Benefits of Americas Barter Exchange Membership

1. Increase Sales.  Do you want more business?  We refer it to you--customers you might never find otherwise.
2. Conserve Cash.  Why pay cash when you can trade for what you want?  Save your cash by trading for your business or personal expenses. You can conserve cash by using excess inventories and excess capacity to purchase operating expenses that are normally paid on a cash basis.
3. Reduce Overhead.  Use barter to offset daily operating expenses and reduce overhead costs such as janitorial service, printing, vehicle maintenance, signage, etc.
3. Increase Profits.  Barter increases your competitive edge by helping you move your excess production or business capacity through trade sales while reducing your operating costs paid in cash.
4. Increase Market Share. When you accept barter business, not only do you increase your sales but you take sales away from your competitors.
5. Move Excess Inventory & Fill Idle Production Time.  Every business owner struggles with the dilemma of what to do with extra inventory or idle production time.  When you join Americas Barter Exchange, you have a tool to put that excess to use in profitable ways.  We do this by matching your product or service with ABE members looking to purchase them on trade.
6. Collect Slow Receivables.  When a cash/credit buyer has caused a collection problem for you, offer barter dollars as a method of payment - there are no receivables in barter transactions - payment is immediate.
7. Regain Lost Accounts.  By accepting goods as payment and reselling them through Americas Barter Exchange, you can capture elusive accounts and convert those sales to Exchange Trade Dollars to use as you like.
8. Generate Referrals.  The more you barter, the more people talk about your business and refer new potential cash customers to you.  Barter is an excellent networking tool.
9. Expand Your Advertising and Marketing.  Bartering for your advertising, public relations, website, and marketing communications will bring in new cash customers.  You'll be more visible.
10. Reduce the Cost of Borrowing. Rather than paying cash interest on working capital or capital expenditure loans,  Americas Barter Exchange can extend you a credit line against your future barter sales.
11. Enhance Employee Benefits.  Secure employee loyalty and productivity by bartering for entertainment, medical or dental services, vehicle repair, and other incentives for your employees.
12. Improve Your Quality of Life.  For yourself, your family, your employees.  Many Americas Barter Exchange members find barter enables them to afford luxuries they might not otherwise choose to pay cash for: restaurants, vacations, gifts - Barter helps you treat yourself and those you care for
