Let us dive into the discussion

57% of the nonprofit organizations that opted for digital fundraising methods experienced an increase in their funds. Shopify makes the process easy by featuring two plans for nonprofit organizations

  • NPO Lite
  • NPO Full

NPO Lite

Shopify offers two pricing packages under the NPO Lite plan

  • NPO Lite without an online shop is for $9/month or $96/annum
  • NPO Lite with an online shop is for $29/month or $312/annum

Both these packages come with free channels. If you opt for the annual program of NPO Lite, you can avail 10% discount. However, biennial or triennial packages don't offer discounts.

All the features of NPO Lite are similar to the Basic Shopify plan. Although, some additional perks of this package are

  • The transaction fee is reduced to 1% as compared to the 2% of the Basic plan. However, you need a 3rd payment provider to take advantage of this feature.
  • Payment credit card rates are also minimized.
  • Allows you to receive donations through your Shopify store as a registered nonprofit in the US/Canada.
  • Offers unlimited staff accounts
  • Immediate carrier shipping
  • Three locations (at the maximum)

NPO Full

NPO Full plan is also available in two pricing packages, one without and one with an online shop.

  • NPO Full without an online shop – $79/month or $852/annum
  • NPO Full with an online shop and retail POS functionality – $99/month and $1068/annum

Nonprofits can also get a 10% discount if they opt for an annual package.

Though NPO Full might seem like an expensive plan, its attributes are exceptional. Though it resembles a lot to Shopify plan, some noticeable characteristics of NPO Full are as follows

  • If you are using a 3rd party payment provider, the transaction fee will be 0%, which is a
    win-win situation.
  • Allows nonprofits to create unlimited staff accounts
  • The credit card rates for Shopify payments are also less compared to the Shopify Plan
  • Permits fundraising directly through your e-store
  • Immediate carrier shipping
  • Four locations (at the maximum)

Fundraising is a demanding activity for nonprofits. The advent of modern digital fundraising techniques (email marketing and using eCommerce platforms like Shopify and Wix etc.) have made the process even more challenging. Each method comes with several requirements.

Out of these programs, Shopify is fairly advantageous because of its nonprofit-friendly policies and excellent NPO plans. Nonprofits can choose among four different packages and see which one suits their requirement.

If your organization still finds this fundraising a bit complicated, then you can turn to Nevelis for a helping hand. Our experts are always ready to assist you in any way possible.
