      • A winning edge over your competition

Although most people associate the word barter with the exchange of products and services, the true definition of a Trade Exchange  is working with secondary capital. Or as I call it,  “using money you’ve already spent”.  We are actually exchanging or recycling what we have for what we want.  The most effective way to transact business in this way is through an organized trade exchange and electronically maintaining a debit credit account for the normal established retail value of your products or services bought and sold.

Organized Trade (bartering) allows you to obtain the goods and service you use for your business everyday by leveraging your excess business capacity, stagnant  inventory or vacant space, all without using cash. It allows you to use deposit your excess business capacity or inventory into a Trade Bank and then make withdrawals for the everyday exspenses you currently pay cash for.  The Trade Exchange will find you new customers that will pay you in trade currency and allow you to put those hard earned cash dollars back into your bank account for growing your business.  Why not use the money you have already spent to access products or services  you want or need for your business and personal needs.

What are the Benefits?

Often in a business we suffer from cash flow issues that prevent us from moving forward with the development and growth of our business. It is also very common for a business to have extra inventory, or available time to work on projects when things are in a mode of slow growth.

A well run Trade Exchange gives you a competitive advantage to sell your products or services within the network allowing you to use that new found income to purchase products or services you need without spending cash out of your business.

Bartering has been around since the early days of man and in its purest form is a type of currency based on agreement for payment much as the system that our world economy is based.
