PledgeBox offers its survey services to Kickstarter and Indiegogo crowdfunders after their campaigns have ended, which is useful for things that don't normally work in crowdfunding platforms, such as:

  1. Collecting Shipping fees and Taxes after campaigns ends, 🌟🌟🌟
  2. Recover the Pledge Payments, 🌟🌟🌟
  3. Selling more Products, 🌟🌟🌟
  4. Digital Products Delivery,🌟🌟🌟
  5. Enhance Orders Management,🌟
  6. Shipping Tracking🌟

PledgeBox specializes in Pledge Management and helps crowdfunders to incredibly boost their campaigns. Without PledgeBox, many tasks become more difficult.

Our goal is to assist all creative products can be shipped successfully after being funded, while keeping costs as low as possible. (There are no fees if only collecting shipping information with PledgeBox Survey System.)

Particularly, Top 10 Tech & Design projects from Kickstarter in 2021, including 5 projects use PledgeBox ERP system to manage orders efficiently. 

Benefits of managing products/orders:

  1. Rematch the items in the reward level - clear the previous invalid items,
  2. Offer options/variants for the products - i.e. backer get to pick a specific color, size, style or upgrade the product parameters, etc.
  3. Change SKU - improve the efficiency of products distribution greatly,
  4. Modify the order of backers -  i.e. email address, delivery address, products, transaction, etc.

About shipping, due to the increase in shipping fees imposed by COVID-19, you can collect reasonable shipping fees from backers who require the pruducts urgently and ship them in advance. Also the platform commission will be dropoed from 5%(Kickstarter/Indiegogo) to 3%(PledgeBox), even only 1%(PledgeBox).

About delivery, PledgeBox system supports uploading logistics orders, tracking logistics progress, and notifying backers of the delivery by email.

About digital products, it is guaranteed to only offer your backers to download the digital products (e.g. pictures, games, books, ZIP, etc...) within the time/times you want.

As a Backers, Once the campaign is fully funded, All backers will receive a “Response email” invitation to access the Survey Page 4 steps to complete:

1. Check Reward  -> 2. Choose Add-ons(optional) -> 3. Submit Shipping Info🌟  -> 4. Final Confirm

Backers also can update shipping address and email address by registering a PledgeBox account, reduce the workload of the creator.

Summarize

PledgeBox fills the service gap when products need to be shipped and delivered, offer services that crowdfunding platforms do not provide. The benefit to backers is the opportunity to share the latest cutting edge products from creators, to build a better future together.
