Fans contribute to projects either by choosing a reward or the "No Reward, I Just want to contribute" button during checkout.

If the project reaches or exceeds its funding target, the funds are dispersed to the Creator. If a Fan selects the Unconditional Support option during the checkout process, the funds are sent to the project Creator regardless of whether the project reaches its target. 

If the project does not reach its target and the Unconditional Support option is not selected during checkout, the funds are then returned to the Fan.
