About Balance by Carbon Checkout


Carbon Checkout first launched its Shopify app in 2015; it has since grown into the world's largest carbon offset retail distribution network, now operating in 37 countries. Having partnered with thousands of eCommerce merchants, we have given millions of customers just like yours, the convenient opportunity to BALANCE the carbon footprint of their order, in one-click at checkout.

And we’re not just an app, we are an environmental consulting group with technical expertise and a proven track record of environmental achievement since 2007. Carbon Checkout is your trusted carbon offset partner.


Consumer research has long showed that integrating cause in commerce not only strengthens brands, but also reduces shopping cart abandonment and increases overall sales and customer loyalty. Carbon Checkout is your opportunity to integrate a fully managed cause marketing initiative into your business strategy today. Here's how it works:

  1. Install in one-click. Carbon Checkout integrates seamlessly into your site to offer your customers the unique opportunity to balance the carbon footprint of their purchase at checkout. Full integration into your store in one-click.

  2. Balance in one-click. Your customers now have the option to balance the carbon footprint of their order. Default contributions are a round-up value, with 245 lbs of CO2 emissions offset per $1 contributed. Contributions are added to cart total and automatically collected at checkout. There is no page reload, no added user registration or checkout requirements, just one-click to check the box.

  3. Track in one-click. Participating customers receive an automated confirmation e-mail with a unique hyperlinked verification code, where they can access their personal Carbon Portfolio and track their contributions and funded carbon offset projects in real-time.

  4. Carbon Checkout pools all contributions into a fund to make significant investments in renewable energy projects that reduce global carbon emissions. You and your customers become part of a powerful movement to reduce the effects of climate change through collective action, it’s as simple as one-click.


Contributions are collected by merchants at checkout, and transferred to Carbon Checkout via your monthly Shopify bill, paid automatically through Shopify.

A great feature to add the option for customers. Custom service has been very responsive in making this seamless with Shopify and easy to use.

Awesome app, great idea, easy to use and customer service/tech support if you need it is outstanding. Keep doing what you're doing guys and the fact it's free makes it even better!

This is such a good idea - not much take up yet - but it will come. Very easy to install then just leave it alone and let it work
