Every Little Help...
BackThisExpat.com is a new crowdfunding platform that offers crowdfunding to expats who need help with the costs associated to their status in the country they chose to reside in.
Thanks to our website, they can solicit funds to help raise money whatever their needs, whatever their costs. Crowdfunding on our platform can help them because changing status means that they end up having to apply for different types of documents, for them and/or their family, in order to remain there legally.
BackThisExpat.com is all about allowing people to help other people. Simple!
How Does It Work?
After registering online (it’s free!), you can easily create a page for your funding campaign, make a list of “rewards” for different levels of funding (if you wish to, as this is optional) and publicise your project through your social media (Facebook, Twitter, etc.)
Contribution & Rewards
The website runs on a rewards-based system, which means that anyone willing to help to fund your cause can donate a set amount of money and receive a gift in exchange for their kind contribution, unless they choose to contribute without the reception of any reward.
The aim of the awards is to create a financial incentive for potential contributors. But it is up to you to decide whether you want to offer any rewards at all. This is optional.
Payment Processing Fees
Backers can use credit cards to donate, for which processing is conducted by Stripe and PayPal.
BackThisHub.com charges only 4% fee on contributions by Backers for successful campaigns. This charge is in addition to the 4% Stripe/PayPal payment processing charges.
In the case of a campaign failing to raise the target amount, Creators will be able to keep all money raised minus a 4% platform fee + 4% payment Stripe/PayPal payment processing charges. This option must be selected BEFORE the campaign begins, and the goal will thus be listed.
Funds are disbursed directly after Backers place their order of contribution on BackThisHUB.com when they pay by Credit/Debit Card or PayPal payment. In some cases, when fund clearance is required, it may take up to 96 hours after placing the order.
