How does the handling of payments work?

  • When a donation is made the admin will be able to see who made the donation by editing the project.
  • Admin can choose between collecting the fundings themselves or enabling the user to do so.
  • New in v2.0 – PAYPAL ADAPTIVE PAYMENTS! : In the theme options the admin can set up the percentage of commission he wants to keep on each project. The payments are paid directly to each of the Paypal accounts.
  • The admin have the option of choosing to collect the fundings or not if the campaign meets its goal.

How are the fundings collected?

The admin can collect the fundings at any time. There is an option in the admin panel to enable the project owner to collect the fundings:

  • If the option is enabled: project owner can collect at any time like the admin (regardless the project is sucessful or not)
  • If the option is disabled : project owner can collect only if project is successful

How is the project creator getting paid?

The user who creates a project will add its Paypal address to its profile which you will be able to see in the project summary as an admin. Once the project finished you can decide how much percentage do you want to keep from hi/her and pay the rest
