At Southern Barter Exchange (SBX), we wear several “hats” for our members. First, we market your business to our membership, letting hundreds of other business people know that you want their business. We help build relationships between you and your company and other members, relationships that, in many cases, would not have happened otherwise. Once you have made sales to other SBX members, we put on a new “hat,” that of helping you buy the products and services you want or need. And we also serve as the record keeper for each transaction, providing monthly accounting statements so you have all the records you need.
As a SBX member, you have your own barter account that is used to keep up with all your sales and purchases. It works very much like a checking account at your bank, a system of debits and credits that every businessperson is familiar with.
SBX has a staff of full-time brokers to assist you in transforming your excess inventory and time into new sales. Those sales are credited to your SBX account dollar for dollar, just like cash. The resulting trade dollars, equal in value to cash dollars, can then be spent with any of the 50,000 plus companies in our network. You sell to those who want to buy from you, then buy from those who have the products and services you want. All the while, you save the cash you would have spent on those products or services. With this cash, you may be able to open a new location, do some remodeling or just give yourself a raise. The choices are endless.
We know how to help you use trade to your advantage. We’ve being doing that since 1982. Find out how we can help your business achieve faster growth, increased profitability and improved owner lifestyle.
