Ok let me start by explaining ITEX. It is a barter system network that tries to have a company for every field. You spend itex dollars or write an itex check. It all sounds so easy and ideal, but then you actually try to spend some itex money. First of all you must tell the company that you are in itex, If you get a call back consider yourself lucky. Then be prepared to pay double or close to it, all the while being treated like you are a piece of trash for having itex currency. I am completely fed up with this joke of a ""community"". There are a very small fraction of itex customers that will accept itex payment with no problems, maybe five percent. The rest have self made rules such as: no itex on products only labor, others dont take itex on Saturday, & finally the ones you can spend it with charge you double because its not real money. Owners please steer clear of this company if you want to save money and time.
