Published by Salvador Briggman. Find him on Twitter.

You can now build a crowdfunding website just like Kickstarter or Indiegogo by using WordPress!

Just install one of these simple WordPress plugins, and you’ll enable crowdfunding functionality so that users on your site can launch and manage their own crowdfunding campaign.

When setting up a new WordPress website, I always recommend that my readers use Bluehost, what this website uses.

Using the plugins below, you can also set up your own crowdfunding site, so that you can raise money for a project or cause.

1. IgnitionDeck

IgnitionDeck is a powerful crowdfunding plugin that comes with a free crowdfunding theme! This plugin is also flexible and has a robust enterprise grade solution.

Like Kickstarter or Indiegogo, IgnitionDeck gives you a ton of real-time statistics regarding supporters and payments. Your site users will be able to run fixed or flexible crowdfunding campaigns. They can choose various contribution levels, stretch goals, and flexible campaign dates.

At the time of writing, basic pricing starts at $149 and professional enterprise grade pricing is only $449. I wrote another article on how to set up a site using this plugin.

2. WP Crowdfunding Plugin

The WP Crowdfunding Plugin is another solution that you can use to set up a fundraising or crowdfunding website.

With integrations including WooCommerce, PayPal, Stripe, and more, it’s dead simple to set up your new crowdfunding platform. Your users will also gain access to key functionality like project reports, front-end editing, email notifications, and more.

Finally, this plugin comes with a free theme! At the time of writing, you can get the plugin from $49 – $89.

3. Fundraising for WordPress Plugin

This plugin has been downloaded more than 50,000 times by users at wpmudev. You can use it to set up a crowdfunding or fundraising site similar to Kickstarter.

Similar to Kickstarter, users on your site will have access to a funding progress bar, be able to offer backers rewards to choose from, and have the ability to set a start and end date for their campaign. In contrast, you can set up one-time or recurring donation functionality.

This plugin costs $49/month via membership to wpmudev.

4. WP Crowdfunding

WP Crowdfunding is another plugin that you can use to set up a crowdfunding website. This plugin has over 600 active installs.

When you install the plugin, you’ll get a lot of the functionality that is common to many of the online fundraising sites. Users who sign up will be able to launch campaigns with a specific funding goal, campaign duration, reward tiers, and more.

5. Pick a Premium Theme

I put together an article with the top 11 WordPress themes that will make your crowdfunding platform look absolutely professional.

In this article, I share many other low-cost WordPress themes that you can install on your site. I think you’ll be amazed at the quality of website you can set up using WordPress.

Now a days, it’s getting easier and easier to set up an entirely new web venture. If you want to stand out, you have to put in the work to get your site up an running with reliable software. Then, you gotta go out there and market it!
