Reddit launches new crowdfunding website called Redditmade

BY CrowdFunding Beat News Wire, 

Hello, mods of reddit! We are thrilled to announce an entirely new project that we hope will enhance your experience on reddit, create stronger subreddit communities, allow redditors to collaborate and support each other, and empower redditors to make a difference.

We’ll be announcing this to the rest of the world tomorrow, but we wanted to make sure you had a chance to explore the site and even start creating and backing campaigns if you want to before everyone else does.

So what is redditmade?

redditmade is a new place to turn the best designs and products by the community into reality. redditmade gives you the flexibility to create almost anything you want, easily raise money, and support causes you care about. It’s also a great way for others to find awesome new products they’ll love and support other redditors while knowing their information and money will always be secure.

How does this impact moderators?

One of the biggest reasons we created redditmade was to allow subreddits an easy way to create official subreddit merch for their communities. Whatever you want to make, we’ll connect you to our network of quality sourcing partners for a variety of products and walk you through every step of the process so your community can celebrate your connection and show off your pride without all the work.

Official subreddit campaigns get additional support

Official subreddit campaigns are distinguished on redditmade as featured campaigns, and they can also receive complimentary ads on reddit for the subreddit they are associated with. These ads are a bonus provided if there are impressions available, but the number of views they get may vary, and we can’t guarantee they will be shown at all if a subreddit’s ad space has already been sold. These ads will be automatically generated by our system, so there is no additional work for you to do.

We also allow individuals to create campaigns, and someone in your community may create a product they would like to connect to your subreddit. If this happens, we’ll send you a mod mail asking you to endorse this product as an official subreddit campaign if you think it accurately represents your community.

Choose your cause and safely collect funds

You can choose to donate the profits of your product to any organization, charity, event, or individual so you can raise money for the causes that matter most to your community. (You can also sell them at cost so you don’t have to worry about who receives the profits of the campaign.) We make it easy for everyone to pledge their payment, providing a secure way to raise funds and keep people accountable without charging anyone until the campaign reaches its goal and we start production.

Learn more here, or start exploring now! You can create a campaign or browse current active campaigns!.

Edit: We’d love to work with you on products specific to your subreddit! You can create a shirt all on your own, or if you have an amazing idea for something unique, PM /u/rhygaar and we’ll help you get set up as soon as possible!

By Dean Van Nguyen, Internet communities platform Reddit is expanding its operation with the launch of Kickstarter-esque crowdfunding website Redditmade.

The new service will allow Reddit users to develop merchandise to help raise cash for themselves or a cause they care about.


A beta version of the site is currently operational and Reddit is pushing T-shirts as the easiest campaign to create starting off. Once a user submits a design, decides how many shirts he or she wants to sell and what price to charge, the seller has 30 days to reach his or her goal. If enough people pledge to buy the tee, Reddit will produce it. If the goal is not met, neither the user nor those who backed the project are charged.

“You can create almost anything you want on Redditmade, whether it’s a hat, sticker, glass, or something super specially customised and unique,” wrote the company via the new site’s About Us page.

“We’ll help you make it happen! Want to make a T-shirt? You can create your design and make your campaign go live in just a few minutes.”

The first campaigns are already up and running, though the site cannot yet pay out to bank accounts that aren’t based in the US.
