Are you thinking about improving your eCommerce store but fear that cost is a major barrier to adopting new digital solutions on your website in 2023?

With the rapid growth of the digital industry, the EU and UK government have set up a grant scheme that allows the businesses that meet the criteria to receive financial support towards various digital services.

The grant is aimed at SME businesses to help adopt new digital technologies and improve productivity. Businesses that qualify can receive a discount of 50%, up to a maximum of £5,000, towards the cost of buying one approved software in the Help to Grow: Digital scheme.

The grant can be used towards a range of digital and eCommerce software, including but not limited to website development, website design, website security and IT infrastructure. The full information about the program can be found here.

This is especially useful for eCommerce businesses that are thinking about improving their existing platform or migrating to a platform that provides more flexibility like BigCommerce – one of the approved eCommerce technology suppliers in the Help to Grow: Digital scheme.

Hurry though, the scheme will close to new business applications for discounts on 2 February, so this is your last chance to secure the government’s support to fuel your growth plans and push your business ideas forward into 2023.

If you need help accessing the scheme or have questions about the application process, get in touch today at [email protected] and we will be happy to assist.
