I have funded many different campaigns. Almost always a rip off or bad product if your lucky enough to get anything. Indiegogo doesnt care as long as they got your money. Written to them many times. They always send the same standard answer with bullshit.

IndieGoGo makes it easy to post projects, plus you can receive funds immediately through PayPal or after the project ends by credit card -- or you can do a combination of both. But unless your project has "gogo factor" -- i.e. goes viral, it will get lost in a sea of competition. It's still better than Kickstarter -- at least you get the funds you raised, even if your project was totally unsuccessful.

IndieGoGo allows individuals and groups to post appeals for projects within a range of categories, much like Kickstarter. But IndieGoGo does not prescreen projects, and projects that are partially funded receive the money they've raised. But it can be difficult to gain traction with so many projects competing with one another.
