Frequently asked questions
On the platform crowdify.net Initiators (musicians, artists, designers... you!) present their projects and leave them there for 100 days to be funded by Boosters.
In return the Boosters (friends, acquaintances, companies, benefactors...) receive exclusive goodies from the Initiator, such as a signed CD, a personally dedicated book, a mention in film credits etc. – Boosters witness the realisation of the project and can even play an active role in the process.
You want to produce a film, publish a book, create a fashion collection, record an album, produce an artwork, organise an event, or launch a product on the market? No matter what your project is, crowdify.net is the platform for you to present your project, launch smart promotional campaigns and attract fans who will provide financial contributions, large and small, to help turn your project into reality.

- The simple donation process! A Booster (donor) can make a contribution at any timewithout going through a tiresome login process
- Convenient payment methods. The Booster (donor) can make a donation by TWINT, credit card, Paypal or via Postfinance.
- Security. crowdify.net works with two companies: RaiseNow and FairGive. RaiseNow handles electronic payments on behalf of crowdify.net, whereas FairGive is entrusted with managing project donations during an ongoing project, thereby allowing for contributions to be quickly and securely processed and the protection of data to be guaranteed.

- Full support for Project Initiators. Access to tips, tricks and tools for successful project promotion, developed exclusively for crowdify.net by experts in the field of advertising and social media
Three things: Firstly, create an attractive profile for your project on crowdify.net. Use videos, pictures and text, as well as creative and enticing goodies. You have to capture people’s imagination if you want them to support your project
Then: Promote your project! Give it everything you’ve got for 100 days, with plenty of creativity, passion and drive. And raise the money you need. P.S.: Don’t be shy!
Last but not least: use the money you have raised to realise your project
Nothing. Once your project has been successfully funded (and only then!), crowdify.net will deduct a handling fee amounting to 9% excl. VAT (incl. fees charged by financial service providers , resp. 11% for a funding in stages) of the total amount you have collected and then transfer the remaining sum to you.
At crowdify.net you get everything: one-on-one support, expert tips, tools, tricks and statistics for the duration of your project, as well as the full promotional force of Ron Orp.
Don’t be sad. All the money donated will be returned to the Boosters (donors). Your project will still be visible for a period of 10 days on crowdify.net.
You decide how long you want your crowdfunding project to run for. From 1 to max. 120 days everything is possible. A duration of 100 days is actually a bit of an overlong perion of time for a crowdfunding. Remeber, you have to actively promote your project every single day while its active. Should you want to choose a duration that isn’t within the preset duration choices, just shoot us an e-mail at email@example.com and we’re happy to help you.
Who is behind Crowdify?
Crowdify (formerly 100-days.net) is the crowdfunding platform from Ron Orp, the most urban media in Switzerland. How we came to be:
2004: First Ron Orp newsletter
Two entrepreneurs, Romano Strebel and Christian Klinner, have a vision: they want to network the people of Zurich and inspire their city life. The first Ron Orp newsletter is sent to about 100 people.
2007: Ron Orp expands
With over 30,000 subscribers, Ron Orp has become an indispensable part of Zurich city life. A website with a marketplace and forum is created to allow Ron Orp readers to share information with each other. Ron Orp expands into five more cities.
2012: Crowdfunding for everyone
A networked community of city dwellers has grown up around Ron Orp in the meantime. A community with many great ideas and projects in and around the city. But there is often a lack of money to implement the ideas. Ron Orp launches 100-days.net, one of the first crowdfunding platforms in Switzerland.
2018: 100-Days becomes Crowdify
After 6 years of crowdfunding and over 2,000 crowdfunding projects it's time for a new start! New name, new design, new features. Always backed by the power of Ron Orp (now in 9 Swiss cities with over 300,000 users).
