Visa and Raiffeisen Bank have announced that they will organize a contest for support and development in online marketing and sales for small and medium enterprises in Serbia. Legal entities with a seat in Serbia which need an online store will be able to apply by June 21 and be provided with the possibility of having an online store set up for free, along with free one-year maintenance.
Up to 50 small and medium companies interested in online sales, which meet the requirements of the contest, will also be provided with the services of a professional photographer and the processing of photographs of the products, instructions and training for the use of the platform itself, as well as other services.
The regional manager of Visa for Southeast Europe, Vladimir Djordjevic, said that companies offering e-trade had an opportunity to reduce the costs and attract new categories of consumers, thanks to a simple access to a wide range of goods and services.
The deputy chairman of the Executive Board of Raiffeisen Bank in Serbia, Petar Jovanovic, said that online sale had for a long time been the best way to market products to various sectors of the economy and that its share in total sales would additionally grow in the new circumstances during and after the coronavirus pandemic crisis.
