Kickstart Pledges

Hi, i need to build / integrate a similar model that Kickstarter to use on my website. I understand that when users make a pledge to a project, they are not actually charged until the target amount is reached and the project timeframe ends. What happens if the user has no funds in their amazon account when the project is successful. Thanks in advance for anyhelp you can give on this...

" What happens if the user has no funds in their amazon account when the project is successful."  That can't happen because funds are charged.  If the project does not fund, then money is returned.

Thanks, but i thought that the users use amazon payments... is that no the same as paypal preapproved payments
The idea is you need to charge or withdraw funds from the person that is pledging.  Then if the thing funds, you release the funds to the group asking for money less whatever fee is charged.  If it does not fund, you refund the full fee charged to the people that pledged.

Thanks but I don't think that is correct as Kickstarters whole policy is that you are not charged until it is successful... otherwise there would be transaction fees would apply twice as there is funds to and then a refund transaction
