eCAI Story

The eCAI is a fully voluntary, non - profit organisation run by a team of dedicated eCommerce professionals dedicated to the advancement of the industry in Ireland.

The eCAI was set up to fill the gap for eCommerce representation for all types of eCommerce companies and traders in Ireland. We set out to find out if there was a need and we were overwhelmed at the response.

To date the organisation is 100% voluntary. We have got to where we are with the good will of our dedicated volunteers and companies who have donated services along the way.

In 2019 the decision was made to fully monetise the Association to pay for full time staff and premises. The development of this unique Business Network Platform was central to the development strategy for the Association.

The eCAI will continue to operate as a non-profit independent body
chartered to advance eCommerce and grow our community.
