    Indiegogo does crowdfunding, yes, but it appears they do not do any vetting on the campaign owners. I’ve now been waiting almost a year for delivery of an item, despite South Africa having been open for international deliveries since before July last year. The campaign owner (China/Hong Kong based, it appears) just keep sending general updates that mean nothing. I’m sure Indiegogo must know about this; yet there’s no sign of intervention. Their accountability seems questionable.

    Indiegogo is a hotbed for scammers. I have backed around 25 projects and over 50% of them turned out to be scams. I’ve been stupid enough to fall for the lies and deceit fed to me on the Indiegogo platform. IGG rules say no scams etc., but they apparently do nothing to vet the campaigners, nor do they have any process to control or manage the campaigns; campaigners are free and able to do and act how they see fit…! I have lodged relevant complaints with IGG on several occasions and they have done nothing, nothing at all, except to tell me they can’t find any wrong doing. Of course they can’t not when a scam of over $1 million USD nets them $50 thousand USD for sitting on their hands…! I have used other platforms, Kickstarter being the main rival I believe, and I have not had 1 problem, not 1…! I have all the evidence required to back up my claims should anyone be interested. To confirm, I have had a handful of successful purchases from IGG, but unfortunately the scams exceeding $800 USD far outweigh those successes…!!!

    Horrible experience, similiar to as what had already been said by other user. Uploading fotos and videos took forever, but the worst was that link was not working. People who wanted to support the project couldn’t find it on their site. Was complaining several times, vague responses after days, that had nothing to do with issue. Found expert on Indiegogo, who confirmed that project was not on their site anymore even though the campaign was still rollin. He even talked to “insiders” / people working at Indiegogo and they explained that only those projects remain on the site that get a certain amount of money in a certain amount of time. The rest is just lost in translation or wherever… So-called “Indiegogo” is not for the indies but for bigger players who just use it for advertising their stuff to people, the rest just pays for the site but has almost no chance. Indiegogo is a scam in my opinion and the article way way too positive

    I started a campaign with Indiegogo. Had a horrible time uploading photos and videos. When I tried to reach out to them they wouldn’t respond…. by email only…. for four or five days. When I launched the campaign links that they provided wouldn’t work…. again tried to contact them and let them know and were very slow to respond. When they did it was just cut and paste items from their website. I deleted my campaign after 12 days as I was getting a crazy amount of emails from friends and family saying links weren’t working then were working. SOOOOOOO…. Frustrating. I spent nearly a month preparing everything including a video which I spent $2000 to make. Horrible company! Horrible!

    For two years, I have paid over $230. However I didn’t receive any perks. I have contacted campaigners several times, but nobody replied for my messages. For the campaigns I have contributed, I have not received any of the them.
