Ottawa Barter was founded by people who were sick of paying high fees for transactions. Some companies charge as much as 14% to buy and sell.
Then there's the monthly cash fees. Barter is supposed to be barter.
We also found that a lot of members were either grossly inflating the price for barter or wanting a cash portion. All our members are honest and do honest barter. If not, they simply lose their membership.
Barter is a wonderful way of turning items you don't need into things you normally would not be able to afford.
Want to get that roof fixed? That car repaired? Go on a nice vacation? I have been getting all my families dental done on barter for over a decade. If not for barter my kids would have a lot more cavities.
Before you spend any money on anything, first see if you can get it on barter.
