Retailers Share €660,000 Online Grants

Pilot Online Retail Scheme

26 Sep 2019 | 10.38 am

Twenty-nine retailers are to receive grants from €10,000 to €25,000 to strengthen their online presence and broaden their market base, in the second round of Enterprise Ireland’s Online Retail Scheme.

The retailers will share €660,000 out of the total funding pot of €1.25m, aimed at improving their online presence and enhancing their e-commerce capabilities.

EI head of consumer Stephen Hughes said: “While many smaller retailers are selling quality, in-demand products and services that will appeal to an international customer base, they need to invest in their digital presence to keep up with strong global competition. 

“This scheme will provide Irish retailers with the additional resources to respond and adapt their business model to the upcoming challenges including potentially weaker consumer confidence and increasing business costs after Brexit.”
