Hi, this theme looks great and I can’t wait to use it. I have what may be a bit of a naive question about the payment gateway. Am I correct in assuming that when a pledge is made by someone no money is deducted until the end date – i.e. goal crowdfunding? As the admin, do I determine when funds are deducted or does it automatically happen at the project end date?

Astoundify

When using WePay, Paypal Adaptive Payments, or Stripe, money is never taken from the “Backers” it is pre-authorized meaning a charge will be pending on their credit card / PayPal account and funds will only be collected if the campaign is successful.

If you do not use one of these gateways funds are instantly taken from the “Backer” and you will need to issue refunds if the campaign is not successful.

A date of when the campaign ends is entered when creating a new campaign and once the campaign has ended the admin can then collect the funds for the campaign.

Thanks

Thanks so much! I have one follow up question… Is it possible to have different payment systems per campaign? For example, collecting a split payment for some campaigns, but releasing all funds to others?

Astoundify

This is not currently possible, sorry.

Hi I have just purchased this. Is it possible to customise this to a single campaign? I know that you have created campaignify for single crowd funding, however I want to customise the layout from the fundify theme. It’s much closer to the kickstarter layout.

Is there a way to call a single campaign either by name or post ID to be part of a template? Or even using shortcode to display within a post?

I am considering purchasing Fundify. I wanted to know if there is a way to “Save as Draft” the Start a Campaign form. Then the user would return to “Summit Campaign.” If custom work is required to make this happen, is there a way to associate the saved draft to a user-specific page?

Default-user

Another question: There is a Credit Card Info section in the demo. Is the acceptance of credit cards facilitated by PayPal by default?

Astoundify

Users can save their campaigns and come back and publish at a later date. This requires the user to be registered/logged in first though.

Accepting credit cards on site is done by either Stripe or WePay. PayPal does not support on-site payments.

Astoundify

Update: PayPal does support on-site payments if you are using the PayPal Pro gateway: https://easydigitaldownloads.com/extensions/paypal-pro-express?ref=7

Hello again,

I’ve got another question. In demo version I can see all campaigns posted on the main/front page. The page is set to show “ALL”.

Is there an option in backend to limit how many campaigns appear/show on the main/front page?

If website ends up with hundreds or maybe thousands of campaigns, and they all appear on the main page, it would be a mile long page, and imagine time it would take to load and open the page?!

Thanks.

Astoundify

You can control the number that shows on the homepage via the standard WordPress posts per page option.

hii, i will like to buy this theme,but i’d like to know if i can limit the number of post per column on the front page to 3. So that each poet becomes more visible

Astoundify

This is possible with some custom CSS done via a child theme.

Dang… Wow. Love the theme…. (I think) How many plugins does it actually take to run this beautiful theme? (learning curve?) I’m just needing a site for people to raise funds (Stripe) for our private school (one campaign). There is nothing to download (Easy Digital Downloads), and there is nothing else really fancy going on here. ...oh, wait, one more thing: We need the funds to process immediately; not at a pre-determined dollar amount. Astoundify, IgnitionDeck, EDD, Theme…. Sorry, but I’ve just confused the crap outta myself. Please un-confuse me a bit :-)

Astoundify

Hey! You may actually want to check out http://themeforest.net/item/campaignify-crowdfunding-wordpress-theme/4725411 which we made to focus on a single campaign.

Regardless of the theme, the required items are:

Theme Easy Digital Downloads Plugin (free) Crowdfunding by Astoundify Plugin (free)

If you are wanting to collect via Stripe, you need the Stripe payment gateway for Easy Digital Downloads which is $49. You can buy that here: https://easydigitaldownloads.com/extensions/stripe-payment-gateway—Otherwise you can use the built in PayPal Standard gateway if you decide against Stripe (although we love Stripe!)

With Stripe you can collect funds automatically.

Hope that helps! Let us know if you have any more questions.

Hi, considering purchasing the theme but have one question. Is it possible to modify the “Start a Campaign” form fields somewhere from the admin or is the form unchangeable? Referring to this form: http://demo.astoundify.com/fundify/start-a-campaign/

Astoundify

It is not possible in the admin, but with a bit of PHP/WordPress knowledge, the fields can be removed/added/rearranged.

Hi,

My friend just purchased this template and we are having problem activating the Crowdfunding by Astoundify plugin – it returns a “Server error”.

We are on WP3.6, Bluehost hosting. Any idea?

Thanks.

Hi Pre purchase question – would I be able to set up each campaign to be in a different currency and also that contributers could choose the currency they want for donations? Thanks

Astoundify

Hello

The admin sets the currency that all campaigns must use, campaign authors cannot choose a currency that they wish to be paid in.

Same goes for contributors. Thanks

Hi, I have a question regarding payments:

My host is Bluehost. I had another crowdfunding plugin that required Paypal IPN (instant payment notifications), but it wasn’t working and when I looked into it there were quite a few forums that discussed paypal IPNs inability to communicate with sites hosted on Bluehost. Do you know if Fundify customers who use bluehost have any known issues with getting crowdfunding payments using Paypal?

it’s the only thing that’s holding me back from buying this plugin!

Many thanks.

Adarsh

Astoundify

I’ve never heard from anyone saying they had an issue with BlueHost and using our Fundify theme, so no there are no known issues with BlueHost and Fundify.

Thanks! Adam

Default-user

Thanks.

I have another question: I want to create a website where people can create campaigns to raise money for my cause (the difference in this fundraising function being that the funds eventually come to my paypal account as opposed to the people starting the campaign). How did make fundify do this?

Astoundify

If you wan to collect the funds as they come in, you can just use the included PayPal standard gateway.

Otherwise a gateway like WePay or Stripe will allow you to create preapproved payments that will only go to you if the campaign is completed.

Default-user

the way payments come in are not a problem – it’s really about who the ultimate beneficiary is: we’re looking for a site where people can fundraise for us (the beneficiary is the site/our cause). Is this possible to do with Fundify?

Astoundify

Yes it is possible, you would use the PayPal standard gateway and ALL funds will be sent to your PayPal account and not shared.

Hope that helps.

Default-user

Yes, that does! Thank you. If you don’t mind, I have just one last question:

The charity that I run www.projectart.org has a lot of content on it, as you can see. Crowdfunding is not the focus of our site, but is a important feature. Is it possible to either:

1. Make the fundify theme content heavy, so that on the first page (home page) it doesn’t show crowdfunding campaigns below the banner, and would instead show content about our cause (such as facts etc). We’d like to embed videos etc.

Or

2. Make fundify a plugin and a not a theme, so that people can click on the fundraising option if they want to and be directed to a page that exclusively is meant for crowdfunding.

Hi, is there a my accounts page where a user can see all the campaigns he/she has contributed to? If there is none then how do I go about adding this functionality?

Thanks!

Astoundify

Yes, there is an included shortcode to list your profile information to edit, your contributions, and your pending/active campaigns.

Default-user

Thanks, I added that profile shortcode into a page, the profile information and your campaigns both come up just fine, however under your contributions, I get the following error:

Hello there,

I’m looking at purchasing fundify. Just wondering if you could please look into these question:

1. I’d like to have my site viewable in a number of languages – English, French and so on. How easy/difficult would it be to translate in a different language?

2. Are there any example sites which have deployed fundify?

3. What is the approval process? If the creator changes the details of a campaign does it need re-approval?

Thanks

Astoundify

1. Most people use a solution like http://wpml.org/ 2. Unfortunately we don’t maintain a list of deployed sites/a showcase. 3. The site admin must initially approve the campaign. Currently they do not need reapproval. If a pledge amount has been purchased, it cannot be changed, so this helps prevent people changing what they’ve promised.

Hope that helps! Let us know if you have any more questions.

Hello,

I want to use this pluggin to attend a competition. And then after I can buy this. But I have issue with it when i want to active this. Error message :”Fatal error: Call to undefined function edd_currency_filter() in /home/omobile/public_html/mobile/wp-content/plugins/appthemer-crowdfunding/includes/shortcode-submit.php on line 162” Ps help on this issue !

Astoundify

1. You need to be using one of our Crowdfunding themes using the latest version i.e 1.7

2. You need to install Easy Digital Downloads

Default-user

Yes when I try to active Easy Digital Downloads, I have “Not Acceptable An appropriate representation of the requested resource /mobile/wp-admin/plugins.php could not be found on this server. Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.”

Hi post sale question, can the payment gateway be set up so when the backer does send money the campaigner receives the money for a service that the campaigner has provided for that pledge, even if the campaign is not successful by the end date?

Also is it easy to set up chain payments, each time a pledge is made?

Astoundify

So you want to split funds immediately when a pledge is made? This is possible with PayPal Adaptive Payments.

Default-user

Thanks for the quick reply. Another question, is it possible to add additional pages to the campaigner page profile, so far you have comments, backer and edit campaign to choose from, I would like to added another called reviews, is this possible?

Secondly when the contribute now button is selected in a campaigner profile, is it possible that a booking calendar pops up rather then a pledge/payments window, so a backer can book an appointment with the campaigner before making a pledge?

Third Is it possible to customise the registration form?

Thanks

can the user edit their campaign after being created on the front-end of the theme and not have the user see the back-end of wordpress?

Astoundify

Yes, they can! the user never sees the WordPress backend with our theme and plugin. It looks like this: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/1657501/Screenshots/1j4ylzu3qhnr.png
