Your Gumroad profile
Your profile is your Gumroad home base. You can use it to introduce yourself to your customers with your profile picture and a bio, and build your following by collecting email addresses.
Your profile is located at username.gumroad.com where [username] is replaced with your unique username. You can also get there by visiting app.gumroad.com/profile or by clicking on your name and then the Profile button in the Gumroad navigation.
This is also where you showcase your work once you add products for sale. You can rearrange them or hide them from view. Head on over to your profile settings page to make any desired changes.
Set up your profile
Here you can update the public-facing information for your customers to read, including a short bio (we’ve found that a sentence or two works best rather than overly-long descriptions of your entire career path).
You can also connect your Twitter profile which will then be linked with an icon on the profile page itself.
Customize fonts and colors
Choose from different font styles, accent and background colors to align the look of your Gumroad more closely with your branding. These settings won’t affect your product’s content, just the profile, product, and post pages and emails.
Edit the products section
Want to more directly control in what order your products appear? With these options, you can choose to sort by price, star rating, or a custom order of your choosing. To set the custom order, select your Default Sort Order as ‘Featured’, and then drag the products by selecting the 6 dots on the left side.
Also, if you’d like to not display a product on your profile page, simply click the pink check box to hide it.
Turn filters on/off
When you have more than nine products on your Gumroad store, you will automatically see filters pop up on the left side of your screen. These help customers organize and more easily explore your products as they browse. Your products can be sorted, or filtered by rating and the types of files they contain.
If you do not want your customers to see the filters, you can turn them off by toggling "Show product filters"
Can I show "Categories" on my page?
No, we don't have a way for you to show categories on your profile page. But here's a quick workaround if you have more than nine products.
- Add tags to all of your products. Learn about adding tags here
- Allow filters to be shown on your profile page
- Send customers to your profile page URL with the tag added to the URL. To do that, simply take: [The URL of your product page] + ?sort=page_layout&tags=[tag]
Here's an example using Gumroad user Matkat Music. If we were to link customers solely to the "Tutorial" products on the page, then we take the formula above:
[The URL of your product page + ?sort=page_layout&tags=[tag] and replace it with the URL and tag, so:
https://matkatmusic.gumroad.com/ + ?sort=page_layout&tags=tutorial
Highlight a membership
You have the option to display a membership of yours on your Profile. Select the membership you want to highlight under Highlighted membership. You can turn this feature off by selecting Don't show Membership.
This is how it displays:
You can send people directly to your highlighted Membership by adding /membership to the end of your URL, like https://annagreen.gumroad.com/membership
