Plymouth based E Commerce company ICO3 have doubled their recruitment target of new retail partners from six to 12 for the next three months.

Following substantial growth this summer of their existing partners, they plan to launch the new partners by Christmas 2013, bringing their total number of partners up to 50. The expansion also brings seven new jobs to Plymouth, partly funded by a recent PWGF grant award.

ICO3, who currently have over 40 E Commerce partners based within the South West and throughout the UK, are particularly keen to support those retailers who are looking to expand their high street retail shop with sustainable sales on their own website, Ebay store and Amazon store.

The company will spend up to £10000 on new partnerships in order to create very profitable and successful online businesses from whom they then get a return on investment through commission sales.

ICO3 was originally a University of Plymouth ‘Spin Out’, and established as an internet development and design company in 2000. In 2008 the company became an all-encompassing E Commerce service.

CEO David Gadd says “We are riding on the very strong waves of E Commerce growth with not only the UK market at our fingertips but through our own integration tools we can also help our partners reach Europe, the USA and even Australia. The South West has some great entrepreneurs and some great products and with our help we can get these leading lights online quickly, effectively and profitably.”

ICO3 would like to hear from potential new business partners who are seeking to grow their existing online business as well as those who would like to take their first steps into the world of E C ommerce.

ICO3 are also interested in broadening their client market and would also welcome interest from interior design companies, women’s wear and health care companies.
