- Link to your Facebook or Twitter accounts
- Give yourself a "bio" and a profile photo
- Change your background color or upload an image (or video) to your background
Your follow page is a landing page that you can share with your followers to build your email list and start generating interest in your products.
Language and time zone
Choosing a language here only affects what you see in your creator dashboard. Gumroad will automatically change its forms to the default language of your customers' browsers, so if you want your product descriptions, titles, or receipt text to be in a specific language, you will have to type in that language manually.
This is the email address you use to log in to Gumroad. It also receives sales notifications as well as receipts from any Gumroad products you buy.
Your support email is the email address that will be displayed on your customers' receipts. If entered, your customers’ replies will go to this email instead of the one above.
The Sell in… drop down menu allows you to choose to the default currency for all of your products. This is purely aesthetic. Gumroad charges your audience in USD, at the equivalent exchange rate at time of purchase.
If you live in Australia, Canada, New Zealand, Singapore, Taiwan, or Hong Kong, please take note that the American Dollar is the only currency on Gumroad designated with the $ symbol. All other dollar currencies have their full currency indication on products. Thus, if you want to sell a product in Australian dollars, pick A$.
Because we charge in USD, some customers may incur international transaction fees, depending on the policies of their card providers. If this is the case, have them email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will reimburse them.
If you live in the United States and know that you need to remit sales tax in certain states, then choose those states here.
If you live in Australia, you will see a box to set the appropriate tax rate, applying GST to all sales made to your Australian customers. Enter your tax ID. This will show up in your customers' receipts.
If you have purchased a product on Gumroad in the past and selected the Keep on file box on your payment card, then your billing information will appear here. You can change your payment information at any time.
You can also upgrade your Gumroad account in this section.
Discover recommends your products to prospective customers that browse Gumroad at gumroad.com/discover.
Products purchased via Discover will be subject to an additional 10% fee. This applies even if the customer has purchased from you before. If they buy a product from you through the Gumroad Discover search, or through a receipt link, or through any kind of referral aspect of the Discover feature, their purchase will be taxed the Discover fees.
So, to clarify:
If you have a Gumroad premium account the fees would be 13.5% + $0.30 per sale made through Discover.
If you are using Gumroad for free the fees would be 18.5% + $0.30 per sale made through Discover.
To verify whether or not your account is premium, head to www.gumroad.com/settings/upgrade. If the page says "You're all set!" that means you have a premium account.
