Like to make a suggestion, unless you already have it and I just did not notice it.

As I understand it, with Sub accounts an employer may have his employees set up accounts under him.

1. He can move credits to these accounts to pay employees.
2. Employees may spend these credits in the barter network,
3. But they cannot sell items of their own.

I would like to see something which is sort of the mirror image of this.

An employers would set up Sub accounts under him, so sales people could make sales for him.
1. The owner could receive credits from these accounts from sales people, like a cash drawer
2. Employees can sell products for the employer and receive credits, but only transfer the credits to the employer.
3. They would not be able to buy other items in the marketplace themselves.

I think of these subaccounts being like a “CASH REGISTER DRAWER” for sales people in a business.

Right now VB has the trade card option. But it costs us like 17 cents a transaction.
What about creating our own Card reader program ?
Using these most common two card readers for smart phones
PayAnywhere Credit Card Reader &
Intuit Mobile Credit Card Reader
Write a generic program that will read our trade card & communicate with VB and complete the transaction. A simple way to use your smartphone and your customers trade card to complete transactions. Ideally it could potentially go any way, wifi internet, cellphone provider internet, or phone number modem simulation.
but even just the provider internet would be better than no option.
VB already has an android app, maybe it could just be extended to allow the input data to be accepted using the swipe card reader.
