QR Cards, you design and can designate any member, spouse, child, or partner to get their own card, and then using the QR card do transactions, anywhere scanning the card thru a smart phone.

Build your own custom website

July 18th, 2014 by Alan Mink No comments »

All barter software providers have their own template. Do you want your site to look like everyone else’s? With The Trade Alliance we too have a template that you can use but we recommend that you use one of the many website designers we have in the network on trade (currently over 90 website designers) and choose a website from WordPress, Joomla, or Drupal and have them build your site the way you want it. Once you do that we simply provide you with 2 links, one for members to login and another for members to join your exchange. You then do not look like any other barter exchange. Some examples of sites in our network with their own custom site are: www.tampatradebrokers.comwww.valecardalliance.comwww.suncityalliance.comwww.barter-software.net (our marketing site), www.acebarter.com, and www.localtradepartners.com

As a member of The Trade Alliance you have access to many resorts, hotels and bed and breakfast around the US and other countries. t is impossible to list all places to travel but some of the most often visited are: Various destinations in Mexico, Belize, Costa Rica, Southern Ca., Phoenix, Tucson, Virginia Beach, Many locations in FL. incl Clearwater and Orlando, the “Keys”, St. Louis, Houston, and many more. Overall several hundred properties are available.

Members download scrip and gift certificates

July 11th, 2014 by Alan Mink No comments »

Members download scrip and gift certificates directly from The Marketplace to their computer, tablet or phone, eliminating the time to receive them by mail.

Once a member orders scrip or gift certificates they receive an e-mail with the ordered certificates attached that they can then print for use.

The seller then can scan the certificates when they are used and generate a report daily of all certificates redeemed.
