Is GoFundMe a good trusty crowdfunding site? Answered

I just want to know if GoFundMe is safe?

Is there any frauds that I should be aware of?

I know your project will not be seen unless you share the link but I don't mind.

I wanted to use Kickstarter but it's only in the US and you need to give a reward.
Indiegogo can be used for charity causes but they Take $25 off the final amount for users out of the US.

GoFundMe takes 0.30 Cents per donations so it might not be too good?

Please let me know what you think. :)

You could try Patreon (https://www.patreon.com)?

Kickstarter is not limited to the US.
The German "Kraftwerk" was founded through Kickstarter, if I am not mistaken some of the other projects there are from all over the world.
In the end you always have to pay something back, a fixed sum is IMHO better than something based on the donations, but it depends on the size of the project.

Thanks for the reply but I finally just decided to put a Paypal "donate" button on a webpage and I'll just link people to it. :)
