With add-on perks, campaigners can add perks on to their existing publicly available perks. Backers will see add-on perks when they go through the checkout process. During the checkout process, backers can check out multiple ways: they can select one or more additional add-on perks or can check out without adding any add-on perks. Backers may continue checking out without adding any add-on perks, select one additional add-on perk, or select multiple add-on perks.
To learn more about how to use add-on perks in your campaign strategy, please refer to this article.
Please note that if a backer would like to refund solely their add-on perk, then the backer would need to refund their entire contribution (including the main perk).
How to Create an Add-on Perk
- To create an add-on perk, visit the Perks tab, select the Create New Perk button, and select the Add-on Perk option. You will have to create a standard perk first before you can create an add-on perk.
- Create the add-on perk by filling out the required and/or optional fields, similar to the process for creating a standard perk. If your add-on perk requires additional shipping, please ensure that the shipping countries match the ones already included in your standard or secret perks. You may also choose worldwide shipping.
Add-on perks will appear on the payments page in the order of most claimed to least claimed.
- To link the add-on perk to a standard perk, select the three dot drop down menu next to the standard perk and then select Set up Add-ons.
If multiple standard perks are going to have the same add-on perks, you can check the boxes on the left-hand side of your perk title and then select Set up Add-ons from the Bulk Actions drop down menu.
After selecting the Bulk Actions drop down menu, the list of add-on perks will appear. You will then be able to check off the add-on perks that apply to your selected standard perk.
Add-on perks will be displayed for your backers at checkout regardless of their payment method, including direct credit/debit cards, Apple Pay, and Google Pay.
