Product Description

When enabled Crowdfunding for WooCommerce plugin adds full crowdfunding support to WooCommerce. When adding or editing a product, you will have the possibility to set for each product individually:

  • Goal (i.e. pledged) amount.
  • Start and end dates.
  • Custom “Back This Project” (i.e. “Add to Cart”) button labels.
  • Enable and customize “Open Pricing” (i.e. “Name Your Price”) functionality.

Also you will be able to:

  • Add a form, so your customers/users could add their custom campaigns directly from frontend.
  • Set custom HTML to show when project not yet started and/or ended.
  • Modify and choose where to display crowdfunding info, that is: goal remaining, time remaining, already pledged etc.
  • Choose when and if to end the campaign (goal reached, time ended).
  • Choose which order statuses to count in pledged calculations.
  • Style progress bars for time remaining, already pledged etc.


Plugin consists of two type of settings: global (i.e. for all products globally) and local (i.e. per product).

Global settings can be set in Admin Dashboard > WooCommerce > Settings > Crowdfunding tab.

In General settings section you can:

  • Enable/disable the plugin.
  • Set orders status to include in crowdfunding calculations.
  • Set default add to cart button labels (for single product and archive pages).
  • Set default HTML templates to display on product not yet started or ended.
  • Enable radio buttons for variable products (instead of WooCommerce standard drop down list).
  • Set campaigns ending options (end on time ended and/or goal reached).
  • Set products data update rate.


In Product Info settings section you can set how and where to display product’s crowdfunding data, e.g. number of backers, pledged amount, time remaining etc. You can set different data to display for product category or single views. On single product’s page you can also display crowdfunding data in WooCommerce tab.

Crowdfunding for WooCommerce - Admin Backend - Settings - Product Info

In Open Pricing (Name Your Price) settings section you can set frontend labels and messages: frontend label, message on empty price, message on price too small and too big. Other open pricing options are set in each product’s edit page.

In User Campaigns settings section you can set options for [product_crowdfunding_add_new_campaign] shortcode.

Local (i.e. per product) settings can be reached when adding or editing WooCommerce product from admin dashboard.

Crowdfunding for WooCommerce - Admin - Edit Product

Plugin works exactly the same as free Crowdfunding for WooCommerce plugin, except there is no limitation on how many crowdfunding products you can add.

Product Frontend Example

Crowdfunding for WooCommerce - Product Frontend


When displaying crowdfunding data for the product, you should use plugins shortcodes:

Backers & Money

  • product_crowdfunding_total_sum – total sum (i.e. funded to date) for current product (formatted as price).
  • product_crowdfunding_total_backers – total number of orders (i.e. backers) for current product.
  • product_crowdfunding_total_items – total number of ordered items for current product.
  • product_crowdfunding_goal – end goal for current product (formatted as price).
  • product_crowdfunding_goal_remaining – sum remaining to reach the end goal for current product (formatted as price).
  • product_crowdfunding_goal_remaining_progress_bar – goal remaining as graphical progress bar.
  • product_crowdfunding_goal_backers – end goal (backers) for current product.
  • product_crowdfunding_goal_backers_remaining – backers remaining to reach the end goal for current product.
  • product_crowdfunding_goal_backers_remaining_progress_bar – goal (backers) remaining as graphical progress bar.
  • product_crowdfunding_goal_items – end goal (items) for current product.
  • product_crowdfunding_goal_items_remaining – items remaining to reach the end goal for current product.
  • product_crowdfunding_goal_items_remaining_progress_bar – goal (items) remaining as graphical progress bar.


  • product_crowdfunding_startdate – starting date for current product.
  • product_crowdfunding_starttime – starting time for current product.
  • product_crowdfunding_startdatetime – starting date and time for current product.
  • product_crowdfunding_deadline – ending date for current product.
  • product_crowdfunding_deadline_time – ending time for current product.
  • product_crowdfunding_deadline_datetime – ending date and time for current product.
  • product_crowdfunding_time_to_start – time remaining till start.
  • product_crowdfunding_time_remaining – time remaining till deadline.
  • product_crowdfunding_time_remaining_progress_bar – time remaining as graphical progress bar.


  • product_crowdfunding_add_new_campaign – campaigns by users.
  • product_crowdfunding_add_to_cart_form – backers (add to cart) HTML form.

You can style the progress bar by adding type attribute (standard, circle, line) to the progress bar shortcodes. E.g.:

[product_crowdfunding_time_remaining_progress_bar type="circle" color="red" text_color="black"]

    Love the idea and functionality, but….. it breaks my multisite wordpress install!!!
    After activating the plugin, the product page’s ( ) give’s a “oops, page not found error”….

    I hope a future update will help, because I’m really interested!

    • :


      sorry to hear that, we are working on multi-site functionality. Let you know when it will be available.


    • :


      We’ve finally added multisite support (since plugin’s version 2.2.2).

      Best regards,

    will this app allow for users to create their own campaign on the front end?

    • :


      sorry, not possible at the moment. We will add this feature to our to-do list.


    • :


      Since plugin’s version 2.3.0 we’ve added the possibility for your users to create new campaigns directly from frontend. To do that you need to add [product_crowdfunding_add_new_campaign] shortcode somewhere on your site (e.g. create a new page for that). There is also additional options in WooCommerce > Settings > Crowdfunding > User Campaigns.

      Please let me know if you have any questions.

    Thanks Guys! Very simple, cheap and functional plugin. Save me some money and time!

    hey Val,

    Can I pay you to customise the plugin for me?
    I have a design crowd funding project that measures success by units sold rather than money raised.
    The project is more of a pre-order plugin (subject to min order being met) and needs a customised front end submission form
    for project designers.

    my email is

      we will create a ticket on our help desk, get back to you ASAP.

    Great plugin!

    I have the pro version and also have the ‘Catalog Visibility Options’ extension.
    For normal products, this extension works ok, but it does not work with the crowdfunding plugin i.e the ‘Add To Cart’ button and other info is still visible for not logged in users.

    Are there any filters to put in place for this or is there a fix for this, please?

    I have also posted this on the support thread on the WP site and sent emails, but I have some urgency to resolve this quickly.
    Your early response is greatly appreciated.

    Any possibility on changing colour of progress bar and having percentage instead of number of days?

    • :

      Hi Erik,

      Regarding color – you can change color by adding custom CSS (please let me know if you don’t know how to do it and I will help), something like this:

      progress { 
       color: #ff0000; 
       font-size: .6em; 
       line-height: 1.5em; 
       text-indent: .5em; 
       width: 15em; 
       height: 1.8em; 
       border: 1px solid #ff0000; 
       background: #fff; 
      progress::-moz-progress-bar { background: #ff0000; }
      progress::-webkit-progress-bar { background: #fff; }
      progress::-webkit-progress-value { background: #ff0000; }

      You can read more on how to style the progress bar here – or even more customizations here –

      Regarding “percentage instead of number of days” – if I understood you correctly that is not possible at the moment, but it seems quite easy to add, so I will add new shortcode for this in next update (in a couple of weeks max). For now you could use product_crowdfunding_time_remaining_progress_bar shortcode to display progress bar instead of number of days.

      Best regards,

      Hi again,

      Since plugin’s version 2.3.0 we’ve added styling options to all progress bar shortcodes. Now you can change color by adding something like this:

      [product_crowdfunding_time_remaining_progress_bar type="line" color="red" text_color="black"]

      Please let me know if you have any questions.

      Best regards,

    Please advise how to set up variable options like shown in the image of Product Frontend Example.


  9. 4 out of 5



    Please advise how to add variable options like shown in the last image.


    • :


      Sorry for the delay. If you mean – display radio buttons – you need to go to General Crowdfunding settings (in WooCommerce > Settings > Crowdfunding > General), and enable the “Radio Buttons for Variable Products” checkbox in “Variable Add to Cart Form Options” section. After that all WooCommerce variable products will have radio buttons instead of standard drop down box. Hope I made it a little more clear – please let me know if you have any questions.

      Best regards,

    I can’t seem to get open pricing to work.
    After I tick the “Enable Open Pricing” box and save the product – the tick is gone again.
    Please advise how I can solve this.
    Thank you.

    I am unable to change the color of the progress bar by using the short code styling mentioned.
    [product_crowdfunding_time_remaining_progress_bar type=”line” color=”red” text_color=”black”]

    Check this out.

    Secondly I want to increase the length of the progress bar and wish not to have visible sections marked in the above bar.

    Help me out please.

    Let me know how can do more styling to the progress bar. I am unable to understand where to insert CSS code.

    Hey there!,

    The plugin looks great but I’m wondering, can you tell me the difference between the free and pro version? I don’t see any comparisson of features.

      Hi Ari,

      Plugin works exactly the same as free Crowdfunding for WooCommerce plugin, except there is no limitation on how many crowdfunding products you can add (in free version you can have max 3 crowdfunding products enabled at the same time).

      Please let me know if you have any more questions.
