Although the concept of barter is appealing, the industry also shows weaknesses which has considerably hindered the spread of such networks. Most successful sales are almost solely the result of word of mouth referrals. Efficient promotion must clearly explain what a barter exchange system is, which is not as easy as it looks.

Despite several articles in mainstream media, retail and community barter is still a marginal phenomenon and awareness is still relatively low. Bartercard, ... market research, surveys and trends

In New Zealand, researchers have developed a spray for putting on cowpats that prevents the nitrogen they contain turning into the greenhouse gas nitrous oxide, which is 296 times more environmentally harmful than CO2.
