Funding for the first Viennese companies wishing to register for the online shopping platform.
Online trade represents untapped potential for the Viennese economy. According to a recent study, online trade accounts for a flow of around 600 million Euros. This estimate is the basis for the first dedicated shopping platform for Viennese business, which has been set up on the initiative of the Vienna Business Agency and the Vienna Chamber of Commerce.
The online platform will be organised by a 100% subsidiary of Österreichischen [Austrian] Post AG, which, in an international announcement, stated that the platform is expected to launch early in 2018 under the name wien.shöpping.at.
As an added incentive particularly for smaller businesses to participate in the Vienna Shopping Platform, the 1st of November marks the beginning of the "Funding for the Vienna Shopping Platform". The first 150 companies who register for the new platform will receive €1,000 in funding. The support for the first shopping platform for Viennese trade also includes free advice and two city managers will be available to assist with any queries.
