How does it work?
A collection page featuring reward and add-on products should be created by the store to represent each pledge level and serve as the survey and landing page for the designated backers. Crowd Control imports product data from these collections to create and deliver discount or gift card codes to backers based on the checkout costs (i.e. price + shipping) for product quantities defined by you for each pledge level.
Unless payment for shipping is required, surveys provide a payment-free checkout when a backer selects only the items defined by you. Payment for add-on items is captured through your store’s standard payment gateways. All surveys completed at checkout are created as orders on your store.
Shipping and fulfillment
Since each backer survey is created as an order on your store, you can save time and money by using your preferred fulfillment solutions to purchase postage and ship rewards. Order and shipping confirmation emails are automatically sent to backers using your established workflow.

Most recent reviews
The biggest appeal with Crowd Control was the ability to use the existing operations for our well-established store to deliver rewards to our 9700+ backers. The easy add-on sales are a nice plus (almost 10% bought add-ons) but I think the best part is the long-term value that we gained. Requiring backers to visit our website and become part of our customer management and marketing strategies is invaluable. I wish this app had been around for my first Kickstarter project.
Crowd Control was great. The team is super helpful if you have any questions. This was a no brainer for us because there are always stragglers to fill out the KS surveys. My campaign from 2015 is still has outstanding surveys. For my latest campaign this was fantastic because it takes the leg work out of getting surveys to late backers. Plus it allows us to easily track returns and replacements directly through our shopify store.

I really enjoyed using Crowd Control for my Kickstarter back in 2018 and I know it has only gotten better since then.
Going straight from Kickstarter to Shopify was super valuable when I was managing and full-filling orders 9 months after the Kickstarter was complete. I could place new orders, sell them directly through Shopify POS, and manage all original backers all in one place. So that every order regardless of platform or time were routed through the same system and automatically sent to the distributor for shipping. Way better than managing my backer list, a backer survey, and another e-comm platform and trying to make sure there were no loose ends. Highly recommend!
