Jacksonville, FL, May 11, 2007 --(PR.com
)-- Barter is considered the oldest form of commerce. In the early centuries, all trade was done by barter. It was a reasonably efficient method where mostly basic necessities were exchanged. Today, these types of transactions have turned into sophisticated business practices adopted by thousands of companies worldwide. Many of the Fortune 500 companies engage in barter to one degree or another. Businesses can trade their excess time, product, food, service, or rooms at full retail to buy (on trade) things that they are paying cash for currently.
First Coast Barter allows its members the ability to get items available for barter through over 100 barter companies. “We have taken trade to the next level by giving members access to goods and services not just in their local area, but all across North America,” explained Chris Benton, president of the company. The technology of the internet allows thousands of members the ability to trade together with just a click of the mouse.
First Coast Barter also currently has an office in Savannah, GA. “We are very excited about launching our Jacksonville office, because we believe this concept will be a great asset to the business community”, says Benton.
The First Coast Barter website lets members search the many available products and services, list what they have to offer, and also post wanted ads. They can even arrange travel accommodations on barter all online. When buyers and sellers find a match, the online system handles the transaction and credits their trade accounts accordingly.
First Coast Barter can be utilized by practically any type of business selling goods or services. “It’s really a simple choice”, says Benton. “If you had to make a purchase, would you rather trade what you do or what you sell, or would you rather write a check for it?”
