Wholesale Buying Power With Community Barter Exchange :
Using Community Barter Exchange, the real cost of the products and services you buy through trade is really the wholesale cost of your trade currency earned.
By trading what they have for what they need, the buyer gets to purchase at his or her wholesale cost. In other words, every business owner who sells goods, for example, presumably purchases inventory at wholesale cost (in order to sell at some higher retail market price); by trading those goods for something else they want or need (and otherwise would have paid cash for), they increase their purchase power by the amount of their own profit margin.
