No, you can pledge as a guest without creating a Seed&Spark account where we only as for a name and an email address. However, you can create an account during the pledge process. It takes only 30 seconds to complete and the only additional info needed is a selection of a city for your location and the creation of a password. Creating an account means you can manage your pledge, and makes supporting future projects even easier.
If you pledged to the campaign as a guest, you won't be able to receive project updates from the creator during and after the campaign. if you've already pledged as a guest and would like to make another pledge using the same email, you will need to create an account.
We never share your information and use Stripe, a trusted third party, for all credit card transactions.
