Easy donation app provides a donation option to the customers, who want to donate some amount to charity. The store merchants have to specify the charity organization so that the customers can get to know to which organization they are donating.
Donation section can be added from backend/dashboard settings. The store owner can configure whether to display them on cart page or the product page. The store owner can also add donation title, description, images, and select an amount option for each of the donation boxes. Once the app is configured from backend and is enabled, it will be displayed on the store on cart page or product page as per the configuration.
Empower your customers to round up their checkout total and donate a few cents to a charity you choose!
Round Up for Charity is the landmark social good initiative used by Shopify merchants worldwide. This program adds a small checkbox above the “checkout” button on your store’s shopping cart page to allow your customers to round up their subtotal and direct that amount to charity.
Customers love the opportunity to be able to support non-profits in an easy and unintrusive way.
Once you install the program everything automatically runs in the background. Donations are collected each week or month depending on your transaction volume. You can track how many donations are collected any time directly from the Round Up app in your Shopify administrator panel.
Seamlessly integrate this program and let it run in the background. You never have to worry about installation or maintenance.
Once you install the app customers will be given the option to donate an additional few cents to the charity that the Shopify store owner selects. These donations will automatically be debited from your account. We will also provide an annual summary of all donations that you can provide to your accountant which will satisfy all IRS requirements.
Each month, the Round Up will aggregate all the donations received deduct a modest amount to maintain and update the app and forward your donation to the partner charity you have selected.
Share The Love allows store owners to harness the purchasing power of their customers to help make the world a better place.
This app allows shops owners create a list of causes they want to support and when a customer checks out they can choose what cause from the list they want a portion of their payment to go toward.
This app allows you to collect either a flat amount per order or a percentage of the cart total and records what cause is selected.
Example: You can donate 20% of each purchase to a charity, or you can give $5 for every purchase made
The donation is optional, and doesn’t interfere with the checkout process if a cause is not selected.
This app establishes “elastic pricing” on your store – it lets your customers pay what they want for your products, opening the door for donations, like the hundreds of non-profits and religious organizations that use PWYW.
All you have to do is simply choose a minimum price and add the “PWYW” tag to your product and this app does the rest – it will add a special field to your product page, allowing users to enter their desired price.
Want to make environmental sustainability a part of your business? This app is FREE and provides a pop-up at checkout asking your customers if they would like to plant a tree for $1.00.
