A service exchange or time bank is a network of individual, organizational and business 'members' that provide services, track and bank their hours and then spend those hours to get their own needs met. A service exchange is NOT a barter network, since nothing is 'exchanged'. One 'member' provides a friendly, neighborly favor to another and records the time they spent doing so.
We've completely upgraded the software of the "Creative Exchange TimeBank" to a whole new system provided by hOurworld. All previous exchanges, hours, and profile information has been seamlessly converted into the new software. As part of this fresh new start We will be giving members a chance to vote for a new TimeBank name. In the meantime we are rolling with "St. Louis Time Trade".
hOurworld has a number of new and exciting features!! For starters there is MOBILE PHONE APP!! You can pretty much do everything on the app that you could do on your computer. This software also gives you the ability to endorse other members and leave feedback on the services they provide. We also have the capability to connect and trade with other TimeBanks around the city, country, and world. There are a couple of timebanks in the St. Louis area who are excited about partnering with us, namely the Cowry Collective and the More TimeBank. And perhaps my personal favorite new feature is the ability to exchange hours for actual goods using what's called an "Item Exchange".
