Welcome to Intellibarter.

Most of us have things we don't need, want, use or find interesting any more. What are our options? We could try to sell them; we could throw them away or maybe give them away. We want to provide another choice - Barter! Finding partners to barter with, however, has been a hit-or-miss kind of thing, as getting the word out to others that you have something for trade is difficult. Until now.

By using the internet, we can find people who share our interests, read similar books, listen to similar music and collect similar items. With this larger community, bartering will be fast and fun and will provide you with an alternative to the usual process of buying-using-and-throwing away. And, to help you in your barter experience, we have created an easy to use, personalized way to ask questions of your fellow members.

Through our Expert Q&A; service, you can seek advice and get opinions, and interact with other members of the barter community in a format that eliminates searching, sorting and the frustration of expired postings we have all felt while posting on discussion boards. Now, you can ask a personalized question and get personalized answers without searching or clicking through a mountain of search engine results! Please read our overview to familiarize yourself with our system.

Why should I Use the Barter System?

The barter system has been around for a long time and has many advantages...some are:

  1. Not paying full retail prices (plus tax).

  2. Avoiding listing fees and percentage based broker fees, both of which are common in auctions.

  3. Getting good deals by trading with other individuals and not with businesses and merchants.

  4. Allowing users to trade outside of their areas of interest, for instance, a watch for a digital camera!

  5. You can post your items for an extended period of time. (With Intellibarter, listing is free and items may be listed for as long as you wish).

  6. Conserve resources - by reusing a book, you might save a tree.

How do I get started in the Barter Market?

Using our Barter Market is simple and involves six easy steps:

  3. List everything you want to trade into your Personal Inventory and Want List.

What is the Expert Q&A; Service?

The Expert Q&A; Service is our way of providing a means for our users to seek advice, ask question and provide answers on topics that are relevant to our barter categories. As a registered user, you can pose questions to other users who have designated themselves as experts in an area in which they feel they have something special to contribute. Our users are a diverse and interesting bunch... We want everyone to benefit from our collective experience and knowledge. We think that our Expert service can be helpful in a number of ways:

  1. You can now ask specific questions and receive personal responses to your questions instead of trying to force the search engines to understand what you are seeking.

  1. You can determine how long you want to have the question open to the experts. We've all had problems with discussion boards when the question we post falls off the end of the list!

  2. Our Expert Q&A; service is and always will be free! We think that information should be shared and made available to anyone that is interested, particularly in the areas that are represented in our barter market!

  3. If you are knowledgeable in your field, be it comic books, antiques, literature, camping or basket weaving, we want you to be recognized and rewarded. That's why we are giving something back to our expert. Every two months, our experts will be ranked by their contributions and awarded a dividend. This amount is based on our own funds from our own expert pool (provided by Intellibarter) as well as advertising revenue.

  4. Lastly and probably most important, seeking advice and receiving helpful opinions can really help improve our bartering experience.
