50% E-Commerce Grant Scheme Launched

Monday, June 12th, 2017

If you are thinking of revamping your eCommerce website, adding eCommerce functionality to your existing website, or perhaps, launching your brand new business idea and selling online – now is the time!

This new scheme, launched earlier in 2017 by the Measures and Support Division within the Ministry for European Affairs and Implementation of the Electoral Manifesto is offering this scheme to micro and small to medium Maltese businesses. The application is pretty straightforward and can fund 50% of the eCommerce website, up to a maximum of €5000. This is a welcome initiative in the industry as it allows local firms to embark on eCommerce initiatives without going into exorbitant fees. The scheme is open until 2020, but is granted on a first come first served basis.

What costs does the scheme cover?

The scheme covers aspects ranging from website design, website development, hosting of said website, integration of analytics into the site as well as mobile applications, amongst others.

Would my website be eligible for such grant?

To be eligible the end product shall be an e-commerce website/mobile application that will include a Content Management System that must comply with the current industry standard e-commerce security practices, will incorporate an online product/service catalogue, a shopping cart, a payment or booking system and an integrated e-commerce payment gateway enabling online payments and support at least basic analytics. ​

Can anyone offer this scheme?

No. Only registered service providers with the Measures and Support Division are able to offer this scheme.

Have any questions? Interested in the scheme? Have a business idea you would like to discuss?

Social Media Management

Facebook have announced that they will be reducing the number of posts from Business pages from people’s news feeds. This will be done to increase the quantity of posts by friends while scrolling through the social medium. The reasoning behind this, according to Mark Zuckerberg, is that using social media to interact with people we care about can be beneficial, while “passively reading articles or watching videos… may not be as good.”
