THE vast majority of small businesses with websites in Ireland aren't equipped to trade online, a survey has found, even though the market has been estimated to be worth €21bn by 2017.

While more than six-in-10 SMEs have a website, 91pc admit that they cannot process sales via the internet, according to research commissioned by IEDR, the company which manages Ireland's .ie domain registry.

More than 500 Irish SMEs were surveyed across the country and found that more than half aren't using social media.
