How Bartering Works
The TradeFirst community buys & sells goods and services from each other without spending any cash. Our members use our own private internal currency, the TradeFirst trade dollar. Businesses earn trade dollars (instead of cash) that are deposited into their account. They then have the ability to purchase goods and services from other members utilizing their trade dollars.
In the United States approximately 500,000 businesses are involved in barter exchanges. Barter exchange systems can provide new sales and higher volumes of business. Utilizing barter, a business can take down time or idle inventory and turn it into new revenue. TradeFirst.com can help conserve cash for essential expenditures, and convert unproductive assets into real value.
