VirtualBarter is built to lead the way with great opportunities to help barter exchanges succeed.

There are barter exchange software providers, and there are barter exchange software companies that are much more than just software providers. VirtualBarter offers opportunities no other software company can match, with proprietary products and services to help businesses grow.


Due to the challenges barter exchanges faced with US banks not quite understanding the barter business model, causing them to decline most merchant account applications, VirtualBarter partnered with WorldPay to bring exchanges a variety of merchant account services for small businesses, making it easier to accept credit and debit card payments, face-to-face or on the go.


Bruce Kamm, founder and CEO says: “most banks will not provide a merchant account to barter exchanges, as bank underwriters do not understand the barter exchange business model. VirtualBarter collaborated with Worldpay underwriters to help them understand the barter exchange business model, so that barter exchanges are an approved business type at Worldpay.”


WorldPay, the third largest processor in the US, will review an exchange’s merchant account statement to determine the percentage they are actually paying for merchant services. Most exchanges will find that the 2.2% discount rate quoted by their bank is actually 6% after adding in all of the extra charges and unqualified fees.


Bruce continues: “After switching to WorldPay, we saved hundreds of dollars a month in just the first two months. An exchange can save 30% or more on merchant processing fees with a WorldPay account. For example, if your exchange processes just $10,000 a month, you can save $200 to $300 per month.”


“VirtualBarter is not your typical barter software company. We partner with our clients. We continually strive to find value-adds to help our exchanges succeed. And now, even outside our client list, we’re able to help enhance member satisfaction and increase profitability”, says Kamm.
