The PayPal Killer? Sell Anything Online in Seconds with Gumroad

Selling what you make online is more complex and frustrating than it should be.

Platforms like iTunes and Kindle take a huge cut of your profits, well-known payment processors freeze funds with no explanation, and most shopping cart software looks like it was built in the 90’s.

Not to mention that these solutions are hard to use, take your customers off your site, and make it nearly impossible to reach an actual human being for support.

And even some of the best payment processing companies (such as Stripe, who we use for Fizzle.co) can still be complicated to implement without a developer.

Enter Gumroad. They have created one of the simplest and best designed ways for individuals to get paid for what they make online.

The last time I was up in San Francisco I had the pleasure of sitting down and talking with Ryan Delk, the business development lead at Gumroad, about what Gumroad can do, how it works, and how simple it is to use.

The Top 10 Mistakes in Online Business

Every week we talk with entrepreneurs. We talk about what’s working and what isn’t. We talk about successes and failures. We spend time with complete newbies, seasoned veterans, and everything in between.

One topic that comes up over and over again with both groups is mistakes made in starting businesses. Newbies love to learn about mistakes so they can avoid them. Veterans love to talk about what they wish they had known when starting out.

These conversations have been fascinating, so we compiled a list of the 10 mistakes we hear most often into a nifty lil' guide.
