Retail Bartercard Reviews

You're a retailer and want to know how Bartercard will work for you

Do you have excess or slow moving stock or do your sales depend on seasonal trends?  All retailers have to regularly use their experience and judgement whenever they're buying stock to re-sell.  We all know that on occasions the trends may change, new models will arrive and, despite our best efforts, we get left with stock we can't sell.  This leaves us with the tough choice of heavily discounting the stock to get it sold or let it sit idle, hoping that someone will eventually come in and buy it.

For over 26 years, savvy retailers have been turning to Bartercard to help shift their excess or slow moving stock at full retail value.  In a cut-throat industry they've been searching for an edge over their competition.  They're not prepared to sit on the extra stock tying up their valuable cash or resort to heavy discounting, which devalues their brand.  Instead, they've tapped into a new customer base within the Bartercard network to convert this excess stock into trade dollars that they're then using to offset against their cash business expenses.

“Bartercard has helped me turn slow-moving stock into sales and source extra customers, converting to referrals in the cash market.  I bought a lighting and LED company with Bartercard which allowed me to offset 100% of the cash cost, attract a wider range of customers and add a new source of income.”
