The experience with IgnitionDeck to date has been positive! Our team hoped to create a reward-based crowdfunding platform in South Africa and researched looking for a reasonably priced cloud-based white-label platform, that had classical crowdfunding functionality, and a decent design. There are lots of options that offer two of the above-mentioned points but it was IgnitionDeck that had the needed solution, in particular, the IgnitionDeck Enterprise solution. IgnitionDeck Enterprise allows some customization with limited coding knowledge and more customization if you have coding experience. We had to integrate a local payment platform, which turned out to be tricky. Our programmers managed to reach a suitable solution with Merchant Account and 3rd party payment processor. The IgnitionDeck support team is good and customer-oriented and doing an extra mile for the customer. To summarise: there are some challenged, but connecting with the right people and partnerships allows the Enterprise solution to meet our criteria.

We bought the Ignitiondeck Enterprise which is a superior WP Theme built on a professional Frame. The valet under the supervision of Ms. Emma gave us professional customization and went above and beyond the paid project, to also give us FREE code and tutorial-knowledge. If your site is for professional use. NOTHING comes close to IgnitionDeck, nothing. This is a Five Star team and customer service. 5 Star

I ignored the host of bad reviews and was taken in by the recommendations of some plugin sites (who perhaps get fees?). This plugin created so many errors, it was difficult to keep the site admin online long enough to attempt the configuration. Those configuration instructions incidentally, you'll need to locate yourself. For something so unfriendly to the normal WordPress environment, I'd think an installation or onboarding script would guide you through your first steps, but no. This installation actually drops 3 plugins on your site. It's something you don't get to find out until you've created a profile and it's actually happening in the background. When it came time to give up on this software, uninstalling was even worse. One of the three plugins installed, "Ignitiondeck Crowdfunding," refused to be uninstalled. It ultimately required manually renaming the plugin's directory. It then removed successfully, although such a buggy removal leaves me wondering what remnants were left behind. Database has been cleaned up now too, but I'm still left wondering what all the software may have left. Unless you're the adventurous type and comfortable making file level changes on your server, I'd recommend avoiding this plugin.
