About Simplicity Barter
“The innovation leader in business barter”
Simplicity Barter (SBI), headquartered in Fredericksburg, VA, is one of America’s most innovative barter exchange companies. Our specialty is to provide your business with the tools and marketing services that will grow your company.
SBI maintains a vast online marketplace where participants, without using cash, buy and sell everything from advertising media and office equipment to brand-name jewelry and luxury cruises.
Simplicity barters membership includes businesses, self-employed individuals and tax exempt organizations. These members provide their surplus to more than 70,000 participants and shop from over $100 million in goods and services in SBI’s commerce network.
Instead of cash, participants transact using credits called “trade dollars”, a legal private currency that is taxable and tax deductible like cash. Simplicity Barter has the same third-party recordkeeping responsibilities as banks and accounting firms.
Members use the Simplicity Barter infrastructure, expertise and services to conserve cash, capture new customers, reduce surplus, increase income and profitability, access trade credit lines, and gain new tax planning flexibility. The bottom line is that you grow your business and increase your profits.
Religious and nonprofit organizations joining Simplicity Barter attract donations from SBI worldwide business membership. These organizations spend donated trade dollars on vitally needed goods and services to further their mission while conserving cash.
Simplicity Barter also provides unique expertise and resources to resolve other business challenges such as helping startups succeed, performing debt workouts and breaking logjams in business and real estate transactions.

The barter marketing plan that gets “immediate results”
Simplicity Barter has partnered itself with several of the best companies in the industry that provide both partial and full barter systems. This allows every business owner to have the benefit of choosing the barter marketing program that works best for their existing business plan, whether that is a combination of cash and trade or full trade.
Our team has developed partnerships that bring our total market place exposure to over 100,000 business owners, which offers our clients a powerful trade network for virtually any resource, product or service imaginable.
Simplicity Barter also offers “Blue Dollars” as a unique way to offer discounts to your consumers to drive more business to your door. However, when these same “Blue Dollars” are used by a business owner with another business owner who is also a member they carry full retail value.
Have you turned away business’s who request barter?
Most businesses already barter, at least on a one-to-one basis. The problem with that form of trade is that each party must want what the other business is offering. If the other business does not have something you want, you have to turn away that business.
Simplicity Barter converts your product or service to a common currency to help overcome the limitations of one-to-one trade. When you make a sale, you get paid in Barter currency, which you can use to purchase products and services from any other active member in the network.
$5000 in business today and you pay no commission
One of the ways Simplicity Barter differentiates itself from other trade companies, is we do not charge a cash transaction fee when you make a sale to a business or consumer we bring to you. We do charge a nominal fee when you spend your trade dollars on products and services you need and even then it is a small transaction fee compared to the rest of the industry.
