Kickstarter UK launch confirmed for Halloween 2012

The crowd-sourcing website Kickstarter will officially open its virtual doors to UK entrepreneurs at the end of this month (October 31st).

The website, which has seen projects like the Pebble Smartwatch, TriggerTrap camera trigger and most recently, the Android based OUYA games console come to fruition through public pledges, promised an autumn launch on British soil earlier this year.

Get started

Although Kickstarter UK will not go live until the end of the month, users can begin building their project pages from today.

In a statement, the company said:

“Beginning October 31, people in the United Kingdom will be able to launch their projects on Kickstarter.”

So what exactly do you need to know about getting started with Kickstarter? Here’s more from Kickstarter:

“Beginning today, people in the UK can get started building their projects by clicking on the ‘Start a new project’ button on the Start page and selecting the UK as their country.”

“When we’re ready for projects to launch on October 31, we’ll send an email letting them know that they can hit the launch button whenever they’re ready.”

Kickstarter also revealed that foreign backers will still be able to contribute to British-based projects, in the same way that that oversees users can pledge financial support for projects in North America.

Payments will be made directly to Kickstarter (through a third-party) rather than through the Amazon Payments service the company uses in the US.
