TradeXchange, founded in The Netherlands in 2002, is a membership-based online business-to-business (B2B) barter exchange network, that assists businesses to increase cash flow, expand the client base, and promote products or services nationally and internationally. TradeXchange lets entrepreneurs trade articles and services by paying with a virtual currency, called the 'trade euro' instead of with euros.


TradeXchange is a private company for traders and by traders based on the Swiss Wir Bank System. Members are free in the choice of whom to do business with; there is no mutual trade involved. Buying and selling products (or services) works the same as buying or selling products by bank- or debit card: the amount is being transferred from one account to another via an online bookkeeping system. No coins or banknotes are involved.


If you want to buy something by using 'trade euros', look for a company in the online TradeXchange system that can provide you with the needed product (or ask TradeXchange for advice). After the purchase, you can pay the invoice by transferring the amount via the online system. In 2015, there were over 10,000 barter transactions in the Netherlands alone.


Currently TradeXchange can be found in more than 200 cities in The Netherlands, but is also active in the USA, Mexico and Belgium. International expansion continues at an impressive pace as business people take the concept abroad. Furthermore, TradeXchange collaborates with different similar systems worldwide.
