Trading Online Voucher Scheme​

Trading Online Voucher Scheme

The Trading Online Voucher Scheme is designed to help Irish SMS improve their online presence.

An estimated 23% of small Irish businesses use eCommerce in a meaningful way, and a staggering 70% of all online purchases made in Ireland are overseas sales. To combat this, the government has started a scheme to get more businesses trading online; the Trading Online Voucher Scheme.

From this, we create a strategy and build a Google Adwords campaign targeting only the customers you want to reach. The aim for our Google Adwords Team is always to get you to the top Google results for as long as possible and generate quality leads, enquiries and transactions for your website through our Google Adwords campaign.

What is the

Trading Online Voucher Scheme​?

The Online Trading Voucher is a grant to help small businesses boost their online trade. Companies can receive financial assistance (with 50% co-funding from your business), along with training and advice, to help increase online sales and reach new markets. Vouchers are worth up to €2,500 or up to 50% of eligible expenditure, whichever is the lesser of, to make the investment of online trading more affordable.

Who Is Entitled?​

Limited or no e-commerce presence
10 or less employees
Turnover less than €2m
Trading for at least 6 Months

How can I apply?

Before submitting an application, businesses are required to attend a Trading Online Seminar with their local LEO on how to use and get the best value for money from the voucher. You will then be able to complete an application form online using submit.com. By accepting a Voucher, applicants agree to report on the success of their online trading based on their participation in the scheme 6 months after and at regular intervals up to 3 years later.
 

What can I use the Trading Online Voucher Scheme​ for?

Funds from the voucher can be put towards website and app development, adding booking systems or payment facilities, online advertising, purchasing internet related software, professional photography or subscriptions to low-cost e-commerce platforms. You can also use the Voucher to access training on topics that will improve your online sales and branding, e.g. social media skills, digital marketing and search engine optimisation. Voucher approval must be gained before incurring these expenses.

Who is entitled?

The voucher is targeted at small businesses with fewer than 10 staff members, a nonexistent or limited online presence and a turnover of less than €2m. Businesses must have been trading for a minimum of 6 months and clear proof of this must be provided to their Local Enterprise Office. They must be located in the area covered by the LEO they are applying to as LEOs are unable to accept applications from businesses outside of their jurisdiction. The Trading Online Voucher Scheme is a competitive process, so eligibility is not a guarantee of approval. Previous voucher recipients may apply again for a second voucher so long as their final claim for their first voucher has been submitted.
