    If I purchase the extended package, can I remove all fundraising script branding?

    Yes. You can remove it easily.

    Questions  (posting here because I think others will benefit too) - all my questions pertain to the basic version:

    1.  I did not see in the admin/demo:   Is there a place where we can set a fee for the transaction (like Kickstarter, they take 5% of the total funding for the project, and another 2% for the transaction processing for amazon) - I did not see anything indicating this could be done. 

    2. speaking of transactions - I didn't see anything specifically about the process for releasing funds to the successful project.  Is this automatic?

    3. the "wallet" - are we required to use this or can we use paypal or some other credit card processing:

    4. In the comments before this - there was mention of removing the branding - this is surprising to me since we are getting source code.  Are there restrictions in in the basic version that prevents us from branding the site completely with our brand?  (this implies we're not getting all the sourcecode)

    5. you mention you don't support installations on Godaddy.  Does this mean that the script(s) won't work on Godaddy?  Or that you have other reasons.

    Thanks!

    Answer :

    1. Go to admin -> Payment gateway-> select payment gateway and here you can setup your fees.
    2. Yes. it is automatically
    3. You can use any payment gateway
    4. You will not get all the source code. You can remove our name and branding from any page without any issue.
    5. Godaddy is worst hosting and they don't have required configuration for this script.

    OK thanks for the answers.

    regarding #5  (while I agree with you, generally, it is better to give the technical reasons why you won't, or cannot, work with godaddy - otherwise it can appear that you have a personal dispute with the company, or perhaps have other hosting you to sell us.

    --- 

    I am waiting for a new domain to activate, and new hosting to activate, before I purchase the script/system and get started.  

    Oh - wait - how does that work - do you provide a link to an installer, ftp, and then I install - or do you need to manually install it on our hosted/server?

    PS - I am not understanding how the platform is 100% PHP scripted and yet we are not getting 'sourcecode'  (sorry if this seems like an under-informed question - but I think other semi-technical might have the same question).   What am I not understanding?

    Thanks!

    You will receive one link for download software and video tutorial for all most all the feature.  Follow the video tutorial for installation part.   Any can installed easy by follow the installation step. It is like word press installation.  You required FTP / database detail and check following server requirement :  https://fundraising.zendesk.com/entries/21012522-server-requirement

    In basic package. We are not providing installation service. We will charge $50 extra for that.

    For source code part please see this link : http://fundraisingscript.com/faq.html specially question 3

    I am ready to order - but a couple of last questions  (I don't want to click "buy" until I understand)

    1.  Can I order the $50 setup for the basic site at the same time - or is this a separate process.

    2.  Do you need all the info for my domain and hosting when I click buy?  Or is this later?

    3. How long does it typically take for the site to be installed, once I order?

    Thanks

    I look forward to using the product!

    OK...since I do not know how to code...how much would you charge to change "Featured Projects" to "Featured" and to remove the browse categories?

    How do I change the default website templates design?  Is there any documentation online or with the script?

    Also, for the basic package it comes with a 15 days support, does it means 15 days after we purchased the script and found bugs/issues, we won't get any support from your developers?

    If that's the case, how do we get continues support?

    My question is:   I saw CJ ask about the releasing of funds for successful projects being automatic, and I was able to find the section where you choose what the commission fee is to be taken off.  I assume that commission fee also automatically kicks into the admin paypal account?

    Also related....Kickstarter operates similarly as far as a 5% fee taken off, then automatically released BUT IndieGogo provides customers with a Flexible Funding option, where they still get their funds raised even if the project does NOT meet the goal - they simply charge a higher (9%) admin commission fee, but if the project creator only raises let's say $5000 of the $6000, they still get it.

    It appears with your script that if only $5000 was raised, all pre-approval payments are canceled, donors get their charge returned and the project creator gets nothing.

    We would really like to be able to offer more the style of IndieGogo and allow creators to have the $5k of their $6k, rather than nothing.

    Is there an option for this flexible funding style or is the script limited to "all or nothing, too bad so sad" if they don't meet their goal?

    Nish

    Yes..commission works automatically. You can setup your business model from admin like IndieGogo.  You can setup pre-approval parts from admin. You can setup for your business model whether project creator will received fund if project goal reached or not. there is one drop down box for this ..Yes or No.

    I am considering purchasing gofundmeclone, but I am still confused about source code. The FAQ item #3 says: "Script is Encrypted on Controller and Model." I don't understand what that means, can you please explain?

    You also said that I can use any payment gateway. How easy is it to add a gateway? Is programming required to do this? I use Netbilling for my payment gateway, and have coded the interface on my stores in PERL, so I can probably do the same in PHP if this is required.

    Thanks

    On request , We will provide open controllers files. You can add own custom payment gateway. Yes. You must required programming knowledge to add own payment gateway.  You need php API information to work with our system. 4 full day work for 5 yrs + programmer in Codeigniter.

    I'm afraid that I still don't understand. Please define the terms "Controller" and "Model". I don't know what you mean by these words.

  • Avatar
    Nish

    I think you are not programmer. Please read all about controller and Model here : http://codeigniter.com/ it is part of MVC structure programming.If you have still concern then contact to local programmer and try to understand this.

    Hey Nish,
    I want to buy your fundraising script but i have a few queries before i dish out  my cc, mainly because i am a CI developer myself.
    Anyhow please answer these queries:

    1. I can use my own design if i understand correctly. 
    2. i can remove the fundraising script branding in the basic package.

    3. i want a different form for the start project wizard. Different layout and different fields. I am not sure how to do this if you encrypt the model and controller. i would appreciate any suggestions on how to do it.
    4.  i want to offer my customers 3 modes of funding: a- fixed funding, terms similar to kickstarter.com,b-flexible funding, terms similar to indiegogo, and 1 other custom package that i design myself. I dont see any provision for different types of funding on your demo site. please let me know if these features are built in the app or need to be added.
    5. i want to know if you can provide me with decrypted/open model and controller files if i want to tweak the product to my needs.

    Thanks
