Kickstarter - Frequently Asked Questions

What is Kickstarter and how does it work?

Kickstarter is an online platform that helps creators, like us, bring projects to life with the help of others. Backers pledge money and in exchange, campaign creators give backers a reward.

To learn more about how Kickstarter works, see Kickstarter Basics.

Who can launch a project on Kickstarter?

Anyone who meets Kickstarter’s creator requirements can launch a campaign. All Kickstarter campaigns, however, must be reviewed by Kickstarter to ensure they comply with Kickstarter’s rules. You can read more on this here and here.

What is a backer?

Backers are people who make a pledge or “back” a campaign on Kickstarter.

What is a pledge?

Backers make a pledge in the form of money to help bring projects, like SuperFat, to life. To thank backers for their support, project creators offer a reward in exchange for a backer’s pledge.

For our campaign, you’ll receive SuperFat in exchange for your pledge. See the pledge levels and back SuperFat on Kickstarter. 

Why is SuperFat using Kickstarter?

We're already in production... so why do we need Kickstarter? Great question. Well, we have a big mission: to help people live healthier lives by reducing obesity and diabetes around the world. As such, we need the support of people like you!

Kickstarter allows us to build a passionate community of like-minded individuals who want to support our mission and want to not only improve their own lives but others as well. Not only can you help make this possible, but you'll be able to help us develop future products as well. To join the movement, back our campaign.

How do I back SuperFat on Kickstarter?

To back SuperFat on Kickstarter, head to our campaign page and select a pledge level. You’ll check-out directly on Kickstarter and will be charged when our Kickstarter campaign ends on March 1st, if we hit our $10,000 funding goal.

Do I need a Kickstarter account to back SuperFat’s campaign?

Nope! You can back our projects as a guest. You do not need to create an account.

What do I receive in exchange for backing SuperFat on Kickstarter?

In exchange for making a pledge or backing us on Kickstarter, we’ll send you SuperFat. There are different levels of pledges available and each one includes a different amount of SuperFat.

You can back us on Kickstarter and see the pledge options here.

Am I guaranteed to receive SuperFat if I make a pledge?

Kickstarter’s funding is all-or-nothing so as long as we hit our goal of raising $10,000 by March 1st, you’ll receive your SuperFat. If we do not hit our goal, you will not be charged and we will not be able to create and ship SuperFat.

When will my credit card be charged?

Your credit card will only be charged if we hit our $10,000 funding goal. If we hit our goal, your card will be charged on March 1st, the day our campaign ends. If we don’t hit our goal, your card will not be charged and we will not ship out the product.

If SuperFat hits it’s campaign goal, when will I receive my SuperFat?

If we hit our campaign goal by March 1st, we expect to be shipping products out by mid to late March.

How long is the SuperFat Kickstarter campaign?

You can back SuperFat on Kickstarter until March 1, 2019.

What is SuperFat going to do with the money?

We will use the money raised to help bring SuperFat to life and get SuperFat shipped out to you faster.
