In May of this year, the eRecovery program was launched in Ukraine, under which people can receive funds to repair their homes damaged by the full-scale war. Epicentr is a company that was one of the first to participate in the program and offered more than 295 thousand items of goods for construction and repair to users of the program. In total, in 4 months, Ukrainians the Epicenter network purchased goods for the repair of damaged homes worth more than UAH 60 million under the eRecovery program, and this figure is growing every day.
"Epicentr has been working in the Ukrainian market for 20 years so that customers can choose modern, high-quality products for home and comfort. Our role is especially important now, because we have offered the widest assortment, established logistics chains, improved service and quality of services. For the convenience of choosing a product that is subject to calculation by the eRecovery card, the appropriate marking has been added. Checkout areas are branded, and the site has a special payment method for eRecovery. Also, program participants can receive professional advice and additional information about the program at Epicenter," said Epicenter K Deputy Chairman for Communications, Advertising and Marketing.
According to the company's analysts, the eRecovery program at Epicenter was most used by residents of Kyiv and the region, Kharkiv, Dnipro, and Zaporizhzhia. Most often, consumers bought doors, roofing (slate, corrugated board, tiles), drywall, wooden structures, materials for interior decoration (windows, partitions) and floor coverings (tiles, laminate, linoleum).
In addition to goods and services, Epicenter and partner banks - Sense and Abank - offer participants in the eRecovery program cashbacks when purchasing goods. In particular, Abank provides 10% cashback at Epicenter for the first UAH 5,000 and 2% for all subsequent expenses on the eRecovery card. In turn, Sense Bank returns customers 1% of the amount of all purchases under the program.
It should be noted that the eRecovery program was launched in May this year for those families whose homes were damaged due to Russian aggression. In the Diia application, it is now possible not only to report damaged housing, but also to apply for financial assistance for repairs.
