Anyone know anything about low-level friends-related crowdfunding
A friend of mine wants to raise a small amount of money from family/friends towards getting her husband a lovely gift. It's going to be a few thousand, and she doesn't expect the friends/family to pay for more than a percentage of it, and she's wondering if any of the usual crowdfunding sites are suitable for that.
Looking at Kickstarter/Indiegogo they both charge 5% + 3% for payment handling. Is there anything which might work better?
Are they suitable for "We're buying Bob a car, chip in if you feel like it!" types of things? Or is there a better alternative?
