Getting paid by Gumroad

- Payout modes
- Payout schedule
- Enable payments via PayPal
- The account review process
The TL;DR: of this page is - as long as you are able to receive money through PayPal, you can use Gumroad. Residents of some countries are able to receive weekly payouts to their bank or Stripe accounts. If your country is not on the list of direct deposit countries, then you by default can only receive payouts via PayPal. If you are unable to receive money through PayPal because PayPal doesn't work in your country, then we have no way to pay you, as we don't have alternate payment methods for people in this situation right now.
If you want to get paid for your sales, you first need to fill out your payments settings.
How you get paid by Gumroad depends on the country in which you are physically located. For prompt payouts, please ensure that you have the following for your country of residence:
- A valid, government-issued photo ID
- Proof of residence within the country
Also, if you are selling as a business, the business must be registered in the same country. Having a bank account based in another country will not, unfortunately, allow us to pay you out to that bank account unless you physically live (and can prove that you live) in that country.

Depending on your country, bank payouts can take 2-7 business days to process, and can be delayed around banking holidays.
We can only pay out to a local bank account and in your local currency. We cannot pay you out in USD if you are not from the US.
All currency conversions happen based on the exchange rates at the time of sale, not at the time of the payout. These are typically mid-market rates that you can estimate here.
Note: It is not possible to change your account’s country if your current country supports bank payouts. If you'd like to change your country in the future, you will need to create a new Gumroad account. Unfortunately, we are unable to transfer your customers, products, or balance to another account. Choose carefully!
Get paid to Stripe
You can connect your Stripe account to receive payments for credit card sales directly to your Stripe account. Learn all about this feature here.
Get paid to PayPal
If bank payouts are not supported in your country, you will be paid out via PayPal. You just need to have an individual or business PayPal account without any restrictions.
PayPal payouts are always processed in USD, and usually in 1-3 business days.
Other payout modes
Unfortunately, we do not support alternative payout modes like Payoneer, Wise, check, money order, wire transfer, etc.
All payouts require a minimum balance of US$10.
Each payout is for sales made up to the previous Friday UTC. This means that the sale amount sits in your Gumroad balance for at least 7 days before being paid out.
You can download a CSV report for each payout from the Payouts dashboard which includes a breakdown of all Gumroad fees and customer data.
Enable payments via PayPal
If you have connected your PayPal account with Gumroad, proceeds from all sales via PayPal will be credited to your connected account at the time of sale, in the default currency of your PayPal account. This appears on your Payouts page as “PayPal Payouts”.
The account review process
For our review, we require your account to be legitimate in two major ways:
- You comply with both Gumroad’s terms and those of our payment processors.
- Your account is not racking up chargebacks and suspicious purchases.
The review process can take 1-3 weeks depending on your sales and the data we can analyze. Typically, this means 3-4 sales with a balance over US$10; however, every account is unique so we thank you for your patience.
Note: NSFW account reviews can take longer because they have a higher risk profile.
You cannot speed up the review process by purchasing your own product. Payment processors view purchasing your own products as fraudulent, and this can get you suspended or permanently banned. If you just want to test your product, please use the test purchase feature.
