To fulfill crowdfunding rewards, follow the steps below to deliver video rewards to your backers.
Products are what get delivered to your backers. Create a new Buy/Rent Product with the videos the backers will receive. We recommend naming it something your backers will recognize such as "[your campaign title] Backer Rewards."
Under Distribution, make sure you click Ready to Sell (we’ll make sure it’s unpublished in the next steps). Then add the content for your backers.
Enter any price in the pricing section. The backers will not see this price at all.
Once you’ve finished, click publish and a popup will appear confirming the settings you’ve chosen. Make sure you click publish later so the product remains unpublished.
Go back to your products page and you’ll see the product there marked as unpublished.
On the Customers page, click Add Customer, select the Product you want to send, paste a comma-separated list of up to 100 of your backer's email addresses in the Recipients field, and add an optional custom message to be included in the email to the recipients. Your backers will receive an email to start watching immediately, and you will be emailed a confirmation that they have all received it. Each product access sent costs you $1.
Note: Alternatively, Vimeo On Demand might be an option for you to fulfill your rewards. To fulfill on Vimeo OTT, it costs $1 per backer, and on Vimeo On Demand, you can make an unlimited amount of codes you can disperse for free.
