Is Rolling Funder safe?Absolutely!

We use Pay Fast, a Trusted third party payment provider. Once a Funder decides to support a campaign, the funds will go into the Rolling Funder, PayFast account. It will remain there until the campaign is over. If the campaign is successful, the funds will be transferred to the Roller.

If the campaign is not successful, the funds will be refunded to the Funder.

The benefits of crowdfunding

Crowdfunding benefits both the Roller and Funder. Funders get to support small local businesses that support the local economy while simultaneously being the first to find out and take part in new innovative ideas and products.

The Roller will gain awareness for his or her brand.

With crowdfunding Rollers get more than just capital:

They gain exposure and customers before the business is launched.

Rollers get to test their products or services on customers before they take the risk of getting a big loan from a bank.

It’s low-risk and interest free.

There’s no bank loan where they work their fingers to the bone only to pay the interest each month.

Rollers are the owners of their own businesses.

They retain 100% control over their business.

There are no large investors that pull the strings behind the curtains.
