All Projects must have rewards.
Having too many rewards may not be a good thing, as is too few. We expect the number of rewards to range from 5-10, but mostly falling in the 5-7 range.
The minimum reward value a Project Creator can choose is currently €5 (or £5 if from NI). We will look at this in the future to see if this can be reduced, but for now, this is the minimum we must adhere to. There is no maximum – in fact, you should put in a high value reward – you never know; someone might just be very interested in what you have to offer!
Project Creators should be as passionate about their rewards as they are their Project.
Be very clear about what’s included in each reward (and what’s not included). Project Creators may for example wish to make the rewards accumulative. For example, the reward for €30 may include everything contained in the reward for €20. If so, this should be stated clearly.
Try to make sure your rewards represent value to your Funders. If, for example, you’re offering a copy of your book for a pledge of €50, and the book can be bought in a shop at a later date for €20, a potential Funder might just consider waiting until it’s published
If your rewards include postage of items to Funders, you might consider asking overseas Funders (in the reward description) to add on a bit to their pledge to cover P&P.
There is ‘maximum available’ field for each reward. This field is optional, but it is there to use if you have a limited number of a particular type of reward. If not, just leave it blank.
Finally, not all rewards have to be for different amounts; you may for example have one reward for €50 offering a t-shirt and book, and another for €50 offering tickets.
