Is it ok to offer rewards to campaign donors?
Yes, you can give rewards to donors. Rewards should be related to your campaign or can be promotional items such as mugs, t-shirts, or calendars. Clearly defining your campaign, adding disclaimers to your website and marketing material will help you to launch a successful campaign.
When offering rewards you must:
- List the type of rewards you’re offering in exchange for each donation amount.
- Include a disclaimer on your campaign site and marketing material that you will make a best effort to provide the reward but delivery is not guaranteed.
Rewards that are not allowed include:
- Gold or silver coins or bullion
- Raffle tickets
- Gift cards
- A right or interest in property
Reward-based campaigns without a delivery disclaimer or with concurrent advance product sales will be considered Preselling and may be subject to payment holds.
