…users can offer a range of different things – from sticker packs to $100 headphones at the moment. Unlike other platforms, however, it seems to be more of a marketing channel for people running subreddits to sell merchandise, rather than exclusively being a place for people to raise funds products still in development or other causes. It’s early days though, and the platform is still only in open beta at this stage, so you can expect to see further tweaks over time.
