The Australian Business Arts Foundation (AbaF) is receives many calls from artists interested in setting up crowdsourcing but many are puzzled by the jargon of the field.

Here are some definitions you need to know:

  • Platform: The website or service used to collect pledges (eg Pozible)
  • Project: The product, service or program that is registered on the platform.
  • Project Creator: The person who or organisation that establishes and maintains a project on a platform.
  • Contributor/supporter: A person who pledges money to a project online.
  • Reward: A perk, product or experience offered by the project creator in return for a certain level of contribution.
  • Income target: Established by the project creator prior to launching, this is the minimum amount that must be pledged in order to receive any cash.
  • Timeframe: Established by the project creator prior to launching, this is the maximum amount of time a project has to reach its goal.
  • Commission: The fee charged by the platform provider and their suppliers (eg Paypal). Usually this is only charged if the goal is reached within the timeframe.
