Minimize your carbon footprint
Transportation used to ship orders burns fossil fuels and generates carbon emissions. Those emissions trap heat, leading to climate change.
Calculate shipping emissions
Offset calculates the cost to neutralize your shipping emissions by protecting forests through certified projects and partners.
Monitor your impact
Your Offset dashboard displays your monthly emissions, including number of shipped orders, distance traveled, and total shipping distance.
Why use Offset
Offset allows you to neutralize your shipping emissions that contribute to climate change. You can proudly tell your customers that they are supporting an environmentally-friendly business that invests in sustainability initiatives to counteract the environmental impact of shipping.
We're excited to work with Pachama and contribute to certified projects, complying with the best-in-class carbon offset protocols and standards.
Offset your shipping emissions
Every month, Offset calculates the total emissions generated by your shipped orders, and that number becomes your monthly Offset cost. The price is low—a few cents or less per order—and your Offset payments go towards forest protection initiatives. Charges will appear on your monthly Shopify bill, and you can opt out at any time.
Measure your impact
From your Offset dashboard, you can see the total amount of shipping emissions you’ve offset and the environmental impact benefit of those offsets, including how many trees you've paid to protect. You can share these environmentally-friendly statistics with your customers.
$3.60 per metric tonne of estimated CO2 emissions from shipping. Typically $0.005 to $0.10 per order.

I installed the app to see if, like one reviewer says below, an icon showed up during checkout. I tested it - it didn't. Since customers have no way of knowing that you are really doing this, it is rather useless. For all they know, we could just be greenwashing. I would use this app 100% if there were something that showed up on the website that customers could actually see and understand the contribution being made. Until it does, I will be looking for something else.
Hey, there. Thank you for taking the time to leave this review, we appreciate you bringing this to our attention. As mentioned in previous reviews, an icon can show up at checkout. We were not able to replicate this issue through regular usage or re-installation. Does the icon issue persist for you after re-installing our app?
While we’re not able to provide account-specific support via the Shopify app store, we’d be happy to take a closer look with you by assisting you through live chat, email, or callback. Please visit the Shopify Help Center (https://bit.ly/3gqKnPt) and log in to your account to create a support request. Thank you. -Marty, Shopify Support

This app won't install. It was on our old theme but once we upgraded and uninstalled it refuses to reinstall. There was potential but support form Shopify about why it won't install is null.
Contrary to what some previous reviews said, the little icon does show up during check out.
Overall it seems the app, icon and cause will be a nice addition to my shop.
BUT you have to be careful with your imported orders, as at the moment of writing this review it has difficulty distinguishing that recently shipped orders may have been marked as fulfilled elsewhere (Etsy, etc), and may charge you for those.
Thankfully customer service was able to sort through the initial confusions this caused and hopefully it will work as expected from now on.
