How do I pledge? What payment methods do you accept?

To pledge to a project, just click the yellow “Back this project!” button on any project page. You will then be asked to enter your pledge amount and select if you want your pledge to be anonymous or not.

If you’re not logged into a Spacehive account you’ll be directed to log in or create an account. Spacehive require basic account info (name, email address, and password) so that we can contact you regarding your pledge if need be, and so that you can edit your email preferences. It’s a nice touch to also add a photo to put a face to the pledge.

After creating your Spacehive account you’ll be able to select your payment method. There will be (either or both, depending on project creator preferences) PayPal (debit or credit card) and GoCardless (bank account Direct Debit).

You will be asked to authorise the payment but will only be charged if, and only if, the project hits its funding target. If the project doesn’t succeed, you won’t be charged anything.
