Once your campaign gets funded, you can start working on the next stages of your project. Go to the project dashboard to choose the next stage. You can launch a late pledge stage or a pledge manager.
NOTE: The fees for pledge manager and late pledge are different. See more here.
Late pledge setup
To open the late pledge stage, you need to go through our checklist. Adding proper information will enable the "submit for launch" button, and we'll verify your setup. If anything's missing, we'll let you know.
Once you click "Submit for launch," you'll enable the late pledge to all users. In the late pledge, defining shipping costs is not necessary, and backers won't be charged for shipping until the pledge manager.
Pledge manager setup
When you launch the late pledge stage, you can start working on the pledge manager that will be launched later on.
