Lets Get Digital
Following the recent chamber webinar “Build, launch and Grow your online store”, with expert Michelle Duffy Rudden, we wanted to provide additional resources to help local business further grow and develop their stores. Remember how easy it is – 4 steps.
Register to receive your “Trading Online Voucher”
The voucher is a financial incentive to small businesses to develop or enhance their ability to trade online. Under the scheme a qualifying business may apply for funding to a maximum value of €2,500 or 90% of eligible expenditure (exclusive of VAT), whichever is the lesser. Following approval of their application, a successful applicant can engage suppliers and upon completion of the work, submit a request for payment to the LEO in line with the terms and conditions of their voucher.
NB- remember that you can go ahead and start your free trial with Shopify while you wait for your voucher approval.
