New Crowdfunding Theme For WordPress, Reward Points Purchasing Add-on

Our group buying software platform continues to expand with today's announcement of our white label Crowdfunding Theme for WordPress. We've integrated some of the best features of the GBS platform into this new WordPress fundraising theme. This includes the ability to set a tipping point required to activate a crowdfunding project. This unique feature allows people to join together to group-fund things like trips, gifts, and other group based fundraising projects. If a group-funded project doesn't meet the minimum goal, no one is charged. We've also integrated traditional group buying purchase limits (e.g. maximum contribution per user, maximum total, etc.). Just like traditional crowdfunding sites, you can create multiple contribution levels, allow sponsors to post updates to a fundraising project, and permit contributors/backers to post comments. In addition, we've also added a sponsor directory where visitors can view and filter sponsors by category. Checkout the video above for a quick overview and review the complete details at CrowdFundingSite.net.

Gamification Integrated Via Reward Points Checkout, Rewards System Add-on

gamification Gamification refers to the integration of game techniques into non-game applications in an effort to improve user engagement. When it's implemented correctly into one's site it can boost customer loyalty and instill a sense of entertainment or fun for the customer. Overall this may act to increase visitor traffic, result in more product sales, and ultimately generate more revenue for the website owner. These are terrific benefits for anyone running their own online business and it's precisely why we've chosen to implement gamification techniques into GBS.

Prime is a responsive group buying theme for WordPress that conforms to multiple device sizes including the popular iPad, iPhones and Android phones.
