FAQ

What is "A KickIn Crowd? How Does it work?

CrowdFunding is a collective network of people who pool their money and resources together. "KickIn" Definition: contribute, VERB, synonyms: donate, chip in, pitch in, provide, commit. A KickIn Crowd is an internet platform that allows your network efficiently help you reach your financial goals.

How Does Crowdfunding Work?

1. You create a CrowdFunding page and set the target amount you need to raise.

2. Send the URL of the CrowdFunding Page to the people who want to collect money from.

3. People go to your CrowdFunding Page and send you the money with their credit card.

The money goes directly from PayPal to your account, minus a fee to A KickIn Crowd. We never touch your payments.

Who Can Use Crowdfunding?

Everyone who needs to raise money for a creative project. We're a great way for filmmakers, musicians, designers, sports teams, television producers, writers, illustrators, curators, performers, and others to bring their project, events, and dreams to life.

The word “project” is just as important as “creative” in defining what works on A KickIn Crowd. A project is something finite with a clear beginning and end. Someone can be held accountable to the framework of a project — a project was either completed or it wasn’t — and there are definable expectations that everyone can agree to. This is imperative for every FundraisingScript project.

We know there are a lot of great projects that fall outside of our scope, but A KickIn Crowd is not a place for everything. Learn more about our project guidelines.

Is Crowdfunding An Investment?

No. A KickIn Crowd is a REWARDS based crowdfunding platform. All money transfers via PayPal/A KickIn Crowd, and there is no cash return for contributors, but there may be awards, prizes and gifts from the project creators.

 

Is It Secure?

The CrowdFunding payment process is completely secure. A KickIn Crowd never touches your money. All transfers are handled by PayPal. We simply take a fee from your successful projects.

Do You Save My Info?

PayPal processes all of the transactions for A KickIn Crowd. No one at A KickIn Crowd actually sees your credit card information. We are the pass-through portal to PayPal.

We therefore cannot store your information on our servers.
