Amazon.com processes all the pledges on Kickstarter. When you decide to make a pledge, we’ll quickly take you to Amazon.com to confirm. If you have an Amazon.com account this takes only a few clicks. If you don’t have an Amazon.com account, Amazon will ask you to register during the pledge process, but it’s relatively painless. You won’t need to do anything annoying (like stop in the middle and check your email).Funding ends when time expires. At that point one of two things happens: If a project has reached or exceeded its funding goal when time expires, all backers’ credit cards are instantly charged and funds go directly to the project creator. If funding doesn’t succeed, all pledges are immediately canceled like nothing ever happened. That’s it!
