Does Alternative Financing Work?
Alternative financing means the exchange of goods and services for other goods
and services needed to run your business, with little or no cash exchanged.
Why Is Alternative Financing Beneficial To My Business?
Trading your goods and services at their full value for other goods and services
needed for your business saves you a tremendous amount of money.
Example: A pottery studio has an excess inventory of $100,000: which
they turn over to Barter Luxury. They wish to purchase $100,000 worth
of national advertising during the holiday season. Because their cost
of producing the pottery is 25% of retail, they are virtually purchasing
$100,000 worth of advertising for $25,000.
How Does Barter Luxury Make Money?
Barter Luxury acts
as a broker when you make purchases through your trade account, and receives
a small brokerage fee for each transaction. In addition, Barter Luxury
services some clients as an advertising and media agency, and for some
transactions receives the standard agency fee.
What If I Can Find A Better Deal On A Product Or Service Than The Price
Just like a retail store, many members also have "sales" and
you maybe able to find products or services at a better rate. Because
Barter Luxury deals only with corporate trades, liquidation rates offered
to individuals are not accepted, as those prices were not in use at the
time Barter Luxury accepted the service or merchandise.
Example: A client would like to use their trade account to purchase
a hotel stay for next week, for which the rack rate (retail) is $250
per night. The client may go online and find a rate of $195 for the same
dates at the same hotel. Because Barter Luxury obtained advertising media
for the hotel based on the rack rate, the rack rate is what is applied
to the purchase of the room.
