BarterQuest's Australia B2B Barter Exchange Launched
Easy to Register, Post and Trade.We are the first barter site that verifies users to enhance the security of their trades. Verify your account after the registration and receive 10 POINTS as a BONUS ($10.00 value)!
Running a small company can be very pricey. That’s why a lot of small companies already barter goods, services and real estate with other companies.
BarterQuest has enhanced the design of the website to facilitate its use by businesses for business to business (B2B) and business to consumer (B2C) transactions. It has been customized to allow businesses easy access and execution. Any business that is not operating at full capacity can now use BarterQuest to increase its business and receive value for the goods or services that would otherwise go unsold.
BarterQuest’s unique and secure points system (one point equals one dollar) provides businesses with the alternative to trade or sell their excess inventory and, by using points to equalize the value of the items being exchanged, make each opportunity for an exchange real and immediate. Businesses can form their own trading clubs on the site to select their trading partners and localize their transactions. We are focusing on businesses in Australia as we ramp up B2B.
“B2B barter is a large and well established market,” stated Vince McDade, of BarterQuest Australia, “but until now was limited by old design and technology. By using our proprietary matching and trading engines, businesses can easily find and execute their trades without relying on a broker to bring them together. At the same time, we are the only site that not only introduces businesses with other businesses, but also provides businesses with a bridge to consumers as potential customers. Further, businesses are able to use points, our secure onsite currency, to supplement the value of the items offered for trade and, therefore, do not have to wait until they can find goods or services of equal value for an exchange. Moreover, points can be used by both consumers and businesses to purchase the goods or services which businesses are offering.”
Advantages for Businesses
- You gain more customers in the process because these are not people that you would have normally done business with. You can build new business relationships.
- Joining an online barter club is a simple way to find people in your area willing to barter for services.
- Barter works because you get new business and keep your existing cash paying customers.
- The real cost of products you buy on trade is the wholesale price it costs you to produce what you gave in trade.

- Businesses can receive value for their excess inventory by trading on BarterQuest.
