The client approached us with this existing site and wanted us to create a plugin for it that would help the site to carry forward it's goal.
ConceptCatapult.com is a crowd funding website where merchants and their customers can post innovative ideas; while the interested people can fund these projects and help in making them into reality. For example, lets say a favorite TV show got canceled. You can start a campaign on ConceptCatapult to bring it back! Once the community has raised enough money, the TV show owner can take the funds and bring you the next TV show season.
The project was coming to create a WordPress plugin to manage this fundraiser website. By using this plug-in, users can manage their projects, they can post a project as a campaign and manage all about it in & out. A user can either choose to be a champion; or the admin can choose champion by following a biding process.
If users do not want to be a champion then the admin use the bidding process to select a champion. To support the project further, we have integrated the PayPal adaptive chain payment system. To make a payment, PayPal provides us a pre-approval key, valid upto 90 days. The payment option is used to transfer the raised amount to the expected party.
As this is a chain payment set-up, we have processed two different kind of payment options concurrently [93% payment would be transferred to the champion and 7% would be kept by the website owner as commission amount.]
