About Florida Barter

Want more customers, more sales and more cash? Florida Barter gives your local business the solution you need to succeed in any economy.

As a small or mid-size business, it’s not uncommon for you to sometimes struggle with low demand and poor cash flow. A barter network that offers an alternative currency in the form of trade dollars opens up a world of possibilities for you. Using trade dollars instead of U.S. currency allows you to sell more products and services, and attract new clients while conserving cash for other expenses.

Over 1,800 businesses in the Orlando and Tampa Bay areas belong to Florida Barter. Our members list their products or services in the Florida Barter network and earn trade dollars (one trade dollar is equivalent to one U.S. dollar) when they sell, and then use those trade dollars to buy products and services they need. Our Trade Brokers are on hand to assist members with their sales and purchases. Authorizations can be obtained via telephone, 24-hour auto-broker, online or with our mobile app.

Florida Barter owner and CEO Scott Whitmer founded the organization in 1982 as a commercial trading network of companies in the Central Florida area. Since that time, we’ve grown to become the largest independent barter organization in the Southeast, USA. In 2014, Florida Barter members conducted more than $15 million in trade sales and purchases through our network.

We’re proud that our expertise and experience in the barter industry helps Orlando and Tampa Bay area companies grow and thrive in good economic times or bad.
