What is Gumroad Day?
It's our birthday! Gumroad first went live on April 4, 2011, and we celebrate that day by doing more of what we love: Help creators earn a living doing what they love!
We're turning 10 this year and we'll be celebrating it by having a NO-FEE day on Wednesday, April 7, 2021. That means for every sale you make with Gumroad on April 7, 2021 — 100% of that goes in your pocket!
No credit card fees.
No PayPal fees.
No Discover fees.
No fees whatsoever!
How is the no-fee part implemented?
When you start making sales on April 7th, you will see the fees as usual on the Balance Page. That's not because we forgot about Gumroad Day, but because instead of not collecting fees in the first place, we credit it all back to you about a week or two later. We wait a few days for any refunds or disputes (shudder) for that day's sale to accumulate, and then do a single credit per creator.
We'll send you an email once all the fees has been credited back. It'll look something like this:
Another quirk to be aware of: The fee waiver will be for all sales on April 7, 2021 from 00:00hrs to 23:59hrs Eastern Time (ET) — which might be different than the time-zone set in your Gumroad account.
Spread the word
The only thing you need to do from your end to take full advantage of Gumroad Day is to sell! Reach out to your audience well ahead of time, roll out offers, use the hashtag #GumroadDay on social media, and just do what you do the best.
