Pledge manager is live!
A pledge manager is a core element in every accessory campaign that we do, making it easy for our backers to select their coins. For the first time we are working with Gamefound who are a new platform with new ideas to bring to the table.
If you are a backer of our campaign, in this guide you will find the information on how to use the Gamefound easily to select your coins, combine pledges, add your address and order more coins.
If you are not a backer, you can still join the pledge manager as a late backer getting all the extras that were unlocked during the campaign.
Without further ado, allow us to delve deeper to the pledge manager itself.
The first think you see when entering your page through the invitation link is the opening page giving you a short intro.
On the image, at the top right you can see all the available credit that you have.
If you are already a backer you will have pre-selected the two freebies you get from our campaign: the Exclusive Season 4 Metal Coin & the Mystery Coin. Each costs 0.01 but we have already added the funds to your pledge.
From now on, you will need to select your pledge levels from the available options.
How to Use the Pledge Manager:
Everything is really simple. We will explore each different option below in this image-rich guide.
Selecting a Pledge Level
Allow us to demonstrate using as an example the 4-set pledge.
First thing I need to do is entering the pledge level, in this case I need to click on the title or the image of the “Select Four Sets” pledge.
In the pledge level you can see the product description, testimonials and more importantly, select the 4 different sets from the dropdown menu for each different option. We have included the image of each available set on the page to make it easy for you to select them.
After selecting the 4 sets, you can click on “Add to cart”. If you want the exact same pledge more than once, you can easily do so from there as well.
If you want to save some time you can select the pledge without even entering this menu. From the 2 options to select a pledge, you can select the Buy Now option (which will take you directly to the basket after picking your options) or using Add to Cart which will give you the option to continue browsing (Continue Shopping) or go to the basket (Check Out).
Custom sets are a little trickier to select since we want to offer all available options to you to get exactly the coins you want.
To select a Custom Set, you have to follow 2 steps:
1) Click on the Custom Set Pledge Level ($0.01). There you will select any single coin that you will get for free (the coin unlocked through the Stretch Goals).
2) Select any Single Coins below to add to your “Custom Set”. You can find them each with their own image and cost (Enamel RPG- Coins cost $2, everything else costs $1). If you want a particular coin more than once, it is easier to do so by clicking on it and then adding it to cart.
To make the procedure faster, we encourage you to click “Add to Cart” after choosing a coin instead of “Buy Now”.
Lots of backers asked us to combine pledges (getting sets and a custom set for example). To do so, you can simple add another pledge level to your basket from the Pledge Levels menu.
You can select extra sets, coins, pouches or metal bars as Add-Ons. You will find them on the respective sections of the pledge manager by either scrolling down or clicking on the Top Menu on the appropriate title.
Closing your pledge
At all times you will be able to check quickly what you have in your basket by clicking on the cart image on the top right. Whenever you are ready, you can click on the Check Out button that will take you to the cart.
In the cart you will be able to review the items you have selected, and the total weight in kilograms below.
If you want to change anything you can remove items directly from the cart or can simple head back to do so (by clicking on the View More button on the Legendary Metal Coins image on the top left).
If everything is ok, you will need to enter your address information below. When you select the country you will see the shipping cost (calculated by the kilograms of your order and the country that you want us to ship the coins at).
If everything is alright, simply select Continue.
This is the final page of the pledge manager, in which you will review your full order once more and will be asked to pay for shipping and any add-ons you selected through the process.
The final balance is calculated as follows:
Sub Total: The total cost of the pledges and add-ons you selected
Shipping Cost: The shipping cost of your order as calculated from the KGs of the order and your country
Credit Discount: The amount of funds you have already paid us through Kickstarter. This is reduced from the Sub Total and Shipping Cost Sum.
Total: The final amount that you still need to pay.
To complete payment, you will be asked to provide us your credit card. The payment will be done through Stripe (the same payment system that Kickstarter used to send us the money from the KS campaign).
After that, you submit your order and you simply wait for your unique metal coins set to arrive.
