The Pontevedra Provincial Council, through the “creation and implementation of provincial business advisory centres (CPAE 2.0)” and “development and promotion of electronic commerce in the province of Pontevedra” under the “despotic” and “depoDEZA” projects, both co-financed by FEDER, has developed the “Ponteacomprar” e-commerce platform to boost the province’s economy, where the self-employed and micro-SMEs (prioritising the micro-SMEs with five employees or fewer and an annual turnover or total annual balance sheet not exceeding 2 million euros), preferably from the food and beverage, catering, tourism, entertainment, hotel and cultural industries in the province of Pontevedra and businesses in the food, hotel and catering industries in the region of Deza (with a limit on number of employees and turnover), can sell their products and services online.
The main objective is to promote businesses in the province of Pontevedra, facilitating access to a new sales channel through which the self-employed and small businesses can market their products and services online. These products and services are high quality, local and made using traditional methods in the province.
Another objective of the “Ponteacomprar” e-commerce platform is to introduce local Pontevedra products and services by showcasing their characteristic quality and expertise and promoting their consumption both in and outside the province while raising awareness about our history and customs through entertainment and tourism services. “Ponteacomprar” strives to strengthen business and production and boost economic growth in the province of Pontevedra.
