How It Works
How Barter Works
New England Trade provides businesses with an alternative currency network by using barter dollars instead of cash to handle your transactions.
How does bartering work with an exchange?
New England Trade works to bring you new sales and increased market share, reduced inventory, and minimized cash outlay for everyday business expenses.
We provide you with an alternate distribuƟon network by using barter dollars instead of cash to handle your transacƟons. You can charge retail value for goods and services in barter dollars instead of selling them for reduced cash rates or having them go unsold.
We act as a third-party records keeper, providing clients with monthly statements that reflect all barter purchases, sales and current barter dollar balance.

New England Trade members will use your services over your competitor’s because of the incentive to do business with trade dollars instead of cash.
