Getting started with the pledge manager and late pledge

To start a project, go here and choose "External campaign," and add the required information.

You'll be asked about the funding and backer number of your crowdfunding campaign, as well as the campaign currency. You'll also have to choose if you're acting as a business or an individual creator.

Once you fill them in, you can move to project settings or the project dashboard.

Choosing between the late pledge and pledge manager

Late pledge - when you collect pledges after funding your campaign without defining shipping costs. You don't have to use this stage; you can move on directly to the pledge manager.

Pledge manager - when backers can make the final choice on their products, provide shipping details, and pay any outstanding fees (such as shipping fee or the amount for any extra products they added). You can launch the pledge manager after you set up shipping.
