How does BackerKit crowdfunding work?
Crowdfunding is a collaborative way to bring ideas and projects to life. Project creators post their idea for a project, and backers pledge money to make the project possible. Backers get behind the scenes access and backer-only rewards, which can include exclusive products, special pricing, creative input, content, and more.
To become a backer, select a pledge level that features the reward(s) you would like to receive when the project is successfully completed and make your contribution.
All-or-nothing crowdfunding model: The creator sets a funding goal and a deadline to raise funds. If the project does not meet the goal by the deadline, backers credit cards are not charged and no money changes hands.
Crowdfunding projects can happen at various stages of the creative process. Make sure to check the estimated timeline of when rewards will be delivered. Project creators will keep you updated on the progress toward completion and delivery of your rewards.
Backing a crowdfunding campaign is not the same as purchasing an item from a store. When you back a campaign you are supporting the creation of something new. Rewards are almost always delivered, but are not guaranteed.
Can I add add-ons in BackerKit?
Want to add add-ons now? Great! You can increase the amount of your pledge by the amount of the add-ons you wish to add in the pledge confirmation screen if you want to account for the funds now, or you can wait to add them and be charged later in the pledge manager after the campaign is over.
When will I be charged for my pledge?
Your payment method will not be charged right away. You will be charged for the amount of your pledge when the campaign ends and the project reaches its funding goal. You will not be charged if the campaign does not reach its funding goal.
What happens after the campaign is over?
The Creator will send out a survey that will ask you for more information about your pledge, your shipping information, additional items you may want to add to your pledge, and collect shipping fees if applicable.
The survey will be sent to the email address we have on file with your pledge.
Any additional payment will be charged when you complete your survey and confirm your order.
What are these made of?
These are clear acrylic stands with double sided artwork. The effect is a great stand up terrain feature which can carry highly detailed artwork. The material is solid, sturdy, hard wearing and durable. The clear base blends into the backdrop, leaving the artwork to shine!
Are the maps exclusive?
The maps will be all new designs. They will be fold out and laminated, so they can be lined up to create larger areas and are wipe clean thus wet/dry marker compatible. And finally the maps will be exclusive to this campaign, they will never be available in the shops!
In a UK or EU Backer. Do I have to pay customs duty and VAT?
VAT yes - this will be charged at the local rate in the pledge manager after the campaign has ended, Customs duty no - we will use warehouses in the UK and Germany to send out the packages so there will be no duty to pay.
Can I use these with my existing set up?
Yes. These are the same scale as a 5E tactical battle map (which is also the same scale map used by most fantasy RPGs) so will sit perfectly on any map, tile or book. The will also be the same scale as many existing accessories, thus fitting right into your GM kit!
When do I receive this?
We aim to have this in your hands before September 2023. We will update this campaign on a regular basis so you will always be up to date with our progress. And I am pleased to say we have delivered, successfully, many crowdfunding campaigns, and we are on time with our fulfilment, and occasionally early!
