a 501c3 nonprofit. All of the apps I have seen seem specifically for 501c3 with tax receipts, etc. I want, for instance, a customer to  buy a tee shirt and then be able to add $5 to support the org. Any ideas? Thanks

Hi @GetLoud,

 

If I'm understanding your question correctly, you are looking to collect donations for your own business purposes? If that's the case then, you're right, we don't have an option to do this. Accepting donations through Shopify Payments is only allowed for registered charities in Canada and the US and donation apps in the app store only work with registered charities internationally, not for-profit businesses. 

 

There may be other payment gateways you can use to facilitate this type of donation, but you'd have to reach out to them directly.

The best Shopify App that I know of for this is Shopping Gives.

 

Here's the full website:

And here's their Shopify App (I think they changed their name from "Change Commerce" to Shopping Gives):
