A surplus of excess inventory sites

Another one opens its doors

Blimey, there could soon be a surplus of excess inventory marketplaces for the computer trade - what with Acequote, xbidit, PST's JustXs - and now Barter Trust.

This California-based business is opening its doors in the UK in April, according to Microscope, and hopes to generate revenues of $15m in its first year.

The business premise is based around bartering unsold goods in return for service, as you may have already guessed. Our guess is that it will have a tough time turning on manufacturers and resellers to the concept. But good luck, anyway. ®
