AND WE'RE BACK!
May 9, 2012We have learned that our Revenue Collection Services - which provide individuals outside of the US with the ability to use Kickstarter - have, effectively, been shut down. Amazon Payments sent notice that Bridgestarter's accounts have been suspended. We are currently trying to rectify the situation with Amazon Payments and hope for a speedy resolution. In the meantime, we have refunded all fees paid by our customers and have issued letters of explanation and apology.
In spite of this setback, we remain committed to helping entrepreneurs raise money for their projects:
- Both our Professional and Distribution services remain available to those wishing to launch projects on other crowdfunding sites (i.e. indiegogo.com, rockethub.com, etc.);
- In the coming weeks, Bridgestarter.com will be redeveloped to enable entrepreneurs to promote their projects on the site for free; and
- We are watching the CROWDFUND Act legislation in the United States, as there may be an opportunity to use Bridgestarter as either a vehicle for crowdfunding or as an investment fund.
Please reach us with any questions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
