Franchise your barter company or not?

June 3rd, 2013 by Alan Mink No comments »

Franchising of many businesses is a major way to get into a business of choice. A company that franchises their business like McDonald’s, Wendy’s etc offer you many advantages such as Brand recognition and protection of many of your assets as the parent company guards fervently their brands.

A barter franchise offers nothing other than great cost to a franchisee. You can start your own Barter company with The Trade Alliance® for $200.00, get access to all the other barter exchanges in the network and trade with ten’s of thousands of members throughout the US and Canada. Unlike a franchise where they tell you where you can operate, what you must charge and you must follow their rules. With The Trade Alliance® we give you all the necessary help to get started, protect your data and proprietary information, give you all the training needed, as required and it is all included in the 1 time set up fee of $200.00, which is even waived for existing exchanges with 50 active members or more. Ask a prospective franchiser what they offer you and what it will cost before you spend large amounts of capital to get nothing more and often less than what we offer. The Trade Alliance®, we are a company that looks to under promise and over deliver.

Why The Trade Alliance® to run your barter exchange?

April 18th, 2013 by Alan Mink No comments »

The first choice for new or existing exchanges to run their business. Why?

The Trade Alliance® is a powerful barter software  and trade system giving members to your site the ability to list items for  sale and purchase them from others who no longer have use for them or have excess capacity to do more business.. If users come to the site and do not immediately find what they need, they can create a want  list so that ten’s of thousands of users may fulfill the request.

This platform supports the most common shipping and payment gateways while also supporting offline payment methods. As the site administrator, you can define your own combination of user listing fees, featured items , transaction  fees, monthly Admin. fees and/or utilize an optional escrow service.

No long term contract and you own your members, unlike some of the Franchise operations who own the members.

Construct your own virtual barter website within a short amount of time using the software’s professional built-in functionality. Create the custom site you want while defining the site specifics you need in order to generate revenue The Trade Alliance® also supports multiple languages such as French, and Spanish. After your one-time small sign up fee, you run your exchange as you want! From that point, you have complete control over the script and your site as the site administrator.

How important is a network like The Trade Alliance®?

February 24th, 2012 by Alan Mink No comments »

In the last 3 years going back to Jan. 2009 total sales just between the exchanges in The Trade Alliance® network totaled $22,053,597, sales that would not be generated without the ability of our family of exchanges to freely trade among themselves. Over $22 million dollars added to the sales that each exchange does within their own exchanges. One of the prime reasons exchanges align themselves with a proven software that boasts a large network of exchanges in the US and Canada.

Enhanced Regional settings implemented

May 27th, 2011 by Alan Mink No comments »

Regions, a newly implemented program is received by all exchanges with great enthusiasm.  Exchanges as well as The Trade Alliance® can create a region that will include any member of any exchange that fits the criteria for that region. Example – A region created is Central Florida. It contains members from several different exchanges that are in that “Region”. The manager of an exchange in that region determines what members he wants in that region, excluding local only designated members or they can include them. A member of those exchanges can now view member goods and services available by all members of all exchanges in The Trade Alliance®, only the members that are within their exchange, or any member that is in their “Region”
