What We Do

COVID-19 Online Retail Scheme

The Department introduced the COVID-19 Online Retail Scheme in response to the COVID-19 crisis and the urgent need for retail companies to achieve a step change in online capability.

Call 2 of the COVID-19 Online Retail Scheme

This competitive call opened Monday, 31 August 2020 and closed at 3pm on Monday, 28 September 2020. 145 applicants were successful under Call 2.

On 9 November, Minister of State for Business, Employment and Retail, Damien English TD, announced €5.3m in grants to the Retail Sector through Call 2 of the COVID-19 Online Retail Scheme administered by Enterprise Ireland.

145 retailers will receive funding via the scheme which aims to drive Irish retailers’ online sales at home and abroad. The Scheme is targeted at retailers who already have an online presence to strengthen their online offering and enable them to reach a wider customer base.

The scheme, which was announced in the Government’s July Jobs Stimulus package, received 204 applications. 70% of the successful applicants are located outside Dublin with 102 retailers from these regions approved for funding.

Under this COVID-19 competitive call, the successful applicants will receive funding ranging from €16,000 to €40,000 to strengthen their online offering. The average grant value is €36,700 and covers up to 80% of project costs.

The 145 retailers awarded funding under Call 2, operate across a broad spectrum of sectors including healthcare, jewellery, fashion, sports, homeware and furniture, electrical goods and equipment.

The COVID-19 Online Retail Scheme is complementary to the €2,500 Trading Online Vouchers, provided through the Local Enterprise Offices for companies with up to 10 employees.

Enterprise Ireland will be opening a new call under the COVID-19 Online Retail Scheme in early 2021.
