Flexible payments: Swapping, Bartering your services for services/products? Jul 10, 2013

Hi there people, I've been looking for a way to avoid the need to use translation agencies as intermediaries and work directly with companies in need of translation services. I highly prefer that.

With this in mind, my thought is not only to provide an alternative payment method, but more to stimulate new partnerships and attract new clients in a creative win-win way. I've been thinking on the viability.

Let's imagine a very hypothetical (and probably improbable client): an airline company. They need translation services for their website and could offer you in exchange for your services, flight tickets on similar (or higher) values.
I would like to know if anyone had a similar experience.
Best to all!
