In a cooling property market, more vendors are turning to sell real estate through Bartercard, a cash-alternative marketplace to achieve a faster sale.
"Bartercard knows my product and services inside out and can sell my business effectively. Every part of my business has been tied to Bartercard over the past three years - Facebook workshops, computer repairs, business networking lunches and the growing Small Business Expos – which effectively lets me offset cash costs in those areas. Bartercard has helped me secure keynote speakers for my events and offset the cost of accounting and bookkeeping which comes to roughly $24,000 across my events. They have a culture of ‘thinking outside the box’ which every small business owner should foster. I am grateful for my relationship with Bartercard – it’s a profitable one that I’ll keep growing.”

Bartercard helps us reach a new market of visitors and attract extra bookings. Approximately 10% of our visitors come from Bartercard which in turn lets us source high quality items without the cash price that we couldn’t otherwise afford.”
