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 I 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.

Awesome app, easy to install and set up crowdfunding projects! This suits our product amazingly well as we almost always need a minimum number of pre-orders before creating a new variation of our product is viable, and we now have this to manage them with total transparency for the customers!

With a bit of planning it also works well for offering group buy pricing too which is great!

If you run pre-orders or group buys, this is a no-brainer!

We needed to quickly set up a fundraiser and we used this app. It was so easy to use and actually helped motivate people to donate. I totally recommend this app for fundraisers, donation or crowdfunding. Also the support is awesome too.
