Merchants Barter Exchange began in 2000. Since then, the company has proven a six-year reputation of success, and in 2004 expanded into franchising. By using barter, you can generate significant new business while you conserve cash and clear out excess time, inventory, or capacity. Our motto is 100% trade, 100% of the time. Barter exchange eliminates the drawback of traditional one-to-one bartering. You can obtain goods or services from a member company even if they have no need for your goods or services. Unlike regional exchanges, Merchants Barter Exchange is national in scope, providing their members many more opportunities to trade. Members conduct their transactions with 100% Trade Dollars, and charge Trade Dollar prices equivalent to cash prices. This supports the value of the Trade Dollar and enables a solid exchange for both the buyer and seller.
