Goombert, don't forget that you actually have to set up at least a payment method in order to receive pledges.
Also would like to add my 2 cents (no pun intended
) First, it would be nice to actually see on the page how many pledges received and amount. The amounts table are tiny, and I doubt that anybody will pledge the top tier $100 a week one - so it takes quite a lot of contributors to be worthy IMO and would only work with volume, otherwise how could a few people contributing cents a week help this project ? Some big projects online manage to raise tens of thousands of $, but the projects are on a much bigger scale.
It would encourage more potential contributors if they knew that others are contributing as well.
As far as payment method, PayPal should be a minimum, as this is what most people use.
