Let's move on to what's new on Gamefound!
Stretch Pay expands to pledge manager and late pledge
Stretch Pay proved to be an extremely successful feature. The popularity of paying in installments is growing; now, the feature is responsible for ca. 30% of pledges. To make Stretch Pay even better, you can set it up yourself in project options. Enabling installments is now easier and available to every creator. What's even more important, you can allow them in late pledge and pledge manager as well! You just need to define the number of installments, the minimal amount to enable them for backers, and a payoff deadline. Details are available here.
PayPal – new payment method
Another payment method has been added to checkout. For now, this payment option is in the beta phase and will be available only in selected projects. PayPal is available for backers pledging in EUR in the late pledge stage and in the pledge manager. PayPal can be used to pay only in EUR (but you can use our currency conversion; make sure to check any additional fees with your bank first).
As a creator, you don't need to set up anything. PayPal is handled by Adyen, so there will be no changes in payouts. If you'd like to turn on PayPal for your project, contact your Key Account Manager.
New pledge status – ready for shipping
Some of you wanted to have the option to allow backers to add new items to pledges after entering shipping details. In the past, backers couldn’t add new items in the “preparing for shipping” stage, but now you can let them add new products to their pledges. They still won’t be able to change the shipping address. In the Order settings, you can turn on the option to allow backers to add items to their pledges in the “Preparing for shipping” stage.
We’ve added a new status for your pledges that appears after “preparing for shipping.” The new stage – “ready for shipping” means backers can make no changes to the pledge. This status means the pledge is packed and ready to be shipped to the backer.
Comment management for creators (soon)
We know dealing with comments one by one is time-consuming, so we made a tool to make it faster and easier for you. Any day now, you will have the option to preview ALL comments from all your projects in one place (yes, updates, too!), track where they were added, or reply to them quickly.
You can use various filters to find comments. You can also filter comments by language, thanks to our AI. If you think we should add more options, let us know below.
Gamefound Feast is always exciting for us, especially with such great titles! And we’ve got a few more features and tools up our sleeves to show you soon. September is going to be full of them! Let us know what you think about the newest ones and what else you’d like to see on Gamefound.
