Choose a product type
Click “New product” on the Products dashboard and select a product type.
"Newsletter", "Membership," and "Podcast" type products will create subscription products with recurring charges.
If your product contains one or more physical goods to be shipped, select the “Physical good” product type.
Set a price
Click the currency sign to select from the display currency options—this cannot be changed once the product is created. Regardless of the display currency, please note that all charges are processed in USD.
Describe your product
Describe your product and style it inline. You can even add images, quotes, code blocks, or embed videos!
We create a unique URL for every product by default. If you'd like a more memorable URL for your customers, you can enter it here:
Read this article if you need help setting up a cover image or thumbnail for your product.
Provide additional product info
You can choose the “Call to action” that you prefer, but it’s currently not possible to set a custom call to action.
You can also add a summary and additional details for the product that will show up below the call to action on the product page.
Add content to your product
Go to your product’s “Content” tab and start typing!
You can add files, stamped PDFs, code blocks, embed videos with custom thumbnails (for download or streaming only), and more—right from the editor!
Pages allow you to structure and organize your content into easily digestible categories. You can create pages for different types of content; for example: introductory instructions, downloads, audio/video, terms/refund policy, etc.
To create a page:
- Click the “Create page” icon in the editor toolbar
- Give your page a name in the left-hand column
- Click “Add another page” to repeat the process
You can delete or rename pages by clicking the three dots beside the page name, or reorder them by dragging the six-dots icon on the left.
Your customers will see the product just as you see it in the editor, both on a browser and our mobile app as well!
It’s always a good habit to keep saving those changes intermittently.
Group files to create folders
Creating folders is as easy as dragging your files together into a stack. You can give your folder a name, reorder the files within, or drag files out to move them out or add them to another folder.
Track clicks on your URLs
If you control any URL(s) mentioned in your content, you can track/listen to clicks on them with the
__sale_info__ query parameter.
Append your links with
__sale_info__ to capture sales parameters like
product_permalink on the respective download page.
For example, a link like
https://example.com?__sale_info__ will be replaced with
https://example.com?sale_id=PURCHASE_ID_HERE&product_id=PRODUCT_ID_HERE&product_permalink=PERMALINK_HERE on the download page.
If you are still on our old file uploader view, you can use it to:
- Upload files from your computer
- Add files from other Gumroad products of yours. Just search for the files from other published products and click the checkbox to add them to the current product.
- Import a file from your Dropbox account
- Add links to external websites. We will show these links as separate files on the customer’s download page.
In the file uploader view, you can organize your files into folders by clicking "Add folder" and then drag your files into it. If you accidentally drag the wrong file into the folder, simply drag it to a lower position in the stack.
Versions can help you sell different sets of content, software access levels, or optional added services within the same product at different price points. Read this article to know all about setting up versions.
Publish your product
Once you're happy with everything, click Publish at the top of the page. Then head to your product’s share page and add it to a profile section to ensure customers can access it from your Profile page.
You can always update your product by clicking on the product from the Products dashboard.
