Nearly three years after launching its crowdfunding platform in the country of Canada, Kickstarter unveiled its current favorite Canadian projects.
“We’re thrilled that Kickstarter is now available to creators in Canada. We’ve been waiting along time for this day to come, and we can’t wait to see what creative projects our friends in the Canada will launch – films, art, games, albums, players, performances, and much more.”
Much like the U.S., the Canadian Kickstarter platform has the following exceptions:
- There is no Canada specific site. Anyone may contribute to a Canada based project.
- All projects are in Canadian Dollars (the Loonie).
- Payments will be processed through a different processor than Amazon payments.
- The 5% fee is the same. No fee for unsuccessful projects. Payment processing fee is similar to UK.
Kickstarter is available in the U.S., Canada, UK, Australia, New Zealand, Ireland, the Netherlands, Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Spain, Austria, Belgium, Italy, Luxembourg, Switzerland, Germany and France.
