Payment solutions for Crowdfunding

Crowdfunding, also known as micro-patronage, is a form of financing and investment through individual financial contributions. It is usually carried out by people who need help to promote their projects and, through the Internet, they have the possibility of explaining their intentions and convincing small patrons to donate. Depending on the type of crowfunding, it is possible that sponsors receive a counter-benefit in return.

Below we will review the types of crowfunding that exist and which crowdfunding platforms in Spain are the most successful. In addition, if you are planning to create your own crowfunding page or already have one and are having trouble managing donations, we recommend that you read through to the end.

Types of crowdfunding platforms

We could summarize the types of crowdfunding platforms in 4:

  • Rewarding: Platforms are usually generalist or linked to cultural projects. In exchange for the contribution, sponsors receive a reward in the form of products or services.
  • As a donation: They are linked to humanitarian and social projects. Investors do not receive compensation, as they are usually non-profit projects.
  • Loans: In return they offer interest on the money contributed. In this way, the recipient of the funding must return the money plus interest.
  • Investment: This is related to real estate crowfunding. In exchange for the money contributed, the sponsor becomes part of the company financed with a share or participation.
