Crowdfunding is Joomla! extension that provides functionality for building and managing websites for collective fundraising.

Users are able to publish their projects on the front page. They will use a Wizard, which will lead them step by step through the process and will facilitate the creating of their projects.

There are many standard things you might find in a crowdfunding platform - comments, updates, list of backers, rewards. Users are able to leave comments and to follow the process of projects in the section for updates.

The extension is gamified, which increases engagement and makes the fundraising an exciting experience.

The backers will discover campaigns on interactive and informative list. They can search or filter the ideas of innovators by place, categories and other criteria.

Users will be able to use campaign manager, information about all transactions, detailed statistics and other tools, that will help them to monitor what happens with theirs campaigns.

Funding goes through several steps and it is controlled by "Payment Wizard". It is possible to transfer money through PayPal, Blockchain, Coinbase ( Bitcoin ), Bank Transfer, iDEAL via Mollie, AuthorizeNet, WePay, Stripe,...
