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.

Suggested Uses

  • Offer pre-orders as a way to gauge demand for products
  • Raise funds for a cause or charity
  • Launch limited special edition of your best-selling products

We uninstalled the app and a campaign still stayed on the product page. Thank goodness we made a duplicate of our theme. Needs more functionality for the price. Should have more options. It does EXACTLY what it showcases on the demo and that's about it. It is not worth the money, in our opinion.

Thank you for considering our app for your store and for sharing your experience so we can learn from it.

To protect merchants from mistakes and bad actors, when uninstalling an app in Shopify, all apps simply lose their access to your store. No code is changed or removed on uninstall. For Crowdfunder, we have a quick solution: re-install Crowdfunder to restart your free trial, delete your existing campaigns, then uninstall Crowdfunder again. (You should have received an email with these instructions immediately on uninstall as well.)

As for the app doing exactly what its advertised to do and nothing more, our policy for choosing new features is to to pick the ones which will bring the most value to as many of our customers as possible. We're a really small team with a long list of ideas. If you'd like to submit a feature request, we'll try to add your feature after we've received a few other similar requests.

Hope that helps!

Just got the app up and running, very quick and complete customer service and I'm excited to use this tool. Was exactly what I was looking for.

I've only run 1 campaign, but it did really well. I just updated my theme and needed some assistance from support. They got back to me right away, and it was on a Sunday! I'm very impressed!
