About Us

We all have something stashed in a corner of our home, waiting for the day when it would come into use, and sometimes forgetting about them. Or we receive something new, but the old item is still too good to be thrown away. At the same time, we all want to save money on the things we need. We love to find treasures and bargains around us.

With the Barter Bay application and website, you can buy, sell and trade with real people in your community. Our free app makes it easy to sell what you don’t need or trade them for something more useful. All you need to do is to take a photo of what you would like to trade or sell, write a description and pick your prefered location to meet. You can shop all the great deals that other people have put up too!

Besides connecting people with each other, we also want to connect you to local vendors. Through our trading location partners, we are committed to providing a trusted environment to buy, sell and trade. Using phone and browser location services, we will suggest to you our nearest designated trading location, where you can meet with your trading partner in safety and comfort.

We are proud to be a Vancouver start-up company that minimizes our environmental footprint and help people to live a more sustainable life. We make the second-hand market more accessible to everyone, not just to commercial vendors. Our mission is to help everyone make the most out of participating in the second-hand market and to connect our users to real people and businesses around them.
