Correspondingly, can you back a Kickstarter project after it is funded?

Kickstarter does not issue refunds. Transactions are between backers and creators directly. To request a refund for a pledge, please contact the project creator. To message a creator, visit the project page and click on the creator's profile name.

Subsequently, question is, what happens if my Kickstarter project fails? On Kickstarter, if a project does not reach its Goal by its End Date (aka if a projectfails”), then you do not get charged the amount that you donated to the campaign.

Additionally, can you run a Kickstarter campaign twice?

If you crowdfunding campaign has been complete you and you've delivered for that product than you can launch another campaign. If your crowdfunding campaign failed than you can relaunch but it is recommended wait a few months and have a real plan.

Can you have more than one Kickstarter account?

We don't permit running multiple projects at the same time, or launching a second project before fulfilling your first one. Moreover, running a project is a lot of work, and having more than one live project will likely dilute your attention and energy.

What happens if Kickstarter project is overfunded?

Sometimes when a project is overfunded, it lets the creator put that money back into the project to create something better for the backers and themselves. This often means that the creator can continue the project beyond Kickstarter — and backers are part of that story.

What happens if a Kickstarter project fails to deliver?

Kickstarter doesn't issue refunds, as transactions are between backers and the creator. In fact, Kickstarter never has the funds at all. When a project is successfully funded, money is transferred directly from backers' credit cards to the project creator's Amazon Payments account.

Do you have to pay back Kickstarter backers?

The answer is straightforward: yes, you have to refund the money raised. Backers don't give you money for anything. They invest their money in your project to have something back. So, if you are not able to provide them with what they paid for, you have to return them their money.

Are kickstarters worth it?

Surprisingly, the all-or-nothing nature of Kickstarter is its greatest asset in ensuring projects hit their funding goal. These are, by and large, the sort of projects Kickstarter excels at funding — projects where, if a certain amount of money isn't raised, the project simply isn't possible, or isn't worth it.

Can you back your own Kickstarter?

Kickstarter won't allow you to pledge to yourself, but you could easily pay four people $1000 to pledge $1000 and make your campaign a 'success', thus receiving the $6000 in legitimate pledges and $4000 of what is basically your own money.

Do you need an LLC for Kickstarter?

For this reason, it makes sense to launch a Kickstarter campaign through a legal business structure, such as a Limited Liability Company (LLC), as opposed to posting it as an individual. This is essentially a social security number for businesses, and you'll need it to open your business bank account.

What do Kickstarter backers get in return?

What do backers get in return? Backers that support a project on Kickstarter get an inside look at the creative process, and help that project come to life. Project creators keep 100% ownership of their work, and Kickstarter cannot be used to offer equity, financial returns, or to solicit loans.
