How It Works

FixXchange is an online commercial barter community where products and services are traded for virtual barter dollars. But unlike one-to-one trading, FixXchange members enjoy multi-party trading... When you sell your product or service to another member, you are not limited to receiving the product or service of the company that you traded with. Instead, you can use your barter dollars to purchase anything listed on FixXchange - currently about $100,000,000 worth of products and services and growing with each new member!

    If you have product sitting on your shelves, why not get full value for it by posting it on FixXchange for barter?

    How should I price my product or service?
    With FixXchange you get full value for your products and services. The price you quote to FixXchange members is the same price you would quote to a cash paying client. FixXchange is simply another form of payment, just like cash or a credit card. Remember that business owners are educated shoppers and price gouging is a volation of the trading rules.

  • Do I have to pay income taxes on the sales I make with Trade Dollars?

    Do I have to pay income taxes on the sales I make with Trade Dollars?
    Yes. Barter exchanges are required by the IRS to report all barter sales at the end of each year, and we make it easy for you to report your sales. FixXchange members receive a 1099b at the beginning of each year detailing barter sales made the previous year, and you can also view your monthly statements online at any time. Remember, your business expenses are deductible whether you trade for them or pay cash so discuss your options with your accountant. The goal is to spend as much as you earn so as to not show a taxable profit.

  • Can I sell an item for part cash, part barter?

    Can I sell an item for part cash, part barter?
    The short answer is no. FixXchange Trading Rules indicate that the first $5000 of a transaction must be 100% barter. Any amount over $5000 can be 100% barter or part cash and part barter. However, you can post gift certificates for any amount and that gift certificate can be applied to the client's total at time of service.
