Congratulations on discovering a project that you’re eager to support! We’re thrilled to have you on board. To make a pledge, follow these simple steps:
- Ensure that you’re logged in to your Indie Birds account. If you don’t have an account yet, you can easily sign up for one on our website.
- Visit the project page of the specific project you wish to support. You’ll find a “Make a Pledge” button located to the right of the main image. Alternatively, you can scroll down to choose a reward tier. If a reward tier is no longer available, it will be moved to the bottom of the rewards column.
- If you prefer to support the project without selecting a specific reward, you can select the “Pledge without a reward” tier at the top and enter your desired pledge amount.
- If your chosen reward involves shipping, select the appropriate country from the drop-down menu and click “Continue” to proceed. For digital rewards, no shipping options will be available.
- On the next page, you’ll have the opportunity to confirm your chosen reward tier and add any additional support if desired. Once you’ve reviewed and confirmed your selection, click the “Pledge” button.
- If the project creator has included add-on rewards, you’ll be presented with the option to include these in your pledge. Simply click the “Add” button next to each available add-on you wish to include.
- Take a moment to carefully review your pledge details, including any selected add-ons and the shipping destination. When you’re ready, click “Continue” to proceed to the payments page.
- On the payments page, enter your payment details and check the box to confirm your understanding that rewards are not guaranteed.
- Finally, click the “Pledge” button to complete your pledge. Please note that each pledge can only be associated with a single debit or credit card.
Once your pledge has been successfully processed, you should receive a confirmation email confirming your status as a backer of the Indie project.
If you do not reach a “Thank you!” confirmation page or fail to receive a confirmation email titled “You just backed [Project Name],” it is possible that your pledge did not go through. In such cases, we recommend attempting the pledge process again.
Thank you for supporting the Indie community and contributing to the success of creative projects!
