What is Gumroad?

Gumroad is a super-simple e-commerce platform for different kind of creators like artists, designers, developers, educators, writers, and podcasters... It was founded by Sahil Lavingia in 2011.

Gumroad was described as "a platform that helps all types of creators earn a living selling what they make directly to their audiences", but Sahil changed the explanation above in 2019..

You can sell anything digital or even physical products, but those are less common.
