In this post we present a compilation of very useful crowdfunding WordPress themes and plugins. A crowdfunding website can be quite demanding to build if you want to have crowd financing features and be able to control the process from A to Z. This is where CMS platforms like WordPress can become a real time saver.
Crowdfunding has become tremendously popular as a means of collecting money through the web because of its wide reach, to support all kinds of activities and projects by both organizations and individuals. Crowdfunding is not a new phenomenon, as this way of micro financing has been used for several hundred years. It is a way of giving or lending money to individuals, organisations or start-ups with low income and no opportunities for getting a loan. Crowdfunding can be used for supporting scientific research, free software development, civic projects, inventions, disaster relief, political campaigns and so on.
If you want to start a crowdfunding community site similar to Kickstarter.com or Indiegogo you will need a strong platform. To give you a good idea of the possibilities I have decided to showcase more than 15 crowdfunding WordPress themes and plugins.
These themes and plugins will help provide a great solution for building a professional crowd funding website based on WordPress. WordPress is an open source platform and the themes and plugins you will need are inexpensive and easy to work with. You should of course look for features that will make you website attractive and user-friendly, but also aim for a flexible theme with plenty of customization options and good support.
