In a barter exchange, members are paid in trade dollars equal to the American dollar. It does not have to be a direct trade. This allows for easier access to new customers and THOUSANDS of useful ways to spend what you’ve earned.

Members can trade for hundreds of products and services locally and thousands nationally. Our Products and Services List is one of the most impressive amongst the nation’s barter exchanges. Our growth is based on member requests. If you want something we don’t have yet, we go after it for you.

A personal trade account and business profile is established for each new member. We track all sales and purchases, a digital platform similar to online banking. Each transaction is assigned a transaction number and a full statement of a member’s trading activity is sent monthly. This makes it easy to manage for business owners and staff.
Business profiles and featured offers are listed online in a searchable directory, the BOTA Trade Marketplace. Members have exclusive private access to shop and post sales offers in the marketplace. Each member is also assigned a trade broker who serves as a sales representative and buying assistant. The broker’s job is to introduce you directly to new customers and assist you in buying what you need.
