How Does The Time Bank Work?

  • On the web site, members list services or homemade goods they are willing to give or receive.
  • Members contact each other to arrange a service and agree on how many hours it is worth.
  • The giver performs the service or provides the goods.
  • On the web site, the receiver records the service, which credits the giver and debits the receiver for the agreed on number of hours.
  • The web site keeps track of each member’s account balance (in hours).
  • Everyone’s time is valued equally, no matter what service is performed or what goods are given.
