How did we do it? How
did we make FundThis
Happen?

For FundThis, we were approached to build a clean slate of a crowdfunding platform that could host both reward-based as well as equity offerings. As we began developing the perk side, we began seeing opportunities to integrate features that other sites encourage to be outsourced–reward fulfillment, perk tracking, bitcoin acceptance, in-site strategy consulting, and others–resulting in one that provides to those seeking to fund their dreams a set of tools that no other platform can boast of.

Automated Reward Fulfillment

For this feature, we built a completely custom widget where users may drag and drop their own images, choose garments and colors, then launch their project and let backers customize their rewards. When the contributor selects their item and funds, both image asset and preview of finished product are sent via API directly to the fulfillment vendor who prints, packages and ships once the project has ended.

This means, for project creators, no more scrambling to locate a reputable printing vendor or third-party consulting group at the end of a campaign ~ all they have to do is add an image, select the contribution amount, and let FundThis handle the rest, freeing the creator to focus on promoting their campaign instead.

creation, tracking, fulfillment.

Developing the crowdfunding world’s first fully automated rewards builder presented many challenges: we were essentially asked for a Shopify-type app within a webapp. So how to translate a user-designed file into a real-world product without a single phone call or email?

It entailed several integrations between external APIs, payment processor, and custom backend to facilitate complete orders being sent sans human error, eliminating processing, printing, and shipping for the campaign owner. To simplify customer service for backers of creator-fulfilled campaigns, we implemented a perk tracking system that updates an easy-to-use table and automatically generates status notifications when backers provide feedback.
