Checkout Tool for Micro-donations

How Beanstalk Giving Supports E-Tailers

We’ve created a cause marketing tool which easily integrates into your checkout process with no impact on IT and Operations and at no cost - so you can stay focused on your core business. This web technology (API) harnesses the power of micro-donations by inviting your customers to round up their change or add an extra dollar to their balance for donation to a charity of their choice. We then aggregate these donations and thousands more from other e-tailer partners in our network, and distribute them to the corresponding non-profits. 

How will offering my customers the option to micro-donate benefit my business?

Attract and Retain the Best Customers

Establish preference for your brand: A recent study shows that 88% of consumers would switch from one brand to another (all else being more or less equal) if that brand was associated with a good cause.

Provide a more positive shopping experience: "Embedded Generosity" or making giving easy and painless, is identified as one of the top ten crucial consumer marketing trends for 2010. Providing your customers with an option to do good can improve their experience and win their loyalty.

Create a common ground: Our tool allows your customers to select the charity that most resonates with them. 84% of consumers state that selecting their own cause is an important factor in supporting a company's cause marketing efforts. By supporting these charities with your customers, you share a common interest with them.

Attract and Retain the Best Team

Create a favorable workplace: 79% of people prefer to work for companies that are socially responsible. This is especially true of today’s young talent. This generation not only supports these causes themselves, they see it as mandatory for their employers to be socially responsible as well.

Keep your staff engaged: Implementing an effective Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) program can give your employees the feeling of being part of a larger mission. Your team will be proud and motivated knowing they are helping make an impact in their communities.

Better Business

People talk and you should too: Implementing a CSR program is something to be proud of. Your customers, partners and suppliers want to know about the good you’re doing in your communities and theirs. Our API gives you the opportunity to easily and effectively support the charities you and your customers care about most.

Enjoyment: Science has proven doing good makes us feel great. Give yourself and your employees the chance to be more creative, involved and exhilarated by making a macro difference through micro donations.

Ready Made and Easy to Implement

Responsibly Sustainable: As all organizations do, Beanstalk Giving has operational costs including developing and maintaining the API, administrative costs associated with distributing funds, etc. To cover these costs, Beanstalk Giving collects 7% of all donations up to and not exceeding our cost of operations. With this model, the more funds raised the lower the contribution per donation. In addition, we highly encourage our e-tailer partners to cover these administrative expenses on behalf of their customers. The initial investment to start Beanstalk Giving was covered through a start-up fund at no expense to our e-tailer partners, donors or charity partners.

Completely secure: The Beanstalk Giving API requires very minimal information to record and track donations. Any information gathered is stored in our secure database and never shared. All donations are collected by the e-tailer and released to Beanstalk Giving on a pre-determined cycle as an aggregated sum for distribution to corresponding charitable organizations. 

Native look and feel: Integration into your shopping cart will be seamless. This Magento Extension has flexible parameters allowing it to be completely customized to the layout of your site.

When trying to install on 1.5 getting this error "community/BG_Microdonations: Version for 'BG_Microdonations' was not detected" October 6, 2011
In the era of social networking - this projects made power in the society. But I can not believe that project team behind the micro donation structure philosophy did not made it OPEN and WIDE but they still deserve the right to DECIDE and CHOOSE charities and partners in donors... Very sad for me as small company and for all people in my community February 3, 2011
Hi, I am getting this error while installation magento-community/BG_Microdonations requires package "magento-core/" magento-community/BG_Microdonations requires package "magento-core/" Install Errors No valid packages found PEAR ERROR: install failed Thanks Thunder January 17, 2011
After installing i checked the online customers and saw that another ip was online with my account. not as an administrator but i made an account to check my store as a potential client. Maybe it's a coincidince i don't know. But after uninstalling it. my site was broken so i did delete all in var/cache and did use the cleanup tool (set all permission to default) for magento. and my site was again back in bussines. It's a very nice extension for the store owners to do cherity. I am very unhappy that it didn't work for me. I Hope it works for you guys. November 8, 2010
after installing this, someone had logged in with my account and password. coincidence? November 6, 2010
