Principle Founder Brian Hall, Principle Founder Andrew Federowsky, Principle Founder Wayne Sharpe and first employee Maree St Clair started Bartercard on the Gold Coast, Australia, in 1991. This team shared a vision for Bartercard to become the world's largest trade exchange and a globally recognised business-to-business brand.
Bartercard now supports 40 offices in Australia and 72 globally who successfully trade on a daily basis.
It was in 1995 that Bartercard International was created to replicate the model globally. Currently Bartercard operates in seven countries in the Asia Pacific Rim, Middle East and Europe with new International License enquiries daily.
In May 2012 the Bartercard International Group was formed merging both the Australian and International entities to make it easier for members to trade on a global platform.
