About Us

Welcome to our beta site! The Co-operative Exchange is the 4th of the cooperative project quartet that includes The Co-operative Knowledgebase, The Co-operative Register and The New Co-operator. As an experimental platform for co-operatives, our goal is to show what co-operatives and co-operators can do with the Web, cryptocurrencies and other open and distributed technologies. Our team is operating out of Manila, Philippines and everywhere else.  

As an ecommerce site, we are a product sourcing and distribution site for co-operatives. We ship nationwide to all points in the Philippines mainly through the country’s leading express courier, LBC Express. As of now, we do not ship physical goods outside Philippine territory. 

Our preferred mode of payment is PayPal. All PayPal fees are for our account. We accept all major credit cards on checkout via PayPal. This site has a secure sockets layer (SSL) certificate that uses industry standard 256-bit encryption technology. This is the same level of encryption used by large banks to keep your information secure. It is PCI-compliant. The Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard is the information security standard for organizations that handle credit card and debit card information.

We accept cryptocurrency payments thru Coinbase, a digital currency exchange headquartered in San Francisco, California. They broker exchanges of Bitcoin, Bitcoin Cash, Ethereum, and Litecoin with fiat currencies in around 32 countries, and bitcoin transactions and storage in 190 countries worldwide.
