When you contribute to someone's crowdfunding project on PieShell, you are offering them financial support for the project they are running. In return, you have the option to receive a gift or waive it. This option will be available to you during the checkout process.
Am I charged immediately?
No. When you contribute, you are pledging your support only if the project is successful. Your card is not charged at the time you complete your transaction.
When am I charged?
If the project is successful (i.e., hits its first stepping-stone goal), you will be charged once the project meets its deadline. You will receive an email confirmation when the charge is made.
