HOW TO: Kickstarter Add On Tutorial
Thank you to everyone who is supporting the Niobe Kickstarter. It’s because of all of you that we are well on our way to a successful campaign. If you haven’t seen it, you can find it HERE.
Many backers have contacted us asking how they can add on additional items because no pledge level has the combination of all the items that they want. To make things as easy as possible, we’ve decided to put together a little tutorial on how to do that.
There is an ADD ON menu on the Kickstarter page under the CAMPAIGN tab. If you scroll down past the PREVIEWS and REWARDS, you’ll see it. Anything from that menu (which I’ll also copy at the bottom of this page) can be added to an existing pledge simply by increasing the amount of your pledge by the cost of what you want to add on. After the campaign, you will be asked to fill out a survey so we have your correct address and all of that. Let’s say you picked the $250 pledge level to get a piece of original art and then picked $100 worth of add ons. When you fill out the survey, the website will give you a prompt. It’ll say that you have an extra $100 to allocate, and it will ask you what you wanted to spend it on. It will present you with the add on menu, and you simply select the items you were adding on to total $100.
But how do you actually add on the extra money?
So here’s your pledge that you’ve already done. You should see this at the top of your screen. Click “Manage your pledge”.
It’ll take you to the level you pledged showing your rewards and pledge amount. Click “Change your pledge.”
You’ll now see a screen with all the pledge levels and you can select a different reward level from this page if you want. Since we’re doing an add on though, I’ve isolated the pledge level you want in the screen cap below.
Keeping the reward you want selected, simply type into the “PLEDGE AMOUNT” window the total pledge with your add ons. So your reward is $260 with shipping and let’s say you want to add on the Bronze Choker ($50), the Untamed Hardcover so you can see where it all began ($30), and the Kickstarter Exclusive Jae Lee Lithograph ($20), you simply add $100 to the pledge amount, like the screen cap below, and then hit continue.
And you’re set. Again, after the campaign, Kickstarter will tell you that you have an extra $100 to “spend” on the ADD ON menu, and you can select everything you want at that time. If you made a mistake and the add ons that you wanted are more than what you pledged, you can still select them from the menu and Kickstarter will charge you the difference. One way or another, we’ll get you everything that you want!
As promised here is the ADD ON menu which you can also see on the campaign page. It includes several new options added in today at the request of some of our backers.
