What is an Organized Barter - Trade Exchange?

The Shoe Inn - Hoover

BARTER: The cashless exchange of goods or services for other goods or services.

Before there was “CASH” people bartered with one another. It is the oldest form of currency.  This is a practice still utilized today.  Some issues with bartering is finding someone willing to barter, that person may not want what you have, or there is an unequal value in the trade.  Who gets the better end of the deal?  Thus, the value of a trade or barter exchange!

Organized barter Exchanges began back in the early 1900’s, when there was a shortage of cash.  It all started with a doctor, carpenter, and a store owner.  The carpenter could not pay his bill to the store, yet still had great need.  

The doctor heard his story and asked if he would come do construction at his home.  In exchange, the doctor would pay the bill the carpenter owed the store.  And that was the birth of organized barter/trade exchange! 

Cash is King!  So we say “keep as much as you can”.  Every business has unsold time, appointments, inventory, skills, even stuff, that can be used to get what you want or need without using your cash.   A trade exchange like Trade Partner Exchange (TradeX) gives you access to hundreds of businesses willing to help you do just that.   Another form of currency!  The value of your unsold product or service just became  your currency to buy from or sell to multiple businesses without using your cash.

TradeX removes the need for 1-on-1 bartering and gives you options to use your new Trade Dollar currency with hundreds of local members, as well as, over 2000 in our affiliate network.  Just like your “CASH” bank, you do not have to purchase from the person who spends with you!  You sell your product or service to a customer, you make a deposit, and you take those “CREDITS” and go to another merchant that accepts that currency.

The IRS recognizes Trade Dollars as Legal Tender since Trade Partner Exchange is a 3rd party record keeper of trade transactions… just like your local bank. 

Preserve Cash!  Win customers over from competitors!  Maximize trade/barter.  Trade Partner Exchange… a smart choice!

The Shoe Inn store

Your shoe size shouldn’t be defined by a single number. There’s length. There’s width. There’s even shape. Your feet support the entire weight of your body, and their shape determines how that weight’s distributed. At The Shoe Inn, we’re professional shoe fitters. We take the time to measure every aspect of your foot. Then, we learn about your lifestyle. In other words, what do your feet do every day? At work? At play? That lets us provide the perfect comfort and orthotic-friendly shoes for you. Best of all, we have styles to fit young athletes, senior citizens and everyone in between. That way the only person who’ll know you’re wearing comfort shoes will be you.

Women’s Shoes

When it comes to shoes, women have a real sense of fashion. So your comfort shoes can’t look like comfort shoes. Well, they won’t. NAOT is our most popular line, however, we also offer Alegria, New Balance, Orthofeet, Dr. Comfort and more. But seeing is believing. Take a moment to view our selection. Click on the logos below to view select styles.

Men’s Shoes

Women may be more renowned for coveting fashionable shoes, but guys want to look sharp, too. We can make your feet look as good as they’ll feel. NAOT is our most popular line, but we also offer Alegria, New Balance, Orthofeet, Dr. Comfort and more. See for yourself. Click on the logos below to view select styles.
