Fundry is a different type of crowd funding platform for software developers. It is different because here you can get fund for developing a full software project or for features only for a already developed or open source software project. Funders can contribute to get the features they want. Its a win win situation for both the developers and the funders.
In Fundry, a software developer can add a project and list features that he/she plan to develop, as well as accept or reject new feature requests from the community. Once the pledged fund is raised for a feautre, the developer develops the feature and releases to the funders community to accept the work. Funders get 7 days to accepts or reject the feature. If majority of funders accept the feature, the developer gets all the pledged amount but if a minority of funders accept the feature, the developer gets fund from only those funders that have accepted the feature. Fundry charges 5% fee on any funds you receive from funders and a PayPal fees when you withdraw the fund to your Paypal account.
Funders can load money to their Fundry account and pledge for new features or project. Funders have full control to their money and can cancel a pledge any time they want before the development is complete. This way a funder can get a new feature by paying only the fraction of the actual development cost.
