Save Cash with Business Barter

Think of all the ongoing business expenses you currently pay cash for. Now imagine the power of paying cents on the dollar for these purchases—and doing it with trade dollars generated by 100% new business. In essence, you’ve purchased what you need for your variable cost — the cost it takes to make that “widget”, the food costs of a restaurant, the ink and paper of a printer.  These costs are a fraction of the selling cost—which is what you trade for in GBC trade dollars.

The power of variable cost in barter exchange varies from business to business, but considers how the power of “real cost” translates with these unique businesses:

  • Anyone who bills by the hour – like an attorney, accountant, consultant, creative designer or writer takes their available downtime or free time and turns it into buying power. Their variable cost for 3 hours of time that would have gone “unbilled” or wasted? Essentially zero!
  • A restaurant who barters restaurant meals is essentially using a table that would have remained empty and bartering for meals. Their variable cost is in what they pay for the food—typically 35%....yet they trade for 100% of the dining value – a smart exchange indeed.
  • Trade professionals, like electricians, auto and home repair professionals and carpet cleaners also have very low or no variable cost – they are trading their expertise using open time in their schedules. After you figure in the cost of their supplies and any parts, their buying power is cents on the dollar.

The same goes for manufacture and retail. The cost of goods is typically far below MSRP, yet that’s what they are able to barter for in trade, so getting the goods and services they need in trade is always a bargain.

Here's an example of what you can save with your GBC membership:
