How to sell unique item as free gift if someone can prove they donated to a charity

I desperately need help for my business plan with my Shopify store. I want to raise funds for nonprofits by incentivizing people to donate with free unique digital gifts of collaborative poetry art when they donate. I was planning to use a Shopify app, Shopping gives, to direct 100% of sale of product to the charity so purchases are tax deductible for the customer but the app just raised their fees too much on top of the .05% fee and credit card fees. Instead I want the customer to choose the unique gift that they want and then prove that they donated somehow. Before it would just be 1st person to checkout that would get the item but now I’m not sure how to sell the unique item for free and how to verify that a person has made a donation to a charity.

Hi @Foolfully !

 

For this feature, you might want to install a Pop up banner applictaion from your Shopify app store for this offer or campaign where you can customize your banner message and instructions on how to get the discount. You can explore these app and see what works best for you: Pop Convert ‑ Pop Ups, BannersAttrac: Bars, Banners, Pop ups, and EcomSend Pop Ups, Email Popups. Here is the full list of Marketing Apps that you can check.

Actually, I still need to use the Shopping Gives app so I don’t need to personally verify donations. I’m just going to pass the additional fees to the buyer so people can easily make donations with just a few clicks. Since 100% of price of item needs to be donated for the donation to be tax deductible, there will be an additional product to purchase to cover the cost of the additional fees. I’m not sure how to have a required product that must be in the cart for each other item that donates the money. Is there way you can add a required item to be in the cart for each of the other normal items so purchase cannot be completed unless requirements are met? Or perhaps have the donation purchases only appear as an add-on product once a different item is added to cover the donation costs. I want to feature the donations so don’t want the donation products to only appear after an item is added so not sure how to do that either. Maybe have 2 items bundled together so you must remain bundled together.

 

Anyone please give me their best idea to have 1 featured product to always require another product?

Hi @Foolfully !

 

I understand that you want to have donations in every purchase. How about trying donation apps where you can customize how you want it to appear in your store and encourage your customer more? I highly suggest that you try to check donation apps such as Donate By SaleEasy DonationEasy Donation, and Virtue ‑ Charity Donations.

I hope this helps!
