“Fundify” is the first of its kind! A Crowd Funding Theme for WordPress. It’s a WordPress App Theme that seamlessly integrates with Easy Digital Downloads (a free eCommerce plugin for WordPress) and allows you to create a crowd funding website in the likes of Kickstarter or Indigogo. Easily crowd source everything from films, games, music to art, design, technology, or anything you can imagine.
Campaign “Backers” can pledge specified amounts of money towards a project and receive rewards for their contributions. Using the PayPal Adaptive Payments extension, pledge amounts are only collected if a campaign reaches its goal in the time specified, and pledges can be split with the campaign author as well as the site administrator. Campaign backers are listed so you can see who all is involved, and comments allow for interaction between authors and backers.
We’ve added a front-end submission form for people to submit new campaigns to your website, making it super easy to add new campaigns. They can set a goal amount, the length of the campaign, and if they have a video that can be added to the campaign page as well as images. Campaigns are set to “pending” for a site administrator to review and publish.
Some of the features that we’ve included with the theme are, a “responsive design” This means when you view Fundify on a desktop computer, tablet, or mobile device, it will always look amazing.
Alongside the amazing custom plugin integration, the theme can be used as a standard WordPress blog. We’ve added a number of features such as template pages that include a contact page template so it has the same design as the rest of your site, a full-width template, archive template and much more. Easily customize the look of your website with the WordPress customizer.

Features That Matter
In addition to being a solid WordPress theme with standard blogging functionality, we have integrated ourcustom Easy Digital Downloads extension to make creating crowd funding campaigns as easy as possible.
Create campaigns with the clean and powerful interface provided by Easy Digital Downloads, or allow guests to submit their own projects via the included shortcode.
Integration with the PayPal Adaptive Payments extensions allows “Backers” to preapprove their pledge amounts. This is a “promise” that if the campaign reaches their set goal within the specified time, the pledged amount will be charged, and backers will receive their reward.
Fundify and the Crowdfunding plugin also work seamlessly with any other Easy Digital Downloads payment gateway. However, funds will be collected automatically when the amount is pledged.
Whether viewing on a widescreen monitor, or a smartphone, browsing, contributing, and interacting with the site is a painless experience. The theme’s responsive functionality keeps every page looking amazing.
