BarterQuest (www.barterquest.com), a website that supports the cashless exchange of goods, services and real estate, today announced it has incorporated various features to allow its users to form their own trading clubs. The trading clubs will bring together friends and family or people with similar interests in social networks built around barter.
Clubs can be organized by geographic region, by types of services, by an interest in environmental conservation (green), by lifestyle, and by the types of items its users may be interested in. Clubs can be sponsored by businesses that have trading affinities. Organizations that represent special interest groups can form clubs for their memberships. Major club categories include artists and entertainers, books, collectors, gamers and hobbyists, moms and dads, music, seniors, sports and exercise, students, technology, and travelers.
Whether users organize their own clubs or join an existing one, they will be able to easily find what other members have to trade. Membership in certain clubs will be only by invitation of the club’s sponsor (for example, those organized around a user’s friends), and other clubs will be available for anyone to join. Each club will have its own dedicated forum in which members can discuss their trading experiences and related issues.
“While our platform has always provided trading alternatives that are organized by the type and location of the item, now our users will be able to easily find these trading alternatives with friends and family or people with similar interests,” said Bianca Han, Executive Vice President of BarterQuest. “Trading clubs will allow our users to find trades within a community to which they naturally belong and in which they feel comfortable.”
BarterQuest supports the cashless exchange of all types of goods, services, and real estate. BarterQuest provides a trading platform based on proprietary, patent pending technology that instantly matches the haves and wants of users for two party and multi-party trades. Barter is encouraged by a user friendly Web design. BarterQuest is headquartered in New York, NY and is owned and operated by JPM Global, Inc., a Delaware corporation.
