Bartercard New Service Moves Toward Total Business Solution

Australia�s largest barter trade exchange�Bartercard Australia�has added a new service that should excite its 23,000 members nationwide. The new Members Plus Money program is a strategic partnership with Wilson National, a leading Australian wholesale finance specialist ( It will enable members an opportunity to secure needed financing cash for equipment rental, home loans, commercial loans, leasing, and personal loans.

This initiative is the latest in a series of member benefits introduced since the Australian management buy-out of Bartercard Australia in August 2007, when the new owners pledged to take the organization in a new direction.

The leading product of Members Plus Money is Express Rental Plus, according to the company. Andrew Barter, Bartercard Australia�s National Development Manager, asserted, �Express Rental Plus gives our members access to A$35,000 cash so they can purchase business equipment such as computers, furniture or specialized machinery. It is the perfect addition to our members accounts.�

Bartercard Australia was bought from Bartercard International in a management buy-out in August 2007. It is now 99.5% Australian owned, with almost three-quarters of its share base in the hands of Managing Director Trevor Dietz, Chairman Murray d�Almeida, and Executive Director of Sales/Marketing and co-founder Brian Hall. The remainder is held by an Australian private equity consortium.
