ITEX Barter Canada Lets You Barter What You Have For What You Want!

Do you own a restaurant, but find yourself struggling to fill the seats on a daily basis? Are you a hotel owner who constantly has vacant rooms? Do you own a retail store that has idle stock that won’t fly off the shelves no matter how much you discount their prices? Are you the owner of a media outlet that is experiencing difficulty selling its ad space?

If you have answered “yes” to any of the above questions, you are an excellent candidate to become an ITEX Barter Canada client. By working with ITEX, you can barter what you have for what you want! ITEX clients reap the benefits of having ITEX introduce their businesses to many new customers they wouldn’t have otherwise gotten.

They are able to sell their goods and services just as they regularly would to earn ITEX dollars for those transactions. ITEX dollars are the equivalent of Canadian dollars. ITEX clients are then able to spend their ITEX dollars on anything they want. By using ITEX dollars instead of Canadian currency, they save thousands on their bottom lines and increase their cash flows.

Why would a business owner choose to accept and spend ITEX dollars?

“By conducting transactions using ITEX dollars, ITEX members accept another currency (legal and recognized by CRA) that provides another stream of revenue while having an account in ITEX currency available for…purchases for business or personal use for products, services, giveaways, prizing, silent auction items, etc..,” explains the ITEX information package, “Being a member of ITEX also exposes your company, brand and product or service to a whole new market of businesses that would otherwise not know about what you and what your company does.”

ITEX Barter Canada has actually been around for 30 years. They are the largest barter exchange in Canada, having generated almost $2 million in barter-related transactions. They provide both in-person and online support and even have a mobile app to help you keep track of your sales and the ITEX dollars you generate. ITEX Barter Canada also takes its customer service very seriously. They are intent on ensuring that they cater their relationships to the unique needs of each of the clients.

“We go through a consultation process with each prospect,” explains ITEX broker, Michael Muzzin, “A prospect is typically a business owner. That business owner goes through an educational process with us. We consult on their business and their model. We identify the areas where we can assist them. It’s not unlike MeloTel assessing the needs of their clients. We identify their goods and services that would be a fit for ITEX.”
