Gumroad has been specially created for creativity – for selling artistic digital and physical products online. Why does Gumroad work best with artists? There are various features that you won’t find on many other selling platforms, such as selling a single product in various versions (different colour, edition …) and there’s a pre-order option (custom painting or icon design, for example). You pay via monthly fee and/or transaction charge. As Gumroad is a hosting platform, you can carry on selling and keep an eye on your past, current and future orders even if you ‘lose’ your website domain or experience a coffee/laptop incident.
