How To - Select a Barter Exchange

Some considerations when selecting a barter exchange are:

  • Compare services and fees of each exchange in your community.

  • Find out how much advertising each exchange does for members.

  • Check the listing of member businesses in the locations to see if they have goods and services you want

  • Obtain a referral list of the exchange members and enquire if they are satisfied with the services they receive.

  • Work out how many members of the exchange membership are currently trading and how many are simply on stand-by

  • Make the usual business and credit checks on the exchange, as well as enquiries through the local Chamber of Commerce.

Once you have this information, you can make a decision and select an exchange to run with.
