A guide to Indiegogo


This is a step-by-step guide to make an anonymous pledge on my Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign.

You don’t have to register on Indiegogo to support my campaign, and payments are by PayPal.

There are more book rewards on my Kickstarter campaign. I have written a guide to Kickstarter too.

Pledges and perks

A pledge is an amount of money that a backer commits to pay the campaign. The money is only taken if the total pledges reaches or exceeds the campaign goal by the end of the campaign.

A perk is something tangible on offer to backers of a campaign. Think of it as a pre-order. There is a minimum pledge amount for each perk (to cover costs). However, you are free to pledge a higher amount for a given perk.

You can pledge money without selecting a perk if you just want to support the campaign.
