What is the LEO Trading Online Voucher?

The LEO (local enterprise office) are giving away 50% vouchers for the trading online voucher! This means you get 50% off a website worth up to €2,500.

Honestly, this is such an amazing initiative and you would be a fool not to take advantage of it. We don’t know how much longer it’s going to be around for!

This voucher can be used for web design, graphic design and photography!

The voucher is to help small businesses with their e-commerce capability, so this means your website has to have some sort of e-commerce feature to be eligible for the grant.

If you’re a service provider this can mean setting up a payment gateway for clients to pay on your website.

And if you’re an online shop, well it’s a no brainer really, isn’t it?!

As with all things too good to be true, there are a few hoops you have to jump through.

"Working with Aoife was incredible ! Her attention to detail and ability to turn such a simple idea into something so detailed is amazing and I couldn’t be happier with the website. From start to finish she was so organised, helpful and driven. Anything I asked was done and no questions were left unanswered. I can’t wait to work with Aoife again in the future. Incredibly trust worthy and excellent at what she does! Thank you Aoife!"
