Placing large orders or purchase orders:
Large orders and purchase orders can be accommodated, but the payment must be submitted before the order can be added to the campaign page.
All pledge levels have to be public, so no hidden pledge levels for bulk orders. If you’re afraid of what consumers will think if they see wholesale pricing, you should change your pricing.
An “abandoned order” is one where the payment was rejected and never updated. For example, the backer used a credit card that expired before the campaign concluded but hasn’t responded to requests for an update. In the event of abandoned orders, we’ll take the following steps:
After this time period, failed payments will be marked as abandoned and not count toward the final crowdfunding total. If a campaign meets its goal with pledged amounts, but not enough of those pledges are collected to actually meet the goal, the campaign fails and we refund all money, or find other pledges to fill in the gap.
Pledges committed to backers as a result of a funding campaign cannot be returned, exchanged, or refunded via Crowd Supply. The product creator is responsible for providing a good faith estimate of the product description, risks, and timeline for their projects.
Due to the uncertainties inherent in creating new products, during the early stage of development changes may occur to features, performance, and/or appearance. Possible reasons for this include technology limitations, issues with availability of parts or materials, or other factors outside of your control. Timelines may slip, and in rare instances a project that was funded may not be completed and delivered. Backers should only pledge to a creator’s project if they are comfortable accepting this uncertainty. If a backer is dissatisfied with a premium they should contact the project creator to share their concerns.
For all items pre-ordered from Crowd Supply after the campaign concludes, customers can cancel their order for store credit at any time prior to product shipment. Refunds are at Crowd Supply’s discretion.
For all items purchased from the Crowd Supply Store, customers receive a 30-day satisfaction guarantee:
Should any item fail to meet your expectations, simply return the item in new condition and we will gladly exchange it, refund your purchase price with a store credit, or credit your credit card. If you’re not sure if a product is going to work for you, we ask that you please keep all packing materials for shipping should you decide to return it.
No return authorization number is necessary. Just ship your items back to us with a copy of your invoice or a printout of your confirmation email, and a note indicating how you’d like us to handle the return (cash, credit, or exchange). Please include your daytime phone number in case we have any questions.
We don’t collect domestic taxes or VAT because we are located in Oregon, which does not have a sales tax. Backers will be responsible for any import taxes applicable to their region.
Funds received from orders are considered income and will probably fall under the category of 1099 income. You should consult with a tax professional to help determine your liability and responsibility.
