What is Barter Black?
Barter Black is a web application that makes it easy for Black-owned businesses to get the goods and services they need for their business by exchanging with each other WITHOUT USING MONEY.
The need to address the glaring but often ignored market gap led to the creation of Barter Black.
Our goal is to support businesses like yours in need of professional skills and products working within a budget.
Our platform is for you if you:
- Have professional skills and products
- Are building a Black-owned business
- Are working within a budget
- Are open to other forms of transactions outside of money
Our vision is to establish Barter Black as a viable bartering marketplace. We are envisioned towards becoming the most used freelancing platform in the United States all while helping Black-owned businesses and black communities, at large, thrive.
- Go into debt trying to maintain their business with loans and or credit cards
- Operate their business without the goods and services they need
- Lack the community built around helping each other grow and prosper
Barter Black solves these problems by creating an application that:
- Provides access to a platform where money is not needed
- Provides access to the goods and services you need to help your business grow successfully
- Provides access to a community where other Black-owned businesses have the same goal in helping each other succeed at no cost

Who are our Competitors?
We recognize the presence of companies like Fiverr, Freelancer, Upwork, and others, however, Barter Black is stepping ahead of them and integrating freelancing with bartering with a subscription-based business model targeted specifically to black entrepreneurs. For these reasons, we suffer no direct competition and are the determiner of our own fate. When comparing those platforms to Barter Black in terms of savings, there is no comparison. While for only $99 per month an entrepreneur can barter unlimited transactions on our platform, on those other platforms, $99 may not even get you a business plan.
There are plenty of advantages to using Barter Black:
- Users can get the goods and services they need from professionals
- Users can cut cost
- And users can dispose of any surplus goods they do not need
- ALL OF THIS WITHOUT EXCHANGING MONEY!!!
