Crowdtilt is publicly releasing its open source, white-label platform dubbed CrowdtiltOpen for businesses looking to launch their own crowdfunding platform.
The product, previously called Crowdhoster, has been rebranded and relaunched with several new features designed for those wanting to customize and self-host their own fundraising campaigns.
The tool offers an expanded feature set which includes recurring billing, direct payments (Visa, MasterCard, Discover, Amex), full customization or a choice from provided themes, analytics integration (e.g. Google, AdRoll, Optimizely, etc.), reward tiers, no time limitations, PCI compliance, support for non-profits soliciting donations, multiple campaigns, and as, noted above, bitcoin integration.
Crowdtilt says the platform is free to use, but will charge standard credit card processing fees of 2.9% + $0.30 per transaction. For now, the company says it has no plans to charge for the current feature set.
