How will trade help my business?
Barter is a time honored and profitable form of commerce. Since prehistoric times, people have bartered for goods and services. Today, many businesses, large and small, have rediscovered the advantages of doing business without the use of cash. Nationally, over 250,000 businesses are involved in barter and, worldwide, barter accounts for over $700 billion in sales annually. It is estimated that 65% of the Fortune 500 companies engage in one form of barter or another.
Barter will help businesses increase sales by turning excess inventory or down time into barter dollars that can be used to pay for a wide variety of expenses both business and personal.
Similar to a bank, barter companies use modern technology to record transactions. At the end of each month participating merchants receive a statement showing their purchases, sales, and account balance.
The barter company websites provides information about the products and/or services offered by participating merchants.
The WVCC promotes business to business commerce by working with both local and national barter associations as well as showing you how to trade using your own gift cards.
