• How Does It Work?

  • Getting you new customers that are ready, willing and able to buy your goods or services is our business. We do this by knowing our members. Knowing what they need for their business and personal growth and connecting them with other members to fulfill those needs.

    What makes Trust Acadiana different? Instead of doing business with each other for cash, we bring you business through our managed barter system.

  • Manage your account easily

    • Receive and Pay trade dollars with the Trust Acadiana Card
    • Manage your account online with our secured system
    • Conduct transactions on your mobile devices
  • Trade? I already trade what I sell.

    Trade. If you are a business owner, you may be doing this already.

    You trade your services that you offer for what you need with another business owner. That’s direct trading, but it has its limits.

    • You need to know the business owner.
    • They do not sell a good or service that you need, but you would like this potential customer business.
    • There is a big difference in price for what you have and what they have.
    • It is hard keeping track of who owes what. You have a desk drawer of gift cards and certificates for things that you can't use all the time.
  • Trust Acadiana solves all of those problems

    Trust Acadiana offers a network of over 350 businesses in Acadiana and over 3,000 businesses network wide. Buy and sell with other members via Trust Acadiana dollars under your member account.

    Each member business has an account into which trade dollars are deposited. Once deposited, these trade dollars can be spent with any other Exchange member in the network. Trust Acadiana software acts as a third-party broker and trade bank.

    We have a team that specializes in getting you business. That is ALL we do.

We educate members about what you do and qualify the leads we send to you.

  • We are member owned.

    What does that mean? It means that the companies with representation are protected from operator mismanagement. A Board of Directors, elected from the membership, provides oversight of staffing, management policies and all company financials. This has been the key to establishing and maintaining a healthy economy.
