Lecture Notes in Networks and Systems
The developed e-bartering system enables people within a society to exchange surplus goods and items that are not needed without monetary payments and share services and experiences. This bartering system aims at achieving social and environmental goals, such as increasing community cohesion and public benefits and filling individuals’ needs smartly, improving the communal harmony and happiness among society members and achieving more green and sustainable society. From an environmental point of view, the system is conscious of the importance of waste risks to the environment and the importance of reusing items and recycling them. The methodology followed for developing the system was the system development life cycle, where the e-bartering website went through the phases of the planning, analysis, design, and implementation. A short survey was also shared among the community members of the United Arab Emirates as a market research tool to understand people’s willingness to accept this system and use it.
