This will help you better understand the widget settings options when using the Store Donation on Purchase campaign.
With using the Change Commerce app, you have the ability to customize your donation experience, including how and where you choose to set up the donation widget on site. These customization options allow you to create a donation experience that best fits your brand’s needs.
Product Page Widget Theme
With using the Change Commerce app, you have the ability to select the style of widget that you would like to use on your website to best fit your brand’s theme and style. Your options include Compact, Contained, and Full. To see a preview of each widget style, you can click through the different options to see what each style of widget looks like.
Product Page Widget Location
By default, the Store Donation on Purchase widget will appear on your product pages above or below your Add to Cart button, whichever you choose. If you activate the app and notice that the donation widget is not appearing on your product pages, you can utilize the Custom CSS Selector to adjust the placement of the widget to ensure that it appears as usual. You can read more about using the Custom CSS Selector here.
With using the Change Commerce app, you as the merchant can choose how you would like to confirm a creation of donation with your customers after they’ve placed an order. You can choose to set up either a donation confirmation email, window, or both. The reason that your customers must receive a confirmation of a donation is to remain compliant with cause marketing regulation by ensuring that as the merchant, you are being transparent with your customers on how much was donated and which cause(s) that donation is going to support. You can read more about donation confirmation here.
The settings within this section are activated by default to provide your customers with the most complete giving experience possible. Here, you can determine whether you would like to enable your customers to search and select a cause of their choice, or if you would only like them to be able to support your set featured causes.
You can also choose whether or not you would like to have the donation widget appear in your side cart/ajax cart.
Cart and Checkout Widget
While the Store Donation on Purchase donation widget will automatically appear on your product pages, we also recommend that you place the donation widget on your cart page as well to increase your customers’ exposure to the donation widget, which can increase the chance that they will select a cause before placing their order.
In this section, you have access to the script for each style of the donation widget, which you will need to place in your cart template file. You can read more about placing the donation widget on your cart page here.
Please note that while our donation widgets can be placed on the Checkout page as well, only merchants who are on the Shopify Plus platform can access their Checkout template file to place the widget there.
To ensure that donations from your store are captured properly, we recommend that you place the script from this section into your store’s Checkout Settings. You can also access this script from the top banner within your Global Settings under Manager. You can read more about the Additional Script here.
