Digital Sales Access Program

The Office of Economic Development (OED), Comcast and Kay Tita launched the new Digital Sales Access Program (DSAP) to support Seattle’s small businesses most impacted by COVID-19 and the digital divide. Addressing the digital divide by removing digital access barriers that exacerbated the negative economic impact of the pandemic on small businesses, particularly BIPOC small and medium-size businesses, is a key strategy of OED.

DSAP will support 50 small businesses by equipping them with a point-of-sales (POS) system and connecting participating businesses with tools and training needed to pivot their operations to new technology. Each eligible business owner will receive POS equipment, a Square stand, an iPad Air and one-on-one POS training.

This new system will allow small business owners to grow their business by switching from cash-only to accepting debit, credit and other digital forms of payment. The program will increase businesses e‑commerce capacity and improve businesses digital literacy, financial awareness and overall business health.

To be eligible for DSAP, small businesses must have a maximum of five employees; be interested in learning how to leverage digital resources to grow their business; and be cash-only or in need of a POS upgrade.

Businesses that meet the eligibility requirements can apply by Thursday, July 15.
