The design and marketing of internet barter startups is getting better with time, which is a good thing. A new startup popped up on the radar today: Yerdle.
Yerdle is an online only barter exchange that does not charge cash fees (yet), that gives you 250 credits to spend just for joining. Joining is super easy, they offer account set up via Facebook or Google accounts. The sign up process takes about thirty seconds.
After you login, you have 250 credits to spend, and you’re presented with a long gallery of what is available for trade. Most of what is available is garage sale fodder.
Sadly, Yerdle does little to get past what all of the direct swap websites do. It has a nice polish and looks great, but it is still the same swap family as all of the other sites doing the same thing.
