What is Indiegogo?
Indiegogo is a Crowdfunding platform where people around the world can raise funds for the things that matter to them, and in turn allows backers to help fund ideas they'd like to see come to life.
People all over the world use Indiegogo to raise money for all types of campaigns. Indiegogo was founded in 2008 as a global funding platform to help anybody, anywhere, raise money for anything. We provide a technology based platform that enables anybody with an idea (creative, cause related, or entrepreneurial) to create a funding campaign, offer perks to their contributors, and ultimately get their idea funded.
How Do Credit Card Charges Appear?
Transactions made to campaigns on Indiegogo will appear as being charged by 'Indiegogo' (sometimes listed as 'Stripe' depending on your credit card company). The charge does not list the name of the campaign or the campaign owner.
If the campaigner has added a custom billing statement description to their campaign, you'll see that appear on your statement. You should also see it on the Thank You page after backing the campaign.
How Do I Locate Information About the Charge?
There are two ways you can do this:
- Indiegogo sends contribution confirmation emails to the email address used to make the contribution, for every successful contribution. Please check your inbox, on the date of the charge, for your contribution confirmation email.
