A Step-by-Step Guide to Funding a Project
Posted on Thursday September 22nd 2016
The design and ease of use of Fund it has always been at the centre of what we do. We tried to make sure Funding a Project would be as easy as pie, but, hey, things can always be easier! So that’s why we’ve made this step-by-step guide to walk you through the process.
1. Creating a Fund it account
Like all websites which take payments, we must capture some basic information to ensure your security, and so Project Creators can deliver your Rewards. If you’re new to Fund it, click the ‘sign up’ link in the top right-hand corner of the page, as you must be logged in to fund a Project.
You can choose whether you want to receive the Fund it newsletter, then you must agree to Fund it T&Cs and click ‘create my account’.
2. Finding the Project you want to fund
Use the ‘browse projects’ button at the top of any page to find a project you like.
3. Start funding
Once you’ve found the Project you want, you can fund it right away by clicking the ‘fund:it’ button under the image…
Or if you want to see all the details, click ‘read more’ and go to the Project page.
Once on the Project page, just click the green ‘fund:it’ button on the left panel under the image or video.
4. Choose your Reward
To choose a reward, just click the button beside the amount you want to pledge…
Of if you’d rather pledge a different amount, enter the amount in the ‘define your own amount’ field
If you want to support but don’t want a Reward in return, just tick the box.
You can choose whether to make your pledge public or anonymous, then tick the box to accept Fund it Terms & Conditions.
Click ‘fund this project again’.
5. Confirming your pledge
This page will show a summary of the pledge you are about to make. Click ‘fund this project’ to proceed, or click the ‘edit’ button to make a change.
6. Enter your credit/debit card details
Enter your card details on the secure Hosted Payment Page processed by Realex Payments, and click ‘fund this project’ again.
