Earlier today I went over the basics of what Kickstarter is and how it works. So this evening I wanted to share with you a little video on how you can back a project...
How do I pledge?
Once you've found a project that interests you, just click the green “Back This Project” button on the campaign page. Alternatively, you can scroll down to select a reward tier.
After you’ve selected your reward tier, you’ll be prompted to enter in your payment information. If your reward involves shipping, be sure to select the appropriate country from the drop-down.
If you don't want a specific reward tier, select "Make a pledge without a reward" and enter your desired pledge amount.
Lastly, click the “Pledge" button and you’ll be all set! You should receive a confirmation email after completing your pledge.
When is my card charged?
If the project you’re backing is successfully funded, your card will be charged when the project reaches its funding deadline. If the project does not reach its funding goal, your card is never charged.
Do I get notified if a project I'm backing succeeds?
Yes! We’ll send you an email notification when a project you’re backing ends, regardless of whether or not it met its funding goal.
Do let me know if you have any other questions or queries on how Kickstarter works.
