Crowdfund From Your Own Website

Have A Successful Website? You Don’t Need Kickstarter, Indiegogo, Etc.

With over $3 billion pledged to crowdfunded projects, there's no doubt that crowdfunding has exploded and changed the nature of pre-orders for entrepreneurs and consumers. But you don’t need to use a service like Kickstarter if you’re already running your own popular website.

In fact, you may be better off crowdfunding on your website.

Why pay fees to Kickstarter if you already have your own following? By running crowdfunded pre-order campaigns on your website, you control the entire process from beginning to end. You'll save time, fees, and gain flexibility.

Enter Crowdfunder App

In 2016, we were approached by Brooklyn design studio FCTRY to build a crowdfunding page for their Shopify site. We did it, showed it to some folks, and immediately began getting inquiries to do it again for other stores. Meanwhile, the original campaign for FCTRY did over six figures in sales. Crowdfunded pre-orders make money. We built Crowdfunder App so that everyone can have access to the same marketing strategy used by some of the most successful Shopify stores.

Having a custom crowd-funding platform, hosted on your Shopify site, puts you in the driver's seat of your pre-order campaigns.

Frequently Asked Questions

Does it support my currency? Yes, we use your store's currency automatically.

Can I have multiple campaigns? Yes!

Can I change my goal amount after starting?
Yes! You can change the goal amount at any time.

Can my goal be total orders instead of a dollar amount?
Yes! You can choose from either a financial or quantity goal for your campaign.

Does this app change how orders, charges, or customers work?
No, it does not alter how orders, customers, or charges are handled. it only alters the product page. It's meant to add social proof and urgency to product launches to maximize revenue.

When are customers charged?
Customers are charged when they purchase your pre-order. You can capture funds immediately for your pre-order product as long as you communicate to your customers that you are charging them in advance for an item that will ship at a later date.

Can I change the progress manually?
Yes! If you want to "prime" your campaign by showing progress, you can set the inventory quantity to some negative value.

The app works fantastically! We successfully crowdfunded two products that customers had been requesting for years. It helped us cover our production costs and launch the products. The app is simple, but works great. Their customer service is also very responsive and I feel confident using this on my site.

The man knows Shopify....What more can you say! I like nothing more than a simple solution to a problem or lack of functionality and this App is that. Fast to install, does exactly what it is meant to with Kurt's exceptional customer service and follow up A+. I have been using this on my new site www.deltaechoapparel.com and it hasn't missed a beat.

Crowdfunder is a great app that allowed us to raise money right on our site. It was easy to use, did what it was supposed to do, and did it well! Support was helpful and responsive. Well done!

This app works great for any non-profit organization wanting to run a fundraising campaign online! Kurt was extremely helpful, quick to respond, and very professional. The app is easy to install and very simple to use once it is setup.

This is among the best experiences that we have had with Shopify app developers. Well worth the monthly investment.

I like this app a lot! Not just because it's simple and easy to understand, but because of the team behind it! Every question I asked was assisted within a day, and they were very thorough. To the degree that they were willing to go into my css and fix a loading issue that wasn't even their problem!

You guys rock, and I can't wait to see what other improvements you make to your app.

Before installing Crowdfunder, I was concerned about having to install a bunch of janky code in my theme, having to pay extra fees, or jump through hoops. As soon as I installed it, I was relieved. The app is easy to install, flexible, and easy to use. Plus the support from Kurt and Ethercycle is great. Our pre-order campaign is off to a strong start, and we're already looking to launch more products this way.

I'd recommend Crowdfunder to anyone who is looking to maximize sales when launching a new product to an existing store.
