Enterprise Ireland has opened a call for applications for the Online Retail Scheme starting from Tuesday 4th April 2023 with a closing date for applications of Wednesday 3rd May 2023.

The Online Retail Scheme provides a fund to encourage the retail sector in Ireland to develop a more competitive online offering 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.

It is administered by Enterprise Ireland and there is €3.4 million available in this round of funding.

Successful applicants will be awarded funding to support a maximum of 50% of the project eligible costs of €50,000 with a maximum grant of €25,000.

Note that companies who have been approved twice (or more) in previous Enterprise Ireland Online Retail schemes are not eligible to apply for the Scheme again.

Some of the Retailers Magico assisted in securing funds

Air Impact Ltd.

“In 2022, Magico supported Air Impact in an Online Retail Scheme Grant application to engage the Magico Customer Success programme. Before the Customer Success Programme our website was secondary in the business or even less. Now that we have the structure in place we can see from the dashboard where the revenues is coming from and now the website is a much bigger priority.”

“Following a successful application for the government’s EI Online Retail Scheme, we were able to move to a new platform with Magico / AB Commerce that integrates with our EPOS for live stock levels. Our new Stakelums website has brought additional functionality and has addressed issues with load speed, responsive design and UX that were present on our old website.”
