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.
Will there be more designs to choose from?
Potential stretch designs can be found in the story section, depending on how the campaign goes I may add in new designs.
Choosing sizes guide
When choosing the right bag size based on your tablets etc please note that screen size is not the same as the product dimensions. A 12.9” iPad Pro isn’t actually 12.9” in length, the screen is measured diagonally, and the actual dimensions are 11x8”, this applies to most tablets. So be sure to look at actual dimensions and maybe even measure them out before pledging!
What are the bags made of?
Super soft velvet plush polyester material
Bag size and weight
The bag sleeve sizes are listed on the story product details section, since they are soft material, there is some what a wiggle room for space. As for weight and endurance, for the largest size, I have logged around a pretty heavy 14” laptop, and so far the bag has held up. Switch console and iPad Pros should be just fine as well, but seeing as these bags aren’t intended for heavy duty, and also even though the shoulder straps are padded, it may be best not too put too many items to overstress the bag and yourself.
Remember that shipping fees are not included in the pledges at this time and will be calculated later after the campaign This product ships from Canada worldwide
