What Converts Webpage Visits Into Crowdfunding Contributions: Assessing the Role of Circumstantial Information

Crowdfunding projects display circumstantial information. Little is known about its role in funding decision-making. We assess whether the number of past contributions (NPC), the relative amount raised (RAR), and the time left in the campaign (TLC) influence the funding rate. RAR and TLC influence funding till the target is reached.
