FAQ

What changes for my customers?

Besides the option that the CO2 compensation button provides, nothing changes. Your customers aren’t troubled with registration or added steps – they just check out as always, regardless of whether they opted for CO2 compensation or not.

Privacy considerations

We gather as little data as possible, specifically:
– the WordPress admin email address, for sending invoices
– limited information about transactions with CO2 compensation selected (orderid, order total and compensation amount)

Reviews

December 21, 2020
After some testing, I have the impression that it is just a fix percentage of the total basket added. There seems to be neither an option to set an individual values for emission for certain products or categories, nor is there any transparency where the values come from. It is therefore just a fancy checkout option for CO2 certificates with a 25% surcharge. Useless for me, why are the other reviews so positive?

Mooi initiatief om met elkaar een bijdrage te leveren aan CO2 reductie. Naast de samenwerking met onze klanten om bomen te planten via Trees for All, biedt het aanbod van Co2OK ons de mogelijkheid om verzending en productie van de producten in onze webshop te compenseren met onze klanten.De plugin is heel makkelijk in gebruik.

Our company has sustainability in our DNA. We love that CO2ok is offering services/great features to make more impact and to show that we care about our planet. We love the idea and we get great reactions from our customers. Milo helpt us with the installation and design. Keep up the good work guys.

Sustainability is at the core of our company. We do a lot to lower our footprint. We also like giving customers the opportunity to do more. They have made it simple to show the results on your site. The services were installed within 5 minutes and now no maintancende or effort is needed. The results of the A/B gave us wonderful (positive) insights.

We have been using the CO2 plugin for almost a year now, and are very satisfied. Customers only tick one box when paying for their order, and the CO2 emissions will be compensated for them. About 60% of our customers choose this option during checkout. It is a service we want to offer, as we sell sustainable/low waste/zero waste products in the webshop. Customers think extra about their purchase, and buy it consciously. The mission of CO₂ok is 100% in line with our mission, to create a more sustainable and cleaner world! Twice a year I receive an invoice for the CO2 compensation of all orders done with the plugin. So I hardly have any extra work! 🙂
