Established in 1987, Tradebank is one of the largest barter exchanges in the United States. We are an ever–expanding corporation that offers an excellent opportunity for franchise ownership in a specialized niche of the business-to-business marketplace.
A barter exchange is a group of people who have agreed to accept “Trade Dollars” as currency instead of government–issued money. In barter’s simplest form, two companies swap items of equivalent value. Tradebank, however, opens up a whole new dimension. Companies instead offer their product and service through the exchange and receive trade dollar revenue. Then, they can use their new revenue to purchase items or services such as advertising, website design, travel, food, and so much more. All of this without paying cash.
Tradebank completes trades for its clients much like a clearinghouse or commercial bank would do for stocks or checks. As an intermediary, Tradebank receives a commission on each transaction and saves all parties the trouble and process of collection, exchange of goods, or matching. The transactions between companies are converted to barter credits or “trade dollars.” A single Trade Dollar is equal to one U.S. dollar in value and is reflected as balances in each company’s “trade account.” Each business is personally managed by a Trade Broker, who promotes the client’s business and assists with sourcing products and services.
Best of all, barter is a business tool that can be used by virtually every business owner, professional, or anyone that wants to conserve cash and increase profits.
