There is no minimum or maximum length for Shopnowtofund™ campaigns. This gives you flexibility when creating and managing your campaign. If you wish to extend your campaign’s timeframe for more than a month, you can contact one of our representatives and get that done.

Shopnowtofund™ campaigns are U.S. based only.  International campaigns will be coming soon.

You will be able to track your campaign, see how much you have collected so far, and how much you have left to raise. In addition, you will can see if it possible to extend your campaign and therefore raise even more money.

Some questions that you need to answer in order for your supporters to understand your cause are: 

  1. Who are you?
  2. What are you planning to make?
  3. Where did your project come from?
  4. What’s your budget?
  5. Why do you care?

An important recommendation is to use images, videos and other creative content to showcase your cause.

The best way to raise support for your campaign is to prepare an outreach plan beforehand and target your personal network. From sharing it on Facebook to sending a few tweets (or ads), it is important to cover as many mediums as possible. An email newsletter can also be handy for the closest (potential) backers in the beginning.

Funds must be withdrawn within 30 days of campaign completion.  In the event that campaign owners want to withdraw money instead of purchasing products, an 8% platform fee will be assessed. No platform fee will be assessed on purchases made from funds raised through the platform.

 

For all campaigns that raise $600 or more, additional documents will be required for tax purposes as required the law.

 

After 30 days if the funds are not withdrawn, the funds will automatically be converted into SNTF credit that can be used in the SNTF marketplace.

All businesses and individuals are required to report amounts received from third party organizations on a 1099-MISC form.  Shopnowtofund™ will send via email or mail a 1099-MISC form to those that have had contributions that exceeded $600 or more in gross funds raised in the one calendar year. The 1099-MISC is an informational form that summarizes the activity of your account.


Shopnowtofund™ will send you a link to complete a W-9. A W-9 form is for US based campaign owners. We will ask you to complete a W-9 form with your name, address and tax identification number (TIN) before sending out a 1099-MISC form.

General Question

How can I start an online campaign?

Starting a campaign is as easy as 1-2-3! After signing up, simply create your fundraiser page, preview your page to ensure everything is in order, publish and then share your campaign with your group/team members and supporters!

BUT…...Because this is our Phase 1 launch, we are not open to the public yet! We are only working with a handpicked selection of foundations to help raise funds.

Are there any fees to get started?

No, this platform is completely free to get started! We will automatically deduct a processing and handling fee of 3.9% from the total amount raised at the end of the campaign to cover transaction fees.

When can I start my online campaign?

You can start an online fundraiser at any time by simply signing up. But since it is close to the public to start a campaign, you will only have access as a supporter/participant to the dashboard

Is there a specific length of time that my campaign should last?
