Before starting the details about Crowd Funding App for Shopify, let’s first understand what does crowdfunding means. Crowdfunding is the concept of ‘money from many’ to complete a project.
A process of raising funds/money from the mass for a project/venture, where the project owner explains and informs about his/her idea of the project and then set the budget which will be required for the completion. Then the public contributes towards the project if they feel that the project is worthy enough.
