Dibspace was revolutionary in providing a barter platform at no cost to its users. This has inspired us to always keep a low fee structure keeping the exchange operational.
According to BizX:
Dibspace is a free marketplace packed with offers and deals from merchants and individuals who buy and sell with a private currency called Dibits.
Dibspace provides an alternative to online classifieds and consignment for individuals and provides small businesses and sole proprietors with another channel to sell their products and services. And because people spend their earned Dibits, they will save cash on every purchase.
Small businesses will find new customers, sell excess inventory and capacity and increase cash flow, all without discounting prices.
All sales and purchases will take place in a private network. Individuals and companies can have the trust and confidence that comes with an interconnected community complete with personal profiles, member reviews and quality ratings.
Starting sometime in September 2012, there have been substantial connectivity/intermittency issues with Dibspace preventing users from accessing their dibits. If you are one of these Dibspace members experiencing downtime, we at Seattle Barter Exchange look forward to providing a reliable cost effective barter exchange network for you!
