1Finger on the pulse For a Trade exchange to be effective for its members, there needs to be a balance between the viability of the Member offerings to the network, and their desire to replace cash expenses with Trade. For VITX to provide a professional exchange that offers a balanced Trading Floor, we must keep an eye on the level of demand for each service or goods of applying members. This means that at times there may be a small waiting period before a given applicant may be accepted into the network to ensure proper demand for their offerings. Bringing new members to grow the Trade Exchange while preserving their ability to acquire full value for their business offerings is of great importance to VITX staff and all current members.
3The Trading post, and other places to hitch your horse For our Members we have set up an easy to use and secure web portal. Our membership base and goods offered are displayed in a fully searchable online market place called the "Trading Post". This is where Members can post all items, whether they are limited quantity, limited time offers, or services. Browse by category, what's new, or use the search function. The Trading Post is online 24/7 to showcase our affiliates and bring the right buyers for their offering. Our Brokers are also available to help you over the phone to place your ad or help complete a transaction.
2Who's at the party? At VITX, we work with every member to create a list of required business expenses and items that can be immediately paid for in Trade. To be able to offer so many resources, we have searched through Vancouver Island businesses to find valuable trade partners in many categories: Business Services and Products, Advertising and Promotion, Printing and Graphic Design, Automotive, Travel and Entertainment, Lodging, Health and Fitness, Consumer Goods, Contractors, Maintenance, Professional Services, and many more. And if we don't have a Trade available for a particular need, our Brokers and Sales people will work to bring on board a member that offers the required goods or services.
4What does membership cost? There is no start-up cost to become a member, but we do need to keep the lights on somehow. There is a small monthly fee to cover administrative costs, and a small percentage of each trade transaction is charged to the member account each month. The monthly fee will not be charged until you are seeing new business being generated through the exchange. This means that there is no risk to becoming a member! The only time that you will need to pay anything at all is when new business comes through your door from VITX. We look forward to hearing from you, answering your questions, and having you as a member.
