Smart Card Exchange: Smart Card News to Act as Honest Broker

Every company at some time or other over-orders or manufacturers an item that remains on the shelf but which has a value to another company if only one knew who that company was. Now at Smart Card News you can advertise your item, be it a small run of cards or a whole factory plant for only 50 per quarter.

Smart Card News will act as a broker between buyers and sellers of Smart Card related products. All that is required is a description and perhaps a photograph of your item. This will appear on a special page at our website.

Potential buyers can then contact SCN with an offer which we will pass along to the seller, in complete confidence and all for only 5.00 (Private Sale) or 50.00 (Business Sale) per quarter. There is no charge to buyers. For more information about this service please email Sheena Stenning ( or visit the Smart Card Exchange page at the SCN website:
