A platform comparison

Which crowdfunding website is best for you?

There are no shortage of options when it comes to picking a crowdfunding website to use. So which one is best for you? 

There are a number of things people look for when they're looking to raise money. Can I add rewards? How quickly can I get the money I raise? What fees do they charge and how does that compare? Or how much do my supporters have to pay when pledging on my project? And is there extra funding available for my project? 

We have two products at Crowdfunder, depending on what you need to raise money for. Here you can compare them, as well as the services of our competitors.

We have a number of brilliant features at Crowdfunder, depending on what you're looking to achieve with your project.
