Laat.ee - Made in Estonia goods


The aim of Laat.ee is to guarantee the sustainability of Estonian products and production methods.

The unique web environment lets Estonian small-scale producers meet their customers without charging for it.

Laat.ee is the first social networking / trading portal that combines a free web trading environment with an interactive interface. In the portal, every company has a free webpage that gives a good overview of the producer and their goods. The producer can be contacted through web communication channels as well as telephone. All communication and transactions between the merchant and the guest are conducted privately and upon mutual agreement of the parties.

 

 
The Laat.ee web system has defined the term FON, Fair Online Network.
The system lets the user create free web pages that are aggregated into a common interface with the aim of creating a direct marketing channel that offers interactive communication channels and other tools.
The general aim behind this is to protect small businesses and help them overcome the limitations imposed on them by their size.
 
Come and support the Estonian cause!
