Crowdfunding With WordPress
Fundify is the first WordPress theme that lets you create your own crowdfunding website. If you have wanted a site like KickStarter or Indiegogo for your own projects, now you can have one using Fundify, the crowdfunding theme for WordPress.
Raise Money For Things You Care About
Raising money has never been easier. Tell people what you are doing and inspire them to contribute to your campaign. Offer creative rewards and perks for your backers. You can publish your own campaigns or build a community where people can submit campaigns to your site. Submitted campaigns will be “pending” until approved by the site administrator.
How It Works
- Create a campaign: Set a goal amount, a target date, and inspire people to contribute to your cause.
- Backer Rewards: Setup prizes and perks for your backers based on the amount of their contribution.
- Fixed and Flexible Campaigns: A fixed campaign will only collect funds if you meet your target goal. For projects where any amount of money raised is helpful, run a flexible campaign and collect the contributions even if you don’t meet the target goal amount.
Recognition and Interaction
Give credit to those who contribute to your campaign by listing the names of your backers. The comments feature in WordPress allows the backers to interact with the campaign authors.
Responsive Design and Up To Date Features
Fundify is not just an amazing WordPress theme for crowdfunding, it is a complete WordPress theme for business and blogging too! Fundify is coded with a responsive design which means it will look great no matter how you view the site. This makes your campaigns and your blog easily accessible to mobile devices, tablets, and desktops alike. Complete with responsive page templates for a contact page, full-width pages, archive pages, and more. Fundify is up to date with support for the latest WordPress features including the WordPress theme customizer introduced in WordPress 3.4. The theme customizer lets the site admin try out various theme options before applying them to the live site.
Fundify seamlessly integrates with Easy Digital Downloads for collecting your contributions. Use the WePay Payment Gateway or PayPal Adaptive Payments Gateway and only collect the pledged contributions if your goal is met. Otherwise, contributions will be collected when they are pledged. Contributions can be split between the campaign author and the site admin.
- This theme requires the free Easy Digital Downloads plugin to display the campaigns feature.
- Requires our free Crowdfunding Easy Digital Downloads add-on.
- Use of the WePay Payment Gateway or PayPal Adaptive Payments Gateway (paid plugins) suggested but not required.
Note: You can use any gateway you wish that is compatible with Easy Digital Downloads such as the free PayPal Standard gateway that is included with the plugin, just be advised that if you use a gateway that doesn’t support pre-approved payments your customers will be charged instantly instead of when the campaign ends/reaches its goal.
