In December 2020 Ethical Consumer visited the Bookshop website FAQ section, which stated that it was a B-Corp. It stated " Certified B Corporations are businesses that meet the highest standards of verified social and environmental performance, public transparency, and legal accountability to balance profit and purpose."

The company website stated "Bookshop.org is an online bookshop with a mission to financially support local, independent bookshops." It stated "By design, we give away over 75% of our profit margin to stores, publications, authors and others who make up the thriving, inspirational culture around books! We hope that Bookshop.org can help strengthen the fragile ecosystem and margins around bookselling and keep local bookshops an integral part of our culture and communities."

The company was awarded a positive Company Ethos mark for being a B Corporation.
