Barter means to trade services or things for other services or things, but without using money!

Usually the things that are traded are worth the same amount of money, but no money is used in the trade.

Barter is useful when two people each have something the other wants, so they agree on an amount of stuff and then swap it. This can also happen with services, for example a plumber can fix a tap in a winery and be given a crate of wine.


Troc – On parle de troc lorsque deux personnes ou plus échangent des produits et/ou des services sans utiliser d’argent. Par exemple, une personne qui cultive des tomates peut échanger avec une autre personne qui cultive des concombres.
