Your Gumroad username is used for your creator profile - your profile URL will be <username>.gumroad.com. This page is where your audience can view and purchase all your products, posts, and follow you by providing their email IDs.
The email address you provide here is used to log in to Gumroad, and also receive sales notifications and receipts from any Gumroad products you buy.
You can customize notifications you wish to receive via email or push notifications through the Gumroad Dashboard app. Don't want to receive email notifications for every $0 purchase? No problem, toggle off notifications for "Free downloads!"
Your support email is the email address displayed on your customers' receipts. If left blank, your customers’ replies will go to the email provided in the "User details" section above.
Language and time zone
Choosing a language in your settings only affects what you see in your creator dashboard. Gumroad automatically changes to the default language of your customer's browser. So, if your customer’s browser defaults to French, they will see the payment form in French.
This does not mean your product description, product's name, receipt text, or any updates you send out will be translated to French. Anything you type into Gumroad will stay as it is. If you want to create a product in French, you will have to give it a French title, a French description, a French receipt, etc. Or, as the French would say, "etc. etc. (while holding a cigarette)"
The time zone you select will also affect your sales and following dashboards.
The Sell in… drop down menu allows you to choose the default currency for all of your products. This is purely aesthetic. Gumroad charges your audience in USD at the equivalent exchange rate at the time of purchase. For more information on how we handle currencies, check out this article.
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$.
If you live in the United States and know that you need to remit sales tax in certain states, then choose those states here.
Products purchased via Discover will be subject to an additional 10% fee over our usual 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 via the Gumroad Library, or through any kind of referral aspect of the Discover feature, their purchase will be taxed the Discover fees.
Your payout page is where you add the information that allows you to get paid from the products you sell on Gumroad. If you live in any of our direct-deposit countries, you'll need to fill out identity verification information for us to pay you via direct deposit. If you live outside those countries, you can only be paid out via PayPal.
You can read more about the payouts settings page here.
