 • How Modern Bartering Works • 

  How Modern Bartering Works

LTG is a Trade Group based in the CSRA that is part of large barter exchange. Our members can trade with each other, as well as members from the whole barter exchange, located around the country.

Unlike old fashioned bartering, where you provide products or services to someone else, and they must reciprocate (providing you something in return), in “Modern Bartering”, members receive “Trade Dollars”, which members can spend with other members in Local Trade Group or the whole trade exchange.

The Whole Trade Exchange:  Members of Local Trade Group have access to goods and services from tens of thousands of businesses nationwide and beyond through our affiliation with the TheTrade Alliance®, a consortium of independently owned barter exchanges!

If you haven’t heard of modern bartering in trade groups, you are not alone. Trade groups have been around for decades and it’s a growing industry.

LTG does many things to help its members. From helping to introduce members to each other, to facilitating trades both locally and beyond, to providing its members with the necessary paperwork and taking care of government requirements.

It’s a way to obtain new business. It’s a way to meet more business people, discover new opportunities, and have some new enjoyment.

Modern Bartering Can Be FUN!!

 • Frequently Asked Questions •.

What are key advantages of Trading? Trading produces new business; when spending earned trade dollars, you conserve cash for other uses.

May I trade only some of my products/services? Yes, you may choose which products or services you will offer for sale on trade. You may also choose not to sell on trade temporarily.

Can trade enhance my personal life? Absolutely. Members can go on vacations, eat out, see doctors and more, paying with trade. The possibilities are almost endless.

Can joining LTG help me earn more US currency? Yes. The more trade business you successfully do, the more likely trade members will refer their non-trade friends to your business.
