10 Free Barter & Swap Sites

During the current economic climate people are rediscovering the advantages of bartering and swapping. Using items they have or skills they can offer in exchange for what they need can be a great money saving option.

My most recent bartering experience was with my buddy to till my garden. When he was done we gave him a package of steaks from our freezer. We were able to plant our garden and he got a nice meal. If what you are looking to barter or trade for is not available from friends and family here are some online options you can try.

Craigslist has a section devoted exclusively to bartering. Just post what you are looking for and what you have to exchange.

Swap Treasures – Swap, barter, buy, and sell goods and services.

U-Exchange – Barter services and items and trade everything from houses to motorcycles.

Favor Pals – Swap services with others. If you know what you want but not what to give they offer a “hints list” of ideas.

UISwap – Buy, sell, trade, barter and swap…with live chat.

Swap At Home - Post items you don’t want anymore for coupons then use the coupons to get items you want.

Trade Attic – Register with them to buy, sell and trade your stuff.

Barter Quest - Post what you have and what you want and they will try to match you with others.

Swap Online – This site is purely for trading and bartering your services and items.

    1. Whitewilly.com is very cool as it allows you to barter for things you dont want to get what you do want in a single click. Unaccepted offers are actually more valuable sometimes than accepted offers and its free while in beta.

  18. I've switched over to bartering recently for most of anything I can get without having to shell out cash. There are a couple sites out there to use, to connect with people who are looking to trade/swap items or even services (carpentry work for auto work, etc). One of the sites I use is Baarter.com - http://baarter.com

  19. in this world of so many barter sites, here's a search engine which lets you search multiple barter sites at once. makes it easier to find what you're looking for without checking each barter site individually.

  20. I saw on the news a few weeks ago about a website where you could work for what I think they called barter bucks. You put in one hour for one buck. You then in turn could use the bucks for an hour of labor from some else on something you needed done.
    Do you have any idea what website that was. I've googled and yahoo'd but can't find anything.
    Thanks for reading

    If you know what I'm talking about please email

  21. Great website! I actually came across another great barter website its called www.Barterwiser.com

    ReplyDelete
  22. Thanks for the tip on www.barterwiser.com. Very cool site. I like that when posting an ad, you can easily select from a dropdown whether you are offering something or needing something. Really makes it easy. It also makes it easy to see who is offering items and who is needing items whith "Offer" and "Need" appended right to the ad title.

  24. I am searching for a good reliable barter/swap community. My preference is swapace.com (good reputation, established, an Australian company) and viaswap.com (a 'starter' company based on my native country Canada). Did anyone heard of any of these two? Thank you for your help.

  26. BarterQuest now charges you 9.99 to 'verify' your account.

    if you don't verify, it's pretty useless

  27. Anonymous is right. It is useless if you don't verify.

  39. Most of the bartering sites listed are services rather than tools. They make you PAY CASH to TRADE? I thought the point of trading was to not have to spend cash??

    I use http://www.turrency.com because it’s completely free and easy to use! There is no verification fees or posting fees like most of the sites listed by the author.
