Online Retail Scheme

What is the Online Retail Scheme?

The Department of Enterprise Trade and Employment (DETE) has launched a further call for Online Retail Scheme aiming to encourage the retail sector in Ireland to develop a more competitive online offer that will enable an increase in their customer base and build a more resilient business in the domestic and global marketplace both online and offline.

This is a Competitive Fund which will be administered by Enterprise Ireland on behalf of DETE with a total fund size of €3.4m.

Applications for funding are invited through a public call for submission of projects.

The grant is calculated at a maximum of 50% of eligible expenditure of up to €50,000. The maximum grant available is up to €25,000. The minimum project expenditure is €20,000. Applications with expenditure below €20,000 will be considered ineligible.
