Barter Is Simple! Trade what you have for what you need.

The Kentuckiana Trade Exchange enables your business to trade what you have with a whole network of businesses across Kentuckiana. We issue trade credits (KTE$) for these purchases which you can then spend for what you or your business needs in our network. We're the local third-party record-keeper of those purchases. We enable that trading activity with our mobile apps, website and even via simple text messages.

Barter is use by everyone, from the plumber down the street to large multi-national companies, to find new customers, have better buying power and increase cash flow.
