Hi everybody,

I have a campaign i would like to launch soon, and it includes a number of product options for backers. I would like to keep the rewards simple by using a pledge calculator. The backer would choose what he wants to receive, click on a link and be taken to ta pledge calculator on our website. Then he simply enters the number of each product he wants and it gives him a total. This total he enters on his pledge.

My questions is how can we setup such a simple calculator on our website? We are not very experienced in web page management, and are at a loss as to how to do this. Is there some plugin for wordpress or similiar?

Many thanks, Richard

I'm pretty sure Kickstarter wouldn't allow a calculator like that, it has to be on the KS platform only.

Thanks is for the reply. I have seen many campaigns with such links to an external site where the calculator is. Often it appears to work like an embedded excel sheet, but some are more advanced. I just can't find a way to make such a simple table on a page on our website.
