Kickstarter Clone - The crowdfunding script for startups
Why Kickstarter clone script?
Fundraiser (A Kickstarter clone script by NCrypted®) enables you to create a fundraising or crowdfunding website where you can invite fundraisers and donors (backers) to get the crowd or people to help fund for member's project(s). It is the platform where people from around the world can post their projects to raise fund from a crowd of investors. NCrypted's Kickstarter clone is an advanced and innovative fundraising / crowdfunding platform that lets fundraisers indulge in projects for the purpose of raising funds from a crowd, hence it is also known as a crowdfunding website or a crowdfunding platform. Contrary to Kickstarter ("all or nothing") and other such crowdfunding websites, our Kickstarter clone script as a social fundraising tool guarantees that the fundraiser can keep all the money you raise even if you don't reach your goal. So, it is really up to you as to what kind of fundraising model you want for your own kickstarter clone and manage this module accordingly from the Admin Panel Console.
Kickstarter clone, which is a crowdfunding script, facilitates the fundraiser to get funding for their projects through social networking sites. It follows the concept of all-or-nothing funding or the other way around, depending upon your selection. Visitors' projects are funded full much before the time expires or before money exchanges hands.
Kindly have a look at some of the core modules and features that come loaded with this innovative Fundraiser script to get an idea of what we are talking about.
Salient Features of Kickstarter Clone Script
Real-time Funding Progress
How much funding has been done on a particular project can be viewed in real-time with the funding progress bar. If a project successfully meets the funding goal in a given timeline/deadline then the project is marked as 'Successful', failing which makes the project tagged as 'Unsuccessful'. It is up to you as to decide whether you still want the fundraiser to receive the funds in case of an unsuccessful fundraising campaign or return the money to the donors.read more
Selection of Payment Gateway
Not all payment gateway service providers will support crowdfunding and fundraising platforms and websites. The reason is simple. Unlike other type of websites and website clones, crowdfunding websites such as kickstarter clone that NCrypted has designed, the problem is more related with unsuccessful projects which have failed in raising the goal/target funds. When a project becomes unsuccessful, the money has to be refunded to all the donors/backers of/for that project - if you have set the pricing policy to 'all of nothing'. 3rd party payment gateways such as Paypal treat this 'refund' transaction as a normal transaction only and hence you, being the website owner or the webmaster, unnecessarily end up paying twice the commission to such a payment gateway service provider. This will not work as a best solution to have as per your business model or plan. Selecting the partner wisely when it comes to payment processing hence becomes crucial.
After years of our experience in building crowdfunding and fundraising websites such as kickstarter clone, we have identified and integrated a hand-picked list of payment gateway service providers which support crowdfunding business model and 'refunds' as refunds only without further cutting any commission off of that transaction.read more
