How Bartering Works

Bartering is the act of trading of goods for services, or services for goods. This system of exchange was created and used well before any known currency had come into existence. Bartering today saves time, money, and overhead, while granting access to services that companies would typically pay out of pocket for. Services such as, Window Cleanings, IT Support, Dental, and Plumbing Repairs, are no longer provided for by USD and are now bought with trade. The currency used in trade is Barter Dollars, which are valued the same as cash.

A great example of an exchange, would be a Car Dealership needing an AC Unit repair. Instead of spending time researching a company and paying cash, they would use an In-Network provider willing to accept the job for trade. This ultimately saves the Dealership money, and increases the connection and value with the AC repair company.

Q: What are the advantages of trading?
There are several. First of all, trade produces new business, and allows you to expand your market beyond your cash paying customers. Secondly, trade conserves cash. Instead of spending your cash to purchase needed goods and services, you trade your own goods and services. This means more cash stays in your business for other purposes. Finally, trade puts idle resources to work. Excess time, excess inventory, and capacity are converted into needed goods and services.
Q: How does trade work within the association?
Clients of a trade association use trade credit, instead of cash, to handle their transactions. If a client trades $1000.00 worth of goods and/or services to another client, his trade account will be credited $1000.00. The client then can use these trade credits with another trading client. We are simply a third party record keeper, sending monthly statements to all clients showing their purchases, sales and current trade credit balance.
Q: I already trade on my own, why join the association?
One-to-one trading results in each business having to want what the other has, and they don’t always feel they are trading equally. In our Association, however, everyone can trade with anyone else even if he/she does not want what the other person has to offer. The credit can be spent just like money – on items everyone needs and wants.
