Barter or trade is a smart and powerful business tool that represents a solution for companies with available inventory, resources or services. By accepting payment in “trade dollars” instead of cash, a business maximizes their efficiency by increasing inventory turnover or billable hours. Using the trade dollars earned, they can purchase needed goods or services without paying cash. One “trade dollar” is equivalent to one cash dollar. The seller does not necessarily have to trade with the member they had their transaction with. They are free to spend their earned trade dollars on whatever they want or need from thousands of businesses within the worldwide network. This model of round robin trading, eliminates the challenge of finding a trading partner interested in the specific goods/services offered.
