How the process works
This section provides information on how backing and creating projects works such as how money gets collected by Sponsor4Change, whether pledges can be changed or canceled, and how creators can contact backers to provide rewards.
- Campaign Creators submit application to site, which
Certain situations may arise and we can reserve a charge on your card. Sponsor4Change and the payment partners on the site may charge you by the payment method you made for any amount up to the pledge you made at any time between the pledge date and the day funds are collected.
When it comes to changing the amount you pledged or canceling a pledge you can in fact do that with the exception of the last week of campaign. Contact us if you have any more questions concerning this topic. The date for incentives is the creator’s estimate and should be listed on the campaign. This date is not guaranteed to be fulfill by that date. Something can happen along the process which can cause delays. A creator may contact you in regards to your reward. Most likely the questions that they may ask you may relate to shipping the rewards that you asked for. Stay in contact with them because this can help with their turnover time. Sponsor4Change will not give refunds. Responsibility for finishing a project lies entirely with the project creator. Sponsor4Change does hold funds on the creators’ behalf then buys their products or services, but after that we cannot guarantee that a creators’ work will be fully completed based on the items we buy. All we can prove is that we gave them the tools necessary to take their ideas to the next level if they choose to use them that’s entirely up to them but we do know that these people can no longer just use the money that they collect for their own free will. Sponsor4change and our partners charge fees before we provide your items that your campaign lists. In some instances, pledges will not be collected, which might reduce the amount of funding you get. For example, some donors’ payment methods may expire before the campaign ends and if they don’t provide updated information for us we can’t guarantee that the amount of funding you receive will be exactly equal to the full amount pledged minus the fees we charge so that’s why we stress having multiple items on your budget. If payment/card disputes arise we will help you. Donors may dispute a charge to their bank/card issuer we will represent you in the dispute. We will inform you if a dispute has been made we may ask you to provide evidence for us so we can resolve the issue in your favor. If the donor wins the dispute we then will charge the card number that you provided us when you created your campaign. Every campaign will not launch as soon as possible. We reserve the right to not approve every campaign and some issues can possibly arise on the site. Do not think you’ll be able to immediately collect your product or service that you asked for. For instance, there will be a delay between the end of a successful campaign and being provided the items you asked for.
