Barter Increases Your Buying Power
I have always thought it would be great to be in the car business, but not because I’d like to run a dealership or work on cars. No for me the great benefit would be getting cars at dealer prices. If you own a business it is a fact that you are purchasing the products and services you sell at a discount. I would imagine that a car dealer would like to buy dry cleaning and office supplies at his discounted car dealer prices. When you barter this exactly what happens.
If you are in the widget business and purchase widgets for fifty percent of the retail value, everything you barter is fifty percent as well. Think this great benefit through. BarterPX brings you a new widget client. He spends $1,000 on widgets that you purchased at $500. You will receive $1,000 in trade dollar credits. Now when you spend those trade dollars you have transferred your fifty percent discount to those barter purchases.
Your Big Discounts Make Barter Better
Now think about this. You have a special sixty percent off retail deal on purple widgets. If you decide only to barter the purple widgets, you now are acquiring bartered goods for a whopping sixty percent off. Using this technique, you could take the strongest buying capabilities of your business and transfer that same buying power to all kinds of goods and services.
Barter Overstocked or Slow Moving Items
Almost every business ends up with dead inventory from time to time., it just won't sell. You can barter that slow moving inventory, those overstocked items or products that were accidentally over-ordered. Place items that you want to sell fast in the Barter PX “Shopping Mall” here these products (that may be slow movers in your shop) will be exposed to our huge national audience. Often items you cannot seem to move sell out in minutes at the barter "Shopping Mall". Further, in the “Mall” you can opt for Featured Item status, which give you even greater exposure to fellow barter network members. When you do this, you have just taken dead weight inventory and turned it into purchasing capabilities.
