If you, or your company would like to get involved, please register your support today http://www.ecai.ie/taskforce
We appreciate that everyone’s time is valuable, but it’s also something that can be given, when spare to others who need support or eCommerce expertise.
The prospects of trading online can be daunting for businesses who haven’t traded online before. In addition, the eCai ‘Task Force’ we will provide support network with leading tech mentors for members, e-retailers and businesses who are experiencing difficulties setting up their operations or services online.
We can offer help and guidance in the following;
Goods that are in short supply or not available due to travel ban’s in the EU
Government Grants for business owners affected by COVID-19
EU directives from the European Union & e-Commerce bodies2015
As an e-commerce community in Ireland, we will answer Ireland’s call in this time of crisis and beyond.
With the high streets greatly impacted and shops closing across the country, many businesses have been looking at their options online but don’t have the know-how to be able to pivot to the changing landscape.
The crisis has escalated at a frightening pace. Already, thousands of jobs have been lost across the country and many as 500,000 could go in the coming months according to Government figures release this week. Consumer confidence has already experienced a sharp decline.
At a time like this, the country’s future depends on us all to respond at scale. In response to this growing need, the E-Commerce Association of Ireland (eCAI) has established a Task Force of professionals who want to help now and we are looking for more companies to join us in this campaign #answerthecall
We are asking all company leaders who have experience in startups, established online services who have been trading online for a long time and their knowledge of the industry could be invaluable to others who are confused about payments, transaction protocols, technology, security and the path from click to collect or your goods arriving at your door.
We are looking for the following :
And any person who feels they can make another business owner feel secure in the fact that online shopping and the set up of an online shopping business for anyone should be and can be seamless and easier than some may think.
Security and initial outlay is always a concern for online business. This can be easily explained, mentored and all resources and tools – some freely available online to get your business up and trading quite easily – IF you know how.
Please share this message with your colleagues and anyone you know looking to get trading online and stay afloat during this crisis.
There are also a lot of Government resources and monetary support – we will keep all that information coming to registered users as it happens and guide anyone needing support.
