Converting spare capacity into full value for businesses.
Every business wrestles with unsold time, space and inventory. We wanted to minimize this ‘waste’ and create real value that boosted cash flow and charitable giving.
Small and medium-sized businesses fuel our economy. We saw that managing the balance between supply and demand often resulted in unused capacity that was going to waste. We knew that if that could be converted into value through an organized bartering platform, we could unlock a new revenue stream that would help improve cash flow for all businesses.
We also knew this could benefit charities. As a proud Social Impact Enterprise, our goal is to make our communities better. By enabling businesses to turn some of that ‘waste’ into charitable donations, we could offer an enormous opportunity to help them make a substantial impact in their communities without having to use cash.
To provide small and medium-sized businesses an easy, revolutionary way of exchanging excess inventory, time or space for products or services they need – enhancing their profitability and at the same time creating a new budget to be able to support their local communities.
We believe in finding a better way to do business. And we believe in the value and power of people. By embracing innovative ideas—pursuing them passionately, and executing them with integrity – we can create enormous benefits for people, businesses, and our communities.
Our Core Values
Grit is passion and perseverance over a long period of time. We will never quit, no matter how often we’re smacked down. We have grit. That means we have a strong work ethic and we do the hard things.
We are honest, morally upright and undivided as a team. We have each other’s back. We show we can trust and be trusted.
We always look for the positive in any situation and avoid negative thinking at all costs. A negative mind will never experience a positive life. We recognize others when they do something well and we help each other reach their goals.
Generosity is at the heart of what we do. The BarterPay Community has already donated over $2.7 million Barter Credits™ to local charities.
We are purpose-driven. Our company provides real value to others and because of that we will change the world. We are laser-focused on our vision and we will not waver from it.
About BarterPay Founder & CEO, John Porter.
I’ve always had a passion for business, sales in particular. Sales is about fostering relationships and figuring out how you can solve a problem and provide something to someone that truly makes a difference. My drive for different—for better—is, really, what led me to launch BarterPay. When you find something you know can help people, you want to share it with the world.John Porter, Founder & CEO Get Started
