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 ‘register’ link in the top left-hand corner of the page, as you must be logged in to fund a Project.

As well as your name, you will be asked to prove you are over 18 years of age by selecting the tick-box – see our Terms & Conditions and Privacy Policy for details. Enter your email address and create a password for your account.

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’ menu at the top of any page to find a project you like.

 

If you have a project in mind, select the magnifying glass icon beside the ‘browse projects’ menu to search for it in the Search bar.

3. Start funding

Once you’ve found the Project you want, you can fund it right away by clicking the ‘fund this project’ 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 either of the green ‘fund this project’ buttons.

4. Choose your Reward

To choose a reward, simply click on the Reward you want.

If you would rather pledge a higher amount than the Reward price, 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.

7. Pledge complete – browse for other projects 

Congratulations! Your pledge is now complete. You can share this project on your social media, to help the Project Creator reach more Funders, and you can go to your account to check your pledge.

But first, check out the other projects recommended for you!

Happy Funding!
