Bartercard - Husein Bahrainwala

Bartercard provides business opportunities to members by converting unutilised trading capacity and excess inventory into business opportunities with new customers. It’s world-leading, innovative trade exchange system allows its 10,000 cardholders in New Zealand to benefit from the cashless economy of bartering.  Bartercard aims to increase a member’s business by 5 - 15% and increases net cash profit.

How Bartercard works…simplified

The Bartercard concept uses an alternative, electronic currency (Trade Dollars) that is exchanged between members to pay for goods and services, instead of paying cash. Members then use these Trade Dollars to offset cash expenses within their business.

Trade Dollars are a well-recognised and accepted method of payment in New Zealand. One Trade Dollar is equivalent to one New Zealand dollar for all accounting and taxation purposes.


There are many reasons why businesses join Bartercard, some of the benefits include:

  • Attracting new customers
  • Managing cash flow with an interest-free line of credit
  • Utilising excess stock and increasing occupancy
  • Generating new business
  • Rewarding staff.
