On behalf of the Rise of the East team, we hope this helps!
@dannyhajj I’m sorry if PayPal doesn’t support your country. It does support almost all countries in the world though, and it would be hard to find a good alternative. PayPal is easy to set up, supports most countries/regions in the world, easy to use for the person donating, and allows people to send real money (people have been suggesting we’d use a service like bitcoin, but the trouble with those is that you’d need to convert the bitcoin to real money to get much use from it).
I would really like to donate for this, but my PayPal doesn’t support my country. Is there any other way? :(
@Kieran I didn’t know that.
@Rens Thanks for the suggestion. I stuck with Pledgie this time because our last campaign was successful. But they have fees in place now, so our third one may not be here.
I’ll have a look at Kickstarter now, and will keep it in mind if we do another donation campaign after this one.
Edit: I had a look at Kickstarter. It probably won’t work for us. It requires a United states home address, U.S. credit card, U.S. social security number etc. I think it’d be best that we don’t tie our donations to a specific person/bank account/country. Pledgie is nice in that everything goes to Paypal, and we can then send that to wherever the money needs to be.
I believe that kickstarter is bigger than pleggie it will be able to target a different group than you get here.
Novacut raised about $25000 in I think about a month not sure.
You have to set a minimal fund with in a certain period of time. If you don’t reach it you’ll get nothing.
On kickstater if you donate you tend to get a something back
About the fees I’m not sure.
I hope this explains mine point of few.
@Rens Not sure what we would gain by spreading out the campaign over multiple places, especially since every place has its own fees. Feel free to explain a bit more why you think kickstarter would make a difference though.
Maybey Kickstarter.com can help with raising more moneny faster
