WHY DON'T PEOPLE JUST DO THEIR OWN BARTERING?
While some people do, most quickly discover that without professional assistance there can be many problems such as:
Attempting to trade your product with someone that has a product you desire, but that person doesn't want what you have to offer.
Trading with a dishonest person who takes your product but never delivers
his to you.
There are NO tax problems! Your barter transactions are different than if you had paid cash. Your accountant can be your best guide since each individual has different methods of reporting taxes. There are other advantages as well. Advertising is a good example of an item that can be traded for an expense.
Keep in mind, one purpose of bartering is to replace cash outlay, i.e.: the cash normally spent for those items acquire through barter is used to replace traded stock. A $1,000 sale which cost you (100% mark up) $500 in barter leaves your $1000 in cash free to buy inventory replacement items. Your merchandise is almost pre-sold because members will go out of their way to buy from you as a fellow member.
You are never obligated to sell beyond your reserve obligation or credit line, (whichever is greater). In every instance where a sale is made and either of the two are exceeded, you will be made aware of your balance at the time of that call. If you then choose, you may inform us at that time of your intention to halt sales until further notice. You will also confirm this by written notice to that effect. We will effectively follow up with the complete membership and direct their purchases to another supplier. Remember, we must have your written notice to insure the halt of all sales and place your establishment on stand by.
Your cash is worth 20% just to hold on to it. Realize too, some of the merchandise sold to members could have been very inactive in your inventory. In addition, you may well find yourself in a position sometime where the trading of merchandise is easier than spending dollars.
If a member is trading or buying for cash, he will always look for the best deal. We have several clientsin most categories. Just like buying anything, shop for the best buy. We also caution all members against overcharging. We do not want this type of member in our exchange. Most businesses have their product prices and it is very easy for any business person to check to see if a product is being traded at a fair profit.
Yes we will always be available to answer any questions you may have and will gladly guide you with your purchases. We will, in many cases, package a purchasing plan such as advertising programs to give your trade dollars as much mileage as possible. Call or stop in at any time, you will be more than welcome.
Vast numbers of members do not make a successful barter business. The variety of products is more important as well as type.
We try to be selective by bringing into the group those inventories which will balance the demands of our clients. We are able to eventually negotiate a trade deal of almost any size.
It is a very rare person who can say: I don't need anything. Everyone spends money on something. Getting used to using credit in place of money is the only thing you must get used to. Every time you decide to buy something, don't spend money...Trade It.
Absolutely not! It is a smart businessman that spend wisely, and guards his cash flow. We have banded together to realize benefits which make life a little easier. We ask all of our clinets to be considerate with each other.
Every traded item is not marked up to the same margin of profit Conditions vary each time a purchase is made, and usually average out for everyone in the long run.
The opportunity to negotiate a temporary credit increase for a large expenditure is available to you. Just call the office and register your need... we will do the rest.
