ShoppingGives handles all of the backend complexities of cause marketing regulation, allowing brands to focus on making an impact and engaging customers.
"The Shopify Plus Certified App program is designed to meet the advanced requirements of the world’s fastest growing brands," said Mark Bergen, VP Revenue at Shopify. "We’re happy to welcome ShoppingGives to the program, bringing their insight and experience in powering donations and giving campaigns to the Plus merchant community."
