Purchase.ie now selling into more than 30 countries

9 Jun 2011

E-commerce website Purchase.ie, which specialises in eco products, has re-launched its website with news it is now selling into more than 30 countries worldwide.

Currently featuring around 70 products that enable customers to save energy, reduce waste and conserve water, Purchase.ie also offers eco-gift ideas and safety-related products.

The new site includes a dedicated section on Irish products and Colm Griffin of Purchase.ie is confident his business can help Irish innovators in the green sector to achieve strong export sales.

“The business has been relatively successful in the Irish online market but there is a much bigger world out there,” said Griffin. “One of its goals is to help Irish innovators achieve high export sales and by putting a great deal of research, time and resources into its development. We believe the revamped website – now set up to sell into over 30 countries – will go some way towards achieving this objective.”

Five main shopping sections

Aside from the Irish products section, the new website has four main shopping sections: energy saving products, water saving, waste management and eco-gift ideas.

“We already represent a number of Irish businesses that have come to us with some very innovative and exciting products,” Griffin added. “These include ‘The Rad Booster’ which is a heat reflective device installed behind radiators; a solar-powered address numbering system to significantly improve the identification of households and business premises at night time; and ‘The Bin-Trasher’, which featured on RTE’s Dragons’ Den last year.”

Other Irish products available through Purchase.ie include the ‘Shatter-Safe Hurley’, invented by Clare man Flan Marsh; natural handmade soap gift sets made in Co Donegal, and a range of glow safety products designed by transition-year students from Co Wicklow.

Purchase.ie plans to represent Irish businesses at a series of international trade shows by 2012. “Attending these shows can be an expensive business so our aim for now is to attend a number of events on behalf of our clients as it would lower the costs involved for all concerned,” explained Griffin.
