| || WELCOME|
Thank you for your interest in BarterWorks. BarterWorks opened its doors on August 19, 1996. BarterWorks is one of only two barter exchanges in the State of Arizona that is a Certified Trade Exchange through The Trade Alliance, as well as a Certified Trade Exchange through IRTA.. Both are governing bodies of trade exchanges based in the United States. That means that BarterWorks is committed to follow a very stringent Code of Ethics.
If you are visiting our website as a non-member, please understand that our local membership directory is password protected, and can be accessed by members only.
Members of BarterWorks have access to local members as well as many items from around the world (the Marketplace) offer by many other exchanges members as well. The many exchanges that belong to The Trade Alliance and choose to trade with each other, are what truly makes The Trade Alliance one of the largest offerings of products and/or services to all of our members.
If we can help answer any questions, please don't hesitate to contact us.
With great respect -

THE FOUNDING OF THE COMPANY
Laurie A. Dancer began her barter career as a proactive barter broker in 1991. As a CTB (Certified Trade Broker) she achieved numerous awards in the barter industry, however she was frustrated over the lack of customer service she witnessed there. In the spirit of entrepreneurship, Laurie began BarterWorks in August 1996.
Today BarterWorks features many unique members and is a growing professional barter company. Laurie serves as the CEO and personally oversees the company. She is committed to making BarterWorks work!
ABOUT BARTER AND BARTERWORKS
Since ancient times, people all over the world have traded goods and services using the barter concept. If they needed a tooth pulled, they gave the dentist a chicken. If he didn’t want the chicken he later traded it for the hay he did need. We refer to this type of trading as "Little House On The Prairie" as that's about how outdated that form of trading is!
Unlike in the past, BarterWorks never forces you to take anything you don’t want or need. The goods and/or services aren’t directly traded. They are bought and sold using BarterWorks trade dollars, much like your checking account. BarterWorks is the bank acting as third party recordkeeper. We post all transactions keeping your account current and send out your statements on the first of every month for all activity from the previous month.
Neat, clean, above board and perfectly legal.
HOW BARTERWORKS WORKS
BarterWorks members make a choice to purchase items or utilize the services from our list of current members. When a member makes a purchase their trade account is debited and the sellers account is credited. Accounting is done in real time. A member can check their account 24/7 by logging into their account through the BarterWorks website and using their User ID and Password.
My company has been with BarterWorks for many years. We have greatly enjoyed the personal attention we get from all the members of BarterWorks. I have tried other barter companies and have had success with only one - BarterWorks. They have quality members, not quantity, and that is what makes an excellent barter company different from an average one.
As a brand new start up company and being young, my business partner and I had minimal funds for the things that we needed to get our company up and going. BarterWorks was a tremendous help. We traded for everything from printing, advertising to shirts and a booth at a very well respected trade show. We are truly excited to have this opportunity to be a part of BarterWorks and look forward to a very long a prosperous business relationship.
Because our company has been burned by barter opportunities in the past, we now check out everything and everyone and really do our due dilligence. BarterWorks is the only local barter company that we checked out that passed with flying colors. They may not be the biggest barter company, but to us the biggest isn't always the best. Check it out for yourself. Do background checks and put the owners names of other barter companys into Google and see what you get. Oh boy!!!
