The level of credit given is determined by assessment of the application and information provided. Limits range from £1,000 to £50,000 Trade Pounds and are initially unsecured.
These credit limits are reviewed regularly by Bartercard's Credit department and can be extended depending upon the member's trading history within the Exchange. Members can also apply at any time to be considered for a credit limit increase.
This interest free line of credit enables members to continue using the Bartercard network to make purchases even during times when their cashflow has slowed. This way, members can conserve their cash while always having access to the goods and services available through the Bartercard system.
