As a backer, your pledge can be changed or cancelled at any time prior to the request being accepted by the target of the request. Once accepted, your pledge can’t be reduced or cancelled. This ensures fulfillers have a reasonable expectation of what their bounty reward will be should they put in the time and effort to successfully fulfill the request.

<aside> ⚠️ Remember, even after a request is accepted and your pledge is locked, you still won’t be charged until after the request has been fulfilled.
