What merchants think

Feedback submitted

Merchants find this app beneficial for running crowdfunding and pre-order campaigns directly on their sites, helping to reduce waste and inventory costs. It's praised for its easy installation, intuitive interface, and non-interference with orders. The responsive customer service is also appreciated. Merchants have used it to recover from challenges and launch new products. However, some merchants have requested additional features like embedding the block on other pages and clearer product variant displays.

It's a pretty simple and effective widget that appears on your product page and doesn't interfere with your orders or logistics at all. It doesn't have a lot of the extra features some other pre-order apps have like delayed/partial payments, etc., but it's not meant to be that. I can handle those details in my admin and with my 3PL, and this just does a great job of showing the goal and creating urgency.
My only feature request is to be able to embed the block on other pages in my store via the Theme Editor. Currently, every campaign is tied to a specific product and product page.
Customer service was also very helpful in helping me customize the look and functionality right away!

This is a great app that is simple to set up and get running quickly. I was a bit nervous about starting a crowdfunding campaign on my Shopify site but we got funded within two weeks! Customer service was really fast and helpful when we had questions too. I'd highly recommend this app.

Our courier service lost thousands of dollars worth of inventory for a product launch and we were able to recover in part because of this app! Made it super easy for us to crowd fund / pre-sell to produce a new batch of inventory with the support of our customers and to turn a tough situation around. It's easy to use and install. I highly recommend it for anyone seeking to launch a crowd-fund campaign!

Incredibly helpful and thorough in helping me setup the app with our existing page builder! Very friendly customer service. Also its easy to integrate products between Crowdfunder and Shopify.

I would give this app no stars, if I could. There is no way to uninstall the application, once it's on. I have been trying for hours, to get rid of it and they charged me before I could figure it out.

I'm sorry you had a frustrating experience with Crowdfunder. We received your support email at midnight on Sunday, and responded six hours later. To remedy the situation, we've refunded your app charge in full, and I've requested access to your store. I'll give you a call this morning if I don't hear back. -k.

The app will not load. I've needed to make time sensitive changes to campaigns but this app is not reliable and will go days without loading. They just need to fix this reoccurring bug and then I would have a bit more trust in this app...

I took a quick and the issue is your trial is expired. On login, it'll ask you to approve app charges. Once you approve the app's charge, you'll be able to access it.

Pretty straightforward to use, without all the hoops I would have had to jump through to set up on a lot of the better-known crowdfunding platforms. A great boon to be able to host a crowdfunder directly on my shop without having to redirect customers to a completely different website.

自サイト内で予約商品の先着販売をするために利用しました。英語の管理画面ですが、機能も管理画面もシンプルなのでそこまで難しくありません。 (なぜかアプリ内の下層ページから別の下層ページへ遷移しようとすると、ずーっとローディング状態になり、一旦アプリのロゴをクリックしてトップに戻る必要があります。その分、星を1個減らしました。) また、当アプリ単体では、予約販売商品と発売済み商品を一緒にカートに入れた時の制御ができません。 総評すると、資金を集めるクラウドファンディング目的での利用ではないのですが、購入数が増えるたびに達成率が伸びるのでエンタメ性もあり、会員向けやコアユーザー向けの先着販売といった販促には大変有用でした。
