Why Open Source Crowdfunding Platform?
If you want to start a crowdfunding platform, you will need a crowdfunding website(more technically crowdfunding software or application) with all modules in the front end and back end to support the crowdfunding business process and the whole cycle of crowdfunding.
You can acquire a crowdfunding website or software in three ways:
- Develop it yourself in-house: Re-inventing the cycle is not an easy task. It takes lots of time, cost and efforts. Also, you will need an in-house team of web developers and designers who can develop and maintain your crowdfunding platform. The benefit of going with this option is complete access to and ownership of your source code as well as a fully customized solution as per your needs.
- Download freely available crowdfunding open source solution: There are many crowdfunding WordPress based and other technology based open source or cost-effective solutions available using which you can start your crowdfunding platform with less or almost no money. However, you need to be tech-savvy or have a team of developers who can do all server and software configuration on top of customization for you as per your unique crowdfunding platform requirements.
- Buy white-label crowdfunding open source software: White label crowdfunding software solutions for sale are often cost-effective and efficient if you want to start your unique crowdfunding platform with your customization. These white-label crowdfunding software solution providers do offer not only ready-to-use crowdfunding solutions but also customization services. This is the best option because it requires zero knowledge of programming or web development, as everything will be taken care of by the vendor.

Open source crowdfunding platform software pricing models at Fundraisingscript.com are divided into mainly two divisions as mentioned below.
This is a SaaS-based cloud solution in which crowdfunding software is licensed on a subscription basis and is centrally hosted. You pay for one-time setup costs and monthly rent for your crowdfunding platform. Check our pricing to know more about our crowdfunding software SaaS solution.
Self Hosted Solution
The self-hosted solution is a business model where you buy and own the crowdfunding open source code and host it on your server. This is the model where you will also need to buy a web hosting server (from Godaddy, Hostgator, Bluehost, or AWS), as you will be managing and maintaining the server, data, and source code on your own. Check our pricing to know more about our self-hosted crowdfunding software solution.
As mentioned above SaaS model is subscription based software license where you pay monthly rent on a subscription basis with no direct or indirect access to source code. You will have access to only the front-end and back-end of crowdfunding software(similar to a Wix or a Squarespace website).
On the other hand, self-hosted is a software license model where you pay a one-time cost for purchasing open source crowdfunding platform, get access to full(100% open source) or partial source code, and host software on your server(similar to a self-hosted WordPress website). With this software license, you get one domain license without reselling rights.
