A developer has created a 0.5 release (not yet a 1.0 version) of a Crowd Funding plugin for blogs and websites running Wordpress.
Greg Priday, who develops themes and plugins for WordPress, has made a "Crowd Funding" plugin available to the general community. Features include tight integration with PayPal's adaptive payments API. Benefits include raising money for your dream project without sending all your visitors to Kickstarter or some other 3rd party crowd funding platform. Why not raise the cash on your own website?
I love the idea of an open-source WordPress crowd-funding plugin. As the founder of Chicago WordPress Meetup Group, I know members in my group will love a free plugin that will help them raise money. Thanks Greg!
