  Tradefirst offers it's members the unique facility of being able to buy a wide range of needs now and pay later with their own products or services over time in the form of marginal sales to other Tradefirst members. The primary benefits are: Significantly reduced dependency on cash, hence better cash flow, reduced costs by paying with your products and increased sales to new customers.
