Using crowdfunding to raise money on your Bio Site

Add a crowdfunding section to your Bio Site so fans can support you and help you reach your goals.

Contributing toward a specific goal makes giving feel more meaningful for your fans.

Crowdfunding works by connecting your Bio Site to your Stripe account, then adding a section to your Bio Site for each goal you create.

Add a crowdfunding section

Before you begin

To add crowdfunding to your Bio Site, you’ll need a Stripe account. You should also verify you're eligible to use Stripe.

You may be prompted to connect your Stripe account to your Bio Site the first time you add a crowdfunding section to your Bio Site. If you’ve already connected Stripe to your Bio Site, such as by connecting Stripe to a Tips section, you won’t encounter this prompt.

Add a crowdfunding section

To add a crowdfunding section to your Bio Site:

  1. While editing your Bio Site, tap Sections.
  2. In the Payment field, select Stripe.
  3. Add a title, and (optional) an image.
  4. (Optional) Update the wording of the Donate button to something else.
  5. Set your goal, and add suggested donations in the Amounts section. Fans can donate one of these preset amounts, or choose a custom amount.
  6. Tap Done.

Optimize your Stripe settings

We recommend optimizing your Stripe account settings to improve your experience and your fans experience:

How fans donate

When fans visit your Bio Site, they’ll be shown the goal you’ve created, how close you are to reaching your goal, how many people have already donated, and a button to donate.

When they tap Donate, they can choose one of your preset amounts, or tap Custom to donate a custom amount, then tap Continue to reach the Stripe checkout screen and complete their donation.

Review your donations

You can review incoming donations by navigating to the Bio Sites Payments tab. From the app home screen, tap Bio Site, then tap Payments.

When you reach a goal

When you reach or pass a crowdfunding goal, Unfold will notify you to update or remove the goal. You can tap Update to raise the goal amount or Remove to delete the goal. You can always add another crowdfunding section to your Bio Site.
