Can I decrease or increase the pledge on my goal?

You can lower your pledge if you wish, but this has a 7-day wait to take effect, like anything which makes your goal easier. If you have a Beemium plan you can also choose to increase your pledge immediately to any level. Each step up requires a click!

To do this, click on your current pledge amount to open up the "Adjust pledge" modal:

To lower your pledge, click "decrease pledge to $X". Each step-down requires a click, and each one takes seven days to take effect (but if you need to do multiple step-downs and it feels unfair to wait, you can contact support after the first one completes, and ask for us to step it down to the correct level).

Once you've set up a stepdown, you'll be able to see the planned new pledge in the header. In this screenshot, the pledge is decreasing from $30 to $10.

If you want to increase your pledge, this happens immediately (since it makes your goal harder).

When you've scheduled a stepdown, you can click on the pledge to recheck the modal if you want to see what date it will kick in. The screenshot below shows the change I just made will kick on 2022-02-17.

If you change your mind, you can click "Cancel change", and the countdown will stop. In this example, the pledge will then stay at $30!
