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.
- 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
What's Crowdfunder *not* for?
Don't use Crowdfunder if you're...
- Building a marketplace
- Running Massdrop-style promotions

Excellent. Easy to load. Looks good. So much better than using a crowd funder site. Not only do you raise money but you also drive customers to your site, which is brilliant if there are other products. All queries dealt with quickly.
Kurt provided all the help we needed to get our campaign drafted. The app does everything that we need it to do and even though my coding knowledge is about as basic as can be, I was able to make some small changes to the style of the preorder display with the instructions provided. Kurt and team provide even more support through the resources they send out and the Youtube/podcast that they produce. Really helpful information in both. Great app!
A good app that does what it advertises. I tried it and it turned out we needed something a bit different. I did much appreciate the honest reminder mail to unsubscribe before the trial ran out. Not like a lot of "free trials" that are only intended to fool you into letting the "free" part lapse.
