About Barter / Frequently Asked Questions

If you would like to conserve cash and barter your services or products with other local businesses, joining The Barter Club can help.

How Does Barter Work?
Barter Club members offer their goods and services to other members for barter dollars "like cash" which they can spend back with any Barter Club business they want. Barter dollars go into an account like a bank which can be saved and spent just like real money.

Example: A pizza parlor sells a pizza to a member for $20.00 in barter. Now the pizza parlor can spend their $20.00 at the ice cream parlor, or get a hair cut or save the dollars for larger purchases or other items.

Barter Club Member Benefits

What's The Advantage? Why Barter?
We have a built in customer base for your business. We bring everyone new customers, more business, referrals, and more.

When businesses can trade their products and services for other goods and services they come out ahead because they get these other goods for their cost of goods and services or wholesale.

Example: The pizza owner sells $100 worth of pizza and drinks which maybe costs $30. He then buys $100 worth of tires. He truly spent %30, his cost of the food and drinks. Everyone profits when they buy wholesale. Other benefits include: promotion, advertising, and conserving cash. We do the accounting, and it's a fun way to do business.
Large Membership Base

Including more than 300 businesses featuring superior services and value, professional skills and top quality merchandise. Our members include great family restaurants, professional services, home & garden needs, vehicle repair, services and parts, fine art & crafts, vacation rentals, pet services, recreation & family fun.....

Members of The Barter Club use barter to increase their sales, as they enjoy a broad network with other community members, and gain many benefits offered through the Club.

What Are The Tax Implications of Using Barter?
The Barter Club, Inc. sends in a 1099b form and only reports the barter portion of each sale. The Barter Club does not fill out 1099b forms for corporations as they are exempt. Members can deduct all barter purchases made for their business. Just like cash.

What Barter Members Are Saying

"It's been the cheapest form of advertising for us and we have lots of new loyal customers."
~ Keith Miller - Subway, Auburn

"We have five kids and cash flow is always an issue being self-employed. It's been great having the ability to get new tires on the mini van or take the kids out to dinner or get contact lenses on barter when money is tight. It's also nice meeting other business owners in my area and introducing our company and services. We're very happy that we joined The Barter Club."
~ Rick & Kristi Tracewell - Tracewell MediaTracewell Entertainment, Grass Valley

"Over 35% of my business in the last five years has come from the Barter Club. I have lots of referrals too!"
