Would anyone Use a "Gig Barter System"??

Would you find use for a "Gig Barter System" for Sellers who want to Exchange/Trade services with each other?

It may help the overall Buyer Experience here if Sellers were able to trade one Expertise for another.

Perhaps SEOClerks can make it a requirement that the Seller "Seeking" to trade Services with another must offer in exchange, a service that is of "Higher Value" to whichever Seller they approach.

The "difference" would simply go to SEOClerks as their Commission.

For example, if you have a service that is $5 and I want to trade you for one of mine, I would have to offer you one of MY services that is at least $6.
SEOClerks gets $1 (which is taken from the "Seeking Seller's" Balance), we Trade Services and can also leave each other Feedback!!

How does that sound?? Anyone??

This actually isn't the first time we've had this idea. Originally I wanted to do a "credit" based system for trading but couldn't work out the details of it. Perhaps a [WTB] section where users can list what they want and what they are willing to trade. No money involved in the transaction and it is up to users to PM each other and complete the trade.

We're also thinking about adding other marketplace items that are completely free (namely domains and website sales) where the winning bidders work out the payment details on their own (although we'd probably allow to you pay for listing upgrades ;)).

It doesn't really matter if it brings us income or not, as long as it helps our community we will consider it. So any idea is a good one!

Just keep shooting them our way. We haven't thought of everything plus we always want to improve and the only way we will improve is with great ideas like this one. Would anyone Use a "Gig Barter System"??

Ok, well just trying to think of a way to make it worth their while to implement such a system. Cuz I doubt they'll do it for $0.00

But that would be cool!!

hi,

it's good idea, but where to find this feature? and about the 1$ the seeker pay it or what?

Because the seeker is not the only person in the world who exists. That's like winning a car on a Game Show and asking "how come the winner pay taxes on something that was given for free?"

Barter means exchange of gigs where no one pays each other.So SEOclerk will not get fee too.I think this platform is not meant for barter system.

Yes,

I would be very interested in this, i think it should be a extra option but the problem is, how does SEO clerks get a % but yes I would surely do this!

What if though on each side has to pay the % of the gig split, that would not be to hard to implement into this system.

That's a good idea and it may work. But it will be ok, for higher bids?
