How The Barter Trade System WorksIt's not just one-to-one, it's one-to-many.
You offer your extra capacity to the BarterPay community. In exchange, you earn Barter Credits™ that can be used at any business in the network. You get what you need – no cash required.
Most businesses never operate at 100% capacity. As a business owner, you know the costs of downtime and idle inventory. But, when you take an even deeper look, the amount of potential value that escapes is alarming.
For service-based businesses, this means a tremendous amount of time and space expires— literally to zero value. You can’t go back to yesterday and get the value of an unsold hotel room, empty ad space, or an unbilled hour.
For product-based businesses, this means idle inventory sitting on the shelves or in the warehouse that, often, ends up deeply discounted or even discarded. This costs money and completely erodes your profit margin and trains your customers to ‘wait for the big sale’.
Now you can take all this unsold time, space and inventory – what we call ‘spare capacity’ and turn it into full value!

The challenge with bartering has always been that each side must want what the other has—at the same time, and at the same value.
The BarterPay platform solves this problem. Now, you can now offer up your spare capacity to the network and earn Barter Credits™ at retail value. One Barter Credit™ equals one Canadian dollar for valuation, accounting and tax purposes.
And here’s the best part! Regardless of who acquires your goods or services, you can take your newly earned Barter Credits™ and utilize them with any other business in the network to offset cash costs.
Businesses are no longer restricted to a one-to-one style of traditional bartering. Now, it’s a one-to-many ecosystem where everyone is working together to share their idle resources and conserve cash.
As an owner, you’re buying stuff to support your business every day. But, those that you’re giving your money to aren’t spending an equal amount with you. Once they have your cash, they can spend it anywhere.
Choosing to use Barter Credits™ to acquire those same products or services provides a 100% guarantee that an equal amount of business will come your way from someone else in the network.
Want to obtain a good or service from the network but don’t have enough Barter Credits™?
We can loan you Barter Credits™ in advance so you can get what you need now and then pay it off later by bartering your extra products and services into the system.
