Crowdfunding websites KickStarter and Indiegogo have become really popular in recent years, with many projects from all areas being born through the funding obtaining from these websites.

What if you want to obtain funding for your own project? What are your options?

Apart from signing up with Kickstarter or Indiegogo, you also have the option to use WordPress plugins to host the crowdfunding process on your own site.

Here are the best plugins I’ve found for that.



IgnitionDeck is the most complete and well-rounded WordPress crowdfunding plugin, and it now also comes with a specially-tailored theme you can use for crowdfunding projects. It integrates with all your favourite services, as the MakerKit offers multiple extensions, payment gateways, and campaign tools.

  1. Another good solution is using Thrinacia. They have a Orion WordPress plugin that comes with a full website UI.

  2. Ignitiondeck is very good…buti f it does not turn multilingual-ready, soon it will stop being relevant and suitable for most global projects out there. Any news on this front that I might have missed? Thanks

  3. I have used two external crowdfunding sites this year and researched many others. Had I known about these plug-ins the chances are I would have used one of them and saved myself a lot of bother. Neither of the sites I’ve used met up with my expectations – or their claims – and few of the many, many others out there are really geared to individual needs, more to a business plan which works for the owners and not their customers.

    Perhaps, next time, I will look at hosting the campaign on my own site rather than farming it out to someone else and, perhaps, save a lot of the bother and the expense too.
