Barter Improves Cash Flow
There are two main ways of to increase cash flow - more sales and reduced costs. Barter does both! Barter allows you to pay for what you need with what you have, thus allowing you to preserve your working capital for other needs. When you use barter to purchase needed products and services, you reduce your cash costs by paying for with revenue generated by new barter sales. When you purchase something using TN Trade Dollars, it will be paid for at the cost of your goods and with new sales . . . sales that would not have happened without Trade Network.

Barter Means No Bad Debts
Trade Network trading takes the hassle out of collections. When you make a barter sale to a TN client, you call in advance for authorization to verify that your client (the buyer) has the Trade Dollars to pay for their purchase from you. Then, upon order completion or delivery, a simple signed transaction slip will confirm the transfer of funds. It's that simple.
