Business Challenge

One of the major challenging parts of the project – is to make precisely secure payments. This is somewhat contrasting to the ease of content management since the majority of popular CMS tools are not known to be the best at security measures. We chose the Laravel framework for custom crowdfunding software development to protect users’ payment as possible. Also, another point that Chudovo developers needed to address – accepting the utility bills as payment methods. This is a practice that is used in many charities' payment processing, so we needed to handle that issue too.

Our Solution

The system is created for charity crowdfunding. The users can create crowdfunding projects for certain charity causes and at the same time donate to the other projects. For payment, users can use PayPal, credit cards, utility bills, etc. After the payment, people can share their contributions to the campaign on social media platforms. It has been implemented a custom WordPress theme and customized back-end functionality to suit the project requirements. For example, one of the payment methods is built to accept utility bills (for gas or electricity) from another project from the same client.
