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.

Recent Updates

Crowdfunder is continually improved based on your feedback.

Our most recent update dramatically improves load times while making every text field editable and adding advanced customization options for theme developers.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q - Does it support my currency?

Yes, we use your store's currency automatically.

Q - Can I have multiple campaigns?


Q - Can I change my goal amount after starting?

Yes! You can change the goal amount at any time.

Q - Can I customize Crowdfunder?

Yes, Crowdfunder uses three Liquid snippets that can be modified with only basic knowledge of HTML and Liquid. If you do not feel confident with coding, we recommend that you use a service like HeyCarson.

Q - 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.

Q - Can I set Crowdfunder up to receive donations instead of pre-orders?

Yes! You can accept pledges by adding them as variant options in your product. For example, you'd create a product option called "Support Level" and then include $5,$10,$25 as the options with the price set to match.

Q - 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.

Q - 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.

Q - 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.

Also amazing apps for crowdfunding.


Useful app. Simple, clean interface and relatively easy to embed wherever you like, even with zero experience of HTML.


We've been using this for a few weeks now and it's working magically! The newest update has allowed us to customize it to our specific and unique needs and it's added a touch of fun to our preorders. Easy to install, use, and change up as we move along. Also comes with amazing customer service which is a MAJOR plus! Highly recommend if you're looking for something within this realm! A++++


Great app. Does what it says it'll do and the customer service is impeccable if you have questions
These guys are pros


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.


Great and timely support. Amazing app that really extends functionality on the Shopify platform. Thank you Kurt for such a great app that allows us to fund future products.
