Great app. Dodgy creators

Thanks for an awesome app. Works really well to connect us sponsors to shifty deceitful creators like Lampster. Maybe check the messaging part of the app though. I have used it to send messages to the one and only lampster creators but I don’t think it’s working as they have not replied to my questions as to when I make get see my products. I’m sure it’s not because they are 3 years late with the lamp. I mean I have only given them over $800 AUS. Anyway great work. Good for you.

Nothing but a haven for scammers

The app is ok but Kickstarter has become nothing more than a scammers paradise. No accountability, no transparency, no real checking if projects are real. Due diligence isn’t easy as it once was, they are propping up fake projects, heavily promoting them, reaping huge fees and backers are left losing out. It used to be enjoyable to crowdfund projects, I’ve had numerous successful campaigns I’ve funded but those days are well and truly gone. As a superbacker I rarely back campaigns unless I’ve previously backed from a successful creator. I’m not willing to fully back first timers. It’s unfortunate for those creators who have legitimate first time campaigns as many, many backers are pulling out of this platform now due to rampant scamming behaviour. Kickstarter you need to lift your game and stop being greedy.

Abandons Backers

Kickstarter does nothing to support or protect backers, read terms and conditions carefully and don’t be fooled... t&c have been updated. Too many scams and no consequences.

Sadly I stopped backing after to many scams, that were heavily pushed by Kickstarter “projects we love”, or show up on fb as adds etc. I backed 35 projects in short time/ but now I won’t back any more too many scams and due to lack of any support/ countability on Kickstarter’s behave and then changing t&c to give even less after they got lots of complaints. Why is it other companies can build in a safety net to protect their clients. Kickstarter got their cut of the money and don’t care about anything else.

App is ok, slow and losses where you are up to when scrolling.
