The Business Trade Exchange (BTE) was founded in 1996 and has enjoyed rapid growth ever since. Since its inception, BTE has developed almost 2000 members and over 400 business categories, with new ones being added every month. The BTE brokering department has in-depth experience facilitating barter transactions, from simple everyday purchases to the liquidation of entire inventories on trade. BTE’s skilled and professional staff help complete transactions smoothly and efficiently.

What We Do
