We're not just a website we're a community!
Since the original concept of "Baratar" in 2011, there has been an evolution of intent which has manifested into an on-going economic and social expression consisting now of multiple projects. Baratar.com has a dedicated social orientation and is striving to promote a viable solution to the economical hurdles facing start-ups and small businesses.
As the definition of "Baratar" states, we are dealing with "sharing of inter economic and cultural values" and it is the goal of this project to build a strong base community that interact and relate to live in a peaceful, abundant, and healthy global community.
Started as a temporary solution to a faulted economic derivative – the monetary system as we know it – baratar.com has been through a long straw of transformative enhancements thanks to a close and fruitful collaboration with a great team of enthusiasts; engineers, economists, merchants among others.
Once online, the flood of interest began to generate. Many communities of interest are showing their adherence to the project with more initiatives to be included as part of an ongoing experience.
This site is an on-line bartering service, where members can access details about other members unwanted items, and list items on the site themselves they no longer need, then make request for wanted goods. Our main aim is to help our members get rid of their unwanted items and enable them to find goods they need amongst each other at no cost.
This site was born out of the insight that many individuals today struggle deciding what to do with items they no longer have use for. We have found that, more often than not, these items are usually trashed or totally disregarded and you know what they say "One Man's Trash is Another Man's Treasure." With that in mind, we recognised that there was indeed a place in today's economy for these individuals, and that place is here!
The focus of this project is on making trade among individuals and communities more fluent and worry free, to challenge and constantly improve the sustainability of the actual value system.
Our staff, is fully committed to insuring that every user in our community is catered to. In addition, our staff is constantly conversing amongst each other sharing new ideas and thoughts to accommodate you. We'd love to hear your ideas and thoughts too! We hope that you enjoy our site and all of the benefits it brings to you.
