Big news for Shopify ecommerce stores: our new Cloverly app is now in the Shopify App Store! The app makes it super easy to give your customers the option to green their shipping through Cloverly—at no cost to you.
Today's consumers increasingly care about sustainability. They want the businesses they patronize to care, too. The Cloverly app is perfect not only for new stores wanting to make a name for themselves but also for mature stores seeking to build on an already-established sustainability program.
You can find the free app at https://apps.shopify.com/cloverly-app. Just click the "Add app" button. You can then either stick with the default design or customize it to appear on your store exactly the way you want it. For step-by-step instructions, see our How to configure Cloverly for Shopify knowledge base article and video.
We give you complete control over the design of the Cloverly widget. You can put it wherever you want on the page and fit it seamlessly into your branding.
Cloverly's algorithms instantly calculate the carbon footprint of an ecommerce shipment and offer customers the option of offsetting that calculated emissions impact.
Normally, our app does that through a simple checkbox that appears on the cart page. Your customers can elect to pay a little extra—almost always less than $1—by clicking the checkbox, or not. They then proceed as usual with their purchase.
We also offer two other modes. Rather than have us calculate the emissions for each shipment, stores can choose to offer a higher flat rate for all shipments. That will make an even greener impact by sending extra money to offset projects—again, if the customer opts to make the voluntary payment.
Stores can also green every shipment and pay for it themselves. Some retailers opt to do that for special promotions. For example, some stores are greening all shipments during April to celebrate Earth Month.
You control which mode you want. Toggling between them is easy.
To add a sustainability option to your online store, simply download the Cloverly app from the Shopify App Store and see what it can do. Contact us at our Support Page if you have any questions. We look forward to partnering with you for the good of the planet.
