Today’s digital storefronts are not just selling products—they’re promoting values. Providing the option to give back is a great way to enhance your brand’s image, deepen emotional connections with shoppers, and increase customer loyalty.

It’s now easier than ever for BigCommerce businesses to support social causes and help consumers contribute to meaningful change. See how a recent enhancement to the Ebizio Checkout app helps merchants seamlessly integrate a donations option in their BigCommerce store.

Introducing the Donations Module by Ebizio Checkout for BigCommerce

The Ebizio Checkout app by IntuitSolutions utilizes the BigCommerce Open Source Checkout to provide merchants with a suite of powerful checkout solutions.

The new Donations Module, our latest app enhancement, enables merchants to integrate donation options directly into the checkout process and maintain complete control over rule configuration in the back office.

Why Integrate Donations into Your BigCommerce Store?

Recent studies show that consumers are four to six times more likely to purchase from purpose-driven companies. A separate study also suggested that customers will favor a philanthropic-oriented business over a competitor that doesn’t contribute to charitable causes.

Here are a few compelling reasons for supporting donations in your ecommerce store:

  • Align with Consumer Values: Enabling shoppers to make purchases that reflect their ethics transforms your store into a platform for social commitment.
  • Differentiate Your Business from Competitors: Standing out in a crowded market means showing your brand’s commitment to more than just profits.
  • Enhance Customer Loyalty: Studies indicate consumers are much more likely to stick with brands that support charitable causes, boosting repeat business and market share.
