Product-Level Cause Donations, or PLCD, is the ability to set specific causes on individual products. With PLCD, your store can create custom campaigns by supporting specific charitable initiatives on an individual product level.
Using PLCD is a great way to create custom giving campaigns, and even in the case of collaborations that you may have with other brands or influencers. If for example you have a pair of shoes that are made of recycled materials and you want the purchase of those shoes to donate to an ocean clean-up cause, using PLCD is an easy way to create that campaign.
