Akoova has created a ‘one of a kind’ cloud environment for e-commerce merchants using Magento 2. It involves a fully-automated platform, with high scaling capability – and is built on AWS. Akoova calls this K-Hosting. As Magento specialists, Akoova closes the gap between clients and developers via collaborative problem solving and knowledge sharing, with clients including Fred Perry, Moda Furnishings, BrewDog and Big Bus Tours.

By teaming up with fintech charity Pennies, Akoova can support clients to enable a micro-donations plug-in, offering retail customers the chance to donate a few digital pennies at the point of purchase.

This makes customers feel good about giving, and helps e-commerce businesses scale the impact they can make for charities that resonate with the ethos of their business. Retailers can then feedback, to consumers and colleagues, the difference that pennies at a time can make in local communities.

The Pennies functionality is quick and cost effective to implement at no cost.

Speak to your Akoova relationship manager today to explore using Pennies in your e-commerce journey, or contact Pennies to connect with our implementation team.

“Hosting is mission-critical to any e-commerce retailer. Some may well have experienced a chasm between operations and development. We’re confident that Akoova remedies some of these issues – and now, if Magento retailers want to increase their charitable contributions and do their bit for a number of good causes – our partnership with fintech charity Pennies and its micro-donation plugin provides the perfect tool to do this.”
