What is Bartercard?

Bartercard is a simple, flexible barter system that converts slow moving stock, downtime, spare capacity or vacant seats into extra sales.

Bartercard is a business-to-business trade exchange with 54,000 cardholders who barter-trade over €400m annually with 75 offices around the world and over 600 staff serving our members.

Since the launch of Bartercard in 1991, it has revolutionised the way businesses manage cash flow. Bartercard’s world-leading trade exchange system now enables businesses in four continents to benefit from the cashless economy of barter. Bartercard connects businesses in a new marketplace where members develop new connections with each other.
