Making a Pledge

GamePledge.com is not a store. It is a crowdfunding site where you may make a pledge towards a project. It also allows you to manage your pledge and select any rewards that the campaign creators promise you.

Your Account

If you have registered and signed in, to view your account details click on 'Your Account' in the top right hand corner of the page. 

If you have just registered, in the Account Overview please fill in your Shipping Address details to make the checkout process faster. These will be the addresses used to ship rewards to you when they are available.

1. Payment of Shipping Only (No Add-Ons)

If you wish to pay for your initial Kickstarter reward shipping ONLY visit your Account Dashboard and click Pay for Shipping. Any add-ons in your cart WILL NOT be processed. 

If you have add-ons in your cart you may follow the Cart Checkout process to pay for shipping and add-ons together. Click on Your Cart in the side menu, or the cart icon at the top of the page and follow list item 2.Your Cart (Including Add-Ons). 

 
The amount you will be paying for shipping will be displayed above the button. You do not need to add the reward to your cart. If your initial reward includes the 90mm scale model, this will be included in your shipping total.
 
  1. Make sure your Shipping Address is correct.
    PLEASE NOTE: You are responsible to provide the correct shipping address so that your reward can be shipped to you. If we ship your rewards and they are returned to us because of an incorrect address, you will incur additional shipping charges to ship the rewards a second time!
     
  2. If you have any Kickstarter credit, this will be used first to pay for your reward shipping. If the credits do not cover the full shipping cost, the remainder will be paid for through Paypal. This option will be automatially chosen for you.

2. Your Cart (Including Add-Ons)

When you click on the 'Add to Cart' button found in the product pages, your cart will be updated accordingly. You can view the amount of items and total pledge at a glance from the top right hand corner of the website. For a more detailed view click on the basket icon on the top right or click on Your Cart in Your Account.

You can modify the quantity of several items at once and then click Update Quantity when done.
By changing the quantity to 0 (zero) you will effectively remove that item from your pledge once you click Update Quantity.
 
Once you are happy with the items in your cart and would like to finalise your pledge, click Proceed to Checkout.
 
Please note that currently payments are still not enabled until we have more accurate weight estimates of the items, so that we can offer you the best possible shipping rates. You will receive a notification when we enable payments of pledges.
