The difference between corporate and retail barter is that retail barter works best for small to medium sized businesses that have a limited amount of products or services to offer at various times and have needs consistent with running a small to medium sized business. Retail barter is handled through our retail division, IMS Barter.
Typically, all products and services bought and sold in a retail barter environment are done on a full-barter basis, and members retain barter accounts through which they accumulate and spend their trade dollars on an ongoing basis.
IMS has exclusive access to one of the nation's oldest and largest retail barter networks, International Monetary Systems. This availability provides greater opportunities for IMS Corporate Barter clients to achieve maximum trade value.
