Web Design Grants for Irish SMEs

Web Design Grants for Irish SMEs

At BigNet web design agency we believe the next big market for Irish SMEs to address is the online selling space. In order to conduct transactions online your website will need to have an e-commerce section. This allows users to shop and pay for goods directly on your website. Our website development experts can assist and advise you about the various options for an e-commerce website development. Now that the technology has moved on and reliable back-end transaction services from companies like Stripe and PayPal have matured, the time is right to take your website to a bigger market. The World!

Online Trading Voucher

In the last year, Local enterprise offices have recognised the need for more businesses to trade online and this is why they have introduced a new online trading voucher. The web development grant is available through individual local enterprise centres located around Ireland. Some of the key details about obtaining the grant are listed below but please visit your Local Enterprise Office for more details. 

Are you Eligible?

•    Maximum value of €2,500
•    Voucher approval is needed prior to commencing the website design
•    Self-built website designs are not eligible
•    Third party costs only will be considered
•    Website Developers invoices must contain proper business details 

The idea behind the vouchers is to target businesses with a particular profile:

•    Companies with limited online trading presence
•    SMEs (Less than 10 employees)
•    Turnover less than €2m
•    Trading for the last 12 months
•    Business must be located in one of the pilot areas under this phase of the scheme

Expand your customer base with an e-Commerce website

One of the best reasons to develop an online trading module for your website is because it opens the door for your products to compete in a much bigger market but this is not the full picture. The trends show that your customers are shopping online and this trend is increasing month on month. It is estimated that 70% of all online transactions in Ireland are conducted with companies outside Ireland.
