Reviews

100% SCAM!

DO NOT BUY THIS PLUGIN!
NOT TO BE TRUSTED!
THEY ARE RUNNING A SCAM!

The Plans and Pricing table for Enterprise and Essential features was not clear. When I reviewed the features columns, they were not activated with check marks to see which features came with what version. The only difference I could tell between the Enterprise and Essential was that Enterprise was for 3 domains. After I purchased the $49 Essential and found out that it didn’t come with the Paypal adaptive and Stripe Connect features that I needed, I asked for a refund and they refused. Had I know I would that those features didn’t come with the $49 version, I would have certainly paid the $89. They could have offered a credit for the difference. Now when I visit the Plans & Pricing grid the columns are checked!

They are running a SCAM and refuse to refund $49 for the plug-in I purchased!

Nice plugin, awesome support

It’s nice plugin and has a awesome support, but for me needs some features to be 5 stars.

I have still not tested the pro version but possible I will buy in few days, but for the moment I can not opinate about the extra options this plugin offers.

In general is a good plugin and it does what is explained, there are not a lot of crowdfunding plugins options in the market and I think this compliant with crowdfunding site needs. The support staff is fast and they assist you in many things I think this is one strong features the plugin has.

The features the plugin needs for me to be 5 stars are the following:

– Should be more documentation (snippets, etc…) without the necessity of look for solutions in the forum topics all time.

– If you want to modify the files of the plugin you have to override the original version of the files, so if there is an update you have to upload again your modified files.

– If you have incorrect data or leave in blank data in the textareas of the login forms plugin provide, you have to code not redirect to /wp-login/

-If you have incorrect data or leave in blank data in the textareas of the registration form the page redirect to /undefined/ I think they will fix this error soon but I had to code my own registration form

– Lost password finally redirect to woocommerce profile page and not to wp-crowdfunding profile page

-Order numbers of payments are linked to woocommerce and not to wp-crowdfunding

– CSS mobile friendly: you have to code a lot of things to have the site mobile friendly (canvas cropped, font-size: 16px in textareas, select menus, datepickers, table, etc… )

– Confusion with edit profile and upload profile image because if you upload image but first don’t press edit button that is located in the bottom of the page, the profile image uploaded it’s not added.

– not possible to delete profile image from frontend, only change the image but the old one is still stored in media.

– Should be included register users with social networks

I hope they could add some of this features in future. Of course you can solve all of them programming, but would be better has this features to not waste time coding this.

Gets the job done. Somehow.

Set ups easy and sort of works. The support is responsive and tries to help out with basic things. For very basic crowdfunding would most likely be fine, but still leaves a bit too much desired to handle an intensive campaign:

– The system (backend) doesn’t distinguish well between the rewards of the same price. In the order summary you just get the ammount and not the name of the reward.
– You have to put in the rewards in the system in a precise order, from the least expensive to the most expensive, otherwise the system shows them wrong.
– When somebody orders a reward and doesn’t pay right away throu PayPal or other direct option, it still shows the reward in the system as active, which can get tricky if you have rewards very limited in number. This way, few people can order the same thing, which leads to confusion.

Still, with a bit of tweaking and when you acceptg some of the strange behaviour, it can get the job done.

Needs 2 features and cleaner CSS

It’s quite good overall. Nice customization options (through code).

+1 star if they added:
• option for individual donors to be anonymous.
• “No gift for me” option for donors.

+1 star if they fixed some sloppy CSS that is difficult to override.

DISHONEST COMPANY – DECEPTIVE ADVERTISING

WARNING! THEMEUM IS DECEPTIVE AND DISHONEST. I was honestly shocked. Their “Customer-Friendly 100% Money Back Guarantee” is literally a complete lie — they refuse even a completely reasonable, polite refund request (1 week from purchase, product never touched.) Support was extremely slow, sloppy, unclear, unfriendly. I have done business with dozens of WordPress companies in the past 10 years and this is absolutely the grossest, worst abuse of the trust of customers I have ever seen. They should be ashamed of themselves.

I have been known in the WordPress community for over 10 years; feel free to contact me if you doubt anything about this review.

Look at the other reviews here — many seem to be fake reviews from friends of the company.

Don’t be fooled as I was! You can produce a crowdfunding site using other software. IgnitionDeck isn’t perfect either, but at least they are well-established, offer decent support and don’t rip off their own customers.
