Kickstarter for funding an online shop?
Good luck with that.
Usually those are projects creating some new product for a market niche, not substituting the owner's investment.
But who knows?
BTW: serial numbers shall be unique to identify the product, that's their goal. Using custom serial numbers is called spoofing.
