The BEDC will be launching ByBermuda — an online marketplace which offers local goods — on November 29th, Premier David Burt announced.

In providing an update on the 31 priority initiatives in the Economic Recovery Plan, Premier David Burt said, “One of the 31 priority projects reads as follows: ‘Use BEDC resources to create an online SME marketplace that will allow entrepreneurs easy access to sell their goods and services online without having to deal with costly individual setups, large monthly fees and merchant account complexities.’

“This initiative is substantially complete, and on November 29th for eMonday the online marketplace at will launch. The platform, aptly named byBermuda, is a local online marketplace where people come together to sell and buy unique Bermudian products and experiences,” the Premier added.

The Government previously announced that the contract to build and manage the website, which includes a number of features and online payments, had been awarded to a Bermudian firm at a total cost of $64,000.00 over two fiscal years.

At that time, the Government said, “With a Virtual Market the opportunity exists to promote economic development in Bermuda by providing small businesses with access to an online platform that will allow them to sell their goods and services. In addition, to provide an alternative solution to businesses needing to establish their own payment processing solution.”

    Should we tell the Premier that “By” in this context means to depart or leave but “Buy” means to purchase?

    Clearly our Premier did not attend Whitney Institute!

      A little quick to jump on the snark wagon eh? You are wrong.

      1st of all, “by” does NOT mean “to depart or leave”. That word would be “bye.”‘
      2nd, “By” as in ‘ByBermuda” means “made by Bermudians.”

      So ease up on the snark pal. You look like a bitter old fool.
