Kickstarter Officially Opens in Canada

People based in Canada can now build Kickstarter projects, the crowdfunding platform announced Monday.

Excited to announce that Canada-based creators can start building projects right now!http://t.co/c8SDQSVAzS

— Kickstarter (@kickstarter) August 5, 2013

To begin, Canadian users must click on the site's "Start a new project" button and select "Canada," according to a blog post. Projects will open to the public starting Sept. 9.

"We thought the month-long gap would give everyone plenty of time to build and tweak their projects before launching," the post said

Canada-based Kickstarter projects will function in the exact same way as those in the U.S. and UK — including all-or-nothing funding and rewards — with one exception. Pledges will be processed through a third-party payments system, and backers of Canadian projects must enter their payment information directly on Kickstarter. (Creators in the U.S. must sign up for an Amazon Payments account.) For details on Canadian payment-processing fees, check out Kickstarter's Q&A.
