Does it cost anything to create a campaign?
It doesn't cost anything to create a campaign. We use a fee-based system based on the type of campaign you are running. Standard campaigns have an 8% fee, but you receive your donations right away. All-or-nothing campaigns have a 5% fee and you receive your donations once you reach your goal.
Can you explain the difference between the two types of campaigns in more detail?
Sure. Depending on your idea it might be important to make sure that you reach your goal or your idea is not feasible. In that case you might want to start an all-or-nothing campaign. If you do not reach your goal you will not receive the donated funds. They will all be refunded to the funders and DonatePages will not charge a fee. Only if you have reached your goal or more and the campaign has ended will you receive the donated funds. All-or-nothing campaigns can not run for longer than 85 days. In other cases you know you will make your idea happen no matter what and you are just looking for help from others. In that case you can run a standard campaign. Any donations will be sent to you right away, minus the 8% fee. If you have not reached your goal you still have the donated funds minus the 8% fee. Standard campaigns can not run longer than 180 days.
