    Default Swapping services?

    How would you say/describe it when e.g. a masseur and a hairdresser use each other's services but money changes no hands?
    I find it somewhat difficult to explain.

    You can call it 'payment in kind'.

    "Bartering" would be another alternative.

    "It's no good using money; let's pay in kind"
    "barter services"

    Are these correct? Other options?
