1) He enlisted the exchange's brokers to help him sell his excess inventory at full price for trade credits.
2) He reduced his cash expenditure by paying for essential business services with these trade credits.
3) As a result of 1 & 2, his cash flow is now improved, because he has unlocked the value of his excess inventory and used it to reduce his cash expenditure.
4) If the person who buys his shoes likes his products and services, he may even gain a new customer who will pay cash for his popular items.
As it turns out, the person who bought those shoes is a gym owner, Gary. Gary also sells gym wares in his gym. He converted his excess gym memberships into high-end sports shoes and goods that he can sell for cash at a discount to gym members, making his gym membership more valuable to cash paying members. On their own, Sam, Betty, Joel and Gary would never have bartered with each other because their needs do not match and they do not know each other. But through a barter exchange, it all becomes easy. Think of a barter exchange as a bank for goods and services. Each member deposits what they have in excess, and draws out what they need. What you can do using a barter exchange is limited only by your imagination.
65% of listed corporations on the New York Stock Exchange use barter to improve their cash flow. Thanks to advances in web technology, small and medium size businesses can now take advantage of commercial bartering as well. A good barter exchange can turn your excess inventory nightmare into new business opportunities. Many have already found it an effective tool to move excess inventory, to realize greater cost savings, to improve cash flow and to find new customers.
