Practical ideas that can be implemented with reasonable time, money, and other resources

How campaigns work

  • Buyers pre-order a product
  • Funds are held securely by CrowdMall
  • If goal is not met the purchase is refunded
  • If goal is met, product goes to production
  • After delivery the creator is paid

We're not crowdfunding

We're crowd-supported pre-order shopping

What is crowdfunding?

Crowdfunding campaigns raise seed money for new projects from a large number of people

Crowdfunding is crowdsourced alternative financing that can be used to start a business. Crowdfunding typically takes place at the earliest stage of launching a business or product to fund R&D. There is no guarantee the product will ever make it to market or that the funds will be sufficient to deliver as promised.

What is pre-ordering?

A pre-order is a payment placed for an item that is developed but not yet released from an established business 

When you pre-order an item you commit to buying the product upon its release which assists the seller in forecasting inventory needs and ensuring a successful product launch. When you pre-order a product you are guaranteed either to receive it or get your money back.

The best of both!
