When it comes to Fundry users, everyone is broken down into two main categories: developers and funders. As the names imply, developers are the users who actually create new features, while funders are the users who pay for features to be created for their projects. Whether you’re a developer or a funder, you can upload information about a project you’re working on to the Fundry site. Assuming you’re a developer, you can then upload information about certain features you’re planning to develop for an application or a project and then sit back and watch as your current users begin pledging money to go towards the creation of those new features. Each user who has pledged money will receive an email notice when your work is done, inviting them to visit Fundry and vote on whether your feature should be accepted or rejected. Assuming your feature was accepted right away, you’ll receive the money that has been pledged and your funders will finally be able to take advantage of the new web feature they’ve been dying to try.
Whether or not a particular feature is accepted or rejected depends on what the majority of voters think, and even those who have rejected the work will still have to pay if they fall into the minority in terms of overall opinion. For developers and web community users alike, Fundry offers an excellent way to help the users of popular web-applications get the new features and tools they really want.
