IgnitionDeck Documentation

IgnitionDeck Commerce (IDC)

IgnitionDeck Commerce (IDC) is a membership-centric E-commerce tool for processing payments, facilitating customer relations, and distributing digital goods and content.

IDC is appropriate for any situation where you intend to have long-term or repeat customers, or want to streamline paid access to your digital goods or content.

It also serves as the commerce backbone for IgnitionDeck Enterprise and IgnitionDeck+Membership. By handling CRM, paid membership levels, and distribution of product all under one roof, IDC helps take the burden of logistics and checkout flow off of project submitters and keeps them more focused on their actual crowdfunding campaigns. The benefit to administrators is that they are in full control of their own site while still having the bulk of the busywork done for them.
