  1. Hi,

    Im suprised you have so much interset in these new fly by night here are established companies like ITEX, who have been around for 30 years and have 50,000 members. The way smarter barter works is risky since you dont know who your trading with or if he is good at his service. I am opening a new ITEX office in Santa Barbara to add to our 9 franchises in SOCAL. How can I get this kind of press?
