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.
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.
