rd Party finance lender. You then hold these funds to use as a valuable cash flow injection back into the business.
Paying Creditors or Getting Paid from Debtors
During tough economic times, some Bartercard business owners may not have a substantial cash flow to support paying some of their creditors. By being a Bartercard member, they have the option to use the trade dollars or products or services that they have purchased on Bartercard as a means to pay all or part of their cash debt quicker.
