Hi,

I really like the sound of Fundify and would like to purchase it for a new UK based CF platform, however we need to use Go Cardless to process payments rather than Paypal.

Is there a way to integrate this and how difficult would it be? Also are you planning on adding this in any update soon as quite a few major UK CF platforms are using Go Cardless?

Thanks!

Astoundify

Hello taziz2,

Thanks for your interested in our Fundify crowdfunding theme.

Go CardLess is already supported by the Fundify theme, you can purchase the Payment gateway here:

That’s great! Thanks for getting back to me. So if I was to purchase the gateway, is it quite a straightforward job to change the payments system from Paypal to Go Cardless?

Default-user

I also have a few more questions:-

- I want to add a forum to my site – do you have any solutions that you recommend which work well with Fundify? - Do you have a list of the filters/sort by which people can search projects? - Is it possible to search projects by location? - Does Fundify have options to Overfund a project, in case a funder pulls out after the funding is finished, so another funder is already in place to make up the shortfall?

Thanks,

Astoundify

Question: So if I was to purchase the gateway, is it quite a straightforward job to change the payments system from Paypal to Go Cardless?

Answer: Its easy as installing a new plugin and activating the plugin and then filling out the Go Cardless API information in the WordPress backend, very simple!

Question:I want to add a forum to my site – do you have any solutions that you recommend which work well with Fundify?

Answer: I would recommend using the BBPress plugin: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/bbpress/

Question: Do you have a list of the filters/sort by which people can search projects?

Answer: You can sort/filter by categories, and the site admin can create unlimited categories in the WordPress backend.

Question: Is it possible to search projects by location?

Answer: Yes, just add locations into each campaign then when searching you will find each location.

Question: Does Fundify have options to Overfund a project, in case a funder pulls out after the funding is finished, so another funder is already in place to make up the shortfall?

Answer: Yes, you can overfund projects there aren’t limits to how much money can be collected.

Thanks.

I have purchased the theme and it seems like the amounts people can donate is restricted, i.e. people can only donate an amount associated with a reward, rather than donating any amount. Is there a way to allow people to donate whatever amount they like (above a set minimum). For example if I have reward parameters set for rewards at £10, £20, £30 and £50….how would someone invest £2000 and it to work logically (so they could still get an appropriate reward).

On Kickstarter for example people can invest whatever amount they like and select a reward.

Is there a way of solving this?

Thanks,

Astoundify

This feature will be released in 1.3 of the Fundify theme and 1.3 of the Crowdfunding plugin.

Hi, I would just like to clarify something regarding a point above. Are all projects automatically capable of overfunding by default, or does something have to be selected in admin panel to allow selected projects to be overfunding capable?

Thanks,

Astoundify

All campaigns can be overfunded if the deadline of the campaign has not finished.

Hi guys, can we customize this crowdfunding theme to accept payments through a bank’s API directly instead? Would there be a fair amount of work to do this or fairly straight forward?

Apologies if this question has asked been asked previously in the comments, I haven’t gone through all of them.

Thanks.

Astoundify

Question: can we customize this crowdfunding theme to accept payments through a bank’s API directly instead? Would there be a fair amount of work to do this or fairly straight forward?

Answer: I would recommend using Stripe or PayMill payment gateways which both work with our Fundify theme, you do not need a merchant account and both gateways deposit funds into bank accounts on a daily basis.

Great template! I have a few questions prior to purchase.

Is it possible to create the same rewards for everyone that starts a campaign? I want people to sign up but have the same rewards per dollar amount funded. So, as soon as you sign up on my site, their rewards will already be detailed. Is this possible?

Thanks in advance for your response!

Great update! I will like to introduce an affiliate program in our crowdfunding site since you are using EDD will the following addon achieve that? https://easydigitaldownloads.com/extension/affiliates-pro-integration-pack/ Thanks

Astoundify

You can use that yes, or you could use http://www.affiliateroyale.com/ also :)

Default-user

I am not sure http://www.affiliateroyale.com/ will work. I am trying to pay commission to an affiliate that refers a “campaign author”. For instance, if the campaign created by referred author raises $1000, then affiliate gets 2.5% of the amount. I am thinking the EDD addon will be best fitted to track the commissions in the market place. What do you think?

Default-user

Hi, Do you know of any update on the http://www.affiliateroyale.com/ + EDD

Astoundify

I spoke to the developer over on Easydigitaldownloads.com and he said he hasn’t heard anything since that last tweet :(

Default-user

Hi, I just realized that the affiliate pro from EDD might not work for what I need it for. I need to be able to offer % commission of the monies raised by campaign author(seller) to the affiliate that brought the campaign author. I think the EDD affiliate is for referring contributors(buyers) and not campaign authors(sellers). Do you have any suggestions? Thanks

Astoundify

I would recommend getting in touch with the developers of Easydigitaldownloads.com to see if they have any suggestions for you.

I know basic html and css (very basic). I have some questions: 1. Am I able to customize the theme so that a campaign is added by admin only and not for general public? 2. How easily can I customize the pre-defined terms/labels: “Campaign”, “discover”, “funded”, “pledged”, “contribute now”, “backers” and also the folder path? I am wanting to build a site which is not a traditional crowd funding site, so therefore I want to avoid using the terms “campaign”, “pledge” and “funded”. 3. Rather than actually contribute money, can a user simply “pledge” their interest without actually making payment.

Astoundify

Question: Am I able to customize the theme so that a campaign is added by admin only and not for general public

Answer: Yes, you can create campaigns in the WordPress backend and turn off the front end “submit a campaign” form if you wish.

Question: How easily can I customize the pre-defined terms/labels: “Campaign”, “discover”, “funded”, “pledged”, “contribute now”, “backers” and also the folder path? I am wanting to build a site which is not a traditional crowd funding site, so therefore I want to avoid using the terms “campaign”, “pledge” and “funded”.

Answer: You would create a new language file using the .po and .mo file we include with the theme and change the wording for all the terms you wish to change then set the theme to use this new language file and your site will now use the new terms without having to edit the themes PHP or CSS.

Question: Rather than actually contribute money, can a user simply “pledge” their interest without actually making payment.

Answer: You cannot pledge interest, you can pledge BitCoins in the next update of the theme though :) But you can’t currently pledge anything other than money.

Default-user

Thank you for your very prompt response! Is there an easy way I can modify the theme so that a user can pledge interest? For example I have a $30000 goal. With option to pledge $10000 with limit of 3. The user would pledge but no payment is required to be processed. I want to be able to contact backers directly via email or telephone.

I have another question. Is the register form customizable? To include a field for telephone number?

Thanks Joomlabrand!

@Khilam, Yes, I think you can make it private by unpublishing the pages used for “starting a campaign” 2. You can edit the language file to replace those words. Instructions on how to do it is in the manual that you get when you purchase theme. Hope that helps

@khilam “Thank you for your very prompt response! Is there an easy way I can modify the theme so that a user can pledge interest? For example I have a $30000 goal. With option to pledge $10000 with limit of 3. ” One approach – you can set the rewards limit in backend. You can customize the test payment gateway to simulate a pledge interest. or just build a custom payment gateway that will be like purchase order only. hope that helps

Hi guys,

First of all, very good theme and thank you. Had some problem when first bought but after some configuration, looks good now. Now my Initial Phrase Crowdfunding site works perfectly well :):):)

Just one question. I receive an email stating that there is an upgrade in the theme. How do I do so? I remember reading it somewhere but I can’t find it!

Referring to the top post (& to be sure): 1. Download the file 2. Update the plugin first 3. Upload the theme via Wordpress

Right?

Also, as silly as it might sound, updating it will not mess with my WP configurations right?

Awaiting your reply and thanks!

Astoundify

Please refer to this post: http://support.appthemer.com/topic/new-release-fundify-1-1-1-plugin-1-0-release/

We have instructions on how to upgrade, this will not “mess” with your WP configurations.

Thanks!

I’ve purchased the theme. While I intend to have multiple projects listed in the future, there is only one project that I have to launch soon. Will this look OK with just one crowdfunding project? Any suggestion on how I can prevent the site from looking so empty with just one project until I add more?

This is not as easy to setup as I was expecting.

Astoundify

You can change the hero unit to just show the one project and it will only display that until you add more projects to the site.

Go to the theme customizer and in the “Hero Unit” settings and select “Single”

Hi, i would like to use the theme for music funding… i would like to know if its possible to set up the plugin so that everybody who finds a “song” can download the track ones its fully funded? Example: 1 artist creates project with amount needed to record a track, make video, etc… 2 funders pledge to “produce” the track 3 goal is reached, artist records song and uploads it 4 everybody who paid for the track can download it for free

Is that complicated to do? Or does it require customization?

Astoundify

Yes you can use a plugin such as https://easydigitaldownloads.com/extension/audio-player/

Once the project is fully funded the track can be downloaded as a digital file.

But it sounds like a bit of a customization of the theme.

Hello,

Firstly, thank you for all the hard work in putting this theme together. Its awesome

I have a question and apologies if it has already been answered.

In the settings for the easy digital downloads, how do we get the PayPal Adaptive Receivers email to automatically update? As we would like the contributors email for paymenys. But obviously this will be different each time a new contributor pledges.

Thanks! Rob

Astoundify

It already updates for each campaign, the user creating the campaign adds their PayPal address when creating the campaign then once the campaign ends funds are then split with the site admin and the campaign author.

Yes, it comes with the demo content, we include instructions on how to import the XML dummy content that is included with the theme download files.

If we want to use your Fundify Theme for Corporate Intranet. Would there be a way to not have the payments process by paypal. Actually, we don’t want to process payments at all.

Instead of employees using their credit card, we would like to have the amount deducted from their payment roll at the end of month.

How can we achieve that with Fundify theme? Best!

Astoundify

You could use the Check extension for Easy Digital Downloads and then you could deduct the funds from your employee payroll at the end of each month. No payments would be taken by the Fundify theme.
