Indiegogo Changes The Rules

Contributors to fixed crowdfunding campaigns on Indiegogo should be aware that the web portal will now charge your credit card immediately upon pledging “not at the end of the campaign. With this integration, backers’ payment information is secure and entrepreneurs know exactly how much money they’ll receive at the end of their campaign.”

Unlike Kickstarter, where a target has to be hit before your payment is processed, Indiegogo believes that this “advance” will help crowdfunders eliminate “leakage” where the cards are rejected at the end of a campaign. So, the target no longer matters as the campaign can keep whatever they raise.
