Frequently Asked Questions

Q: As a business, is this a normal thing to do?

A: Absolutely! Businesses are already bartering their services every day - and gaining valuable exposure while doing so - they just haven't had an easy way to find fellow businesses interested in doing the same thing. Until now!

Q: Who oversees the trades?

A: Though the final exchange occurs directly between the two parties trading, Barter Market screens all businesses signing up, and we take an active role in ensuring trades are completed successfully. This includes address verification, online review assessment and feedback from our users. Our team is also available to assist with arranging for safe meeting places.

As we take trades very seriously, we will remove any business proven to not live up to their end of a trade. Send any issues to disputes@bartermarket.co.

Q: Will this complicate my business taxes?

A: Not at all - businesses in North America can legally barter for goods and services. Canada treats barter transactions like regular business transactions and expenses, and in the USA businesses report barter transactions with a designated form.

Simply record them as such in your record keeping using their 'fair market value'.
