Trading Online Vouchers Scheme Overview

Even though there is currently an increasing trend in online spending, it is estimated that only 23% of small Irish businesses use e-commerce in any meaningful way; and that of all the online purchases made in Ireland, 70% are related to purchases from overseas markets.

There is now a need to encourage small Irish businesses to develop their digital presence to avoid missing significant commercial opportunities. To this end, the Department of Communications, Climate Action & Environment (DCCAE) has launched an Trading Online Voucher Scheme and has teamed up with with Local Enterprise Offices to deliver this Scheme to Irish businesses at local level.

The Trading Online Voucher Scheme offers small businesses the opportunity to develop their website or digital marketing strategy by availing of vouchers of up to €2,500 or 50% of eligible expenditure (net of VAT).
