Customizing Your Product
Adding a custom URL
We allow you to customize your products' URLs (for example, changing annagreen.gumroad.com/l/fxvPI to annagreen.gumroad.com/l/poetrytee) by simply typing over the grey text in the box next to the Publish and Save changes buttons.
You can change this link at any time, and the default link provided by Gumroad (fxvPI, in this case) will always work. Click Save changes to make your product's URL go live.
Set a thumbnail for your product
You can have a distinct image to be your product's thumbnail. These will show up on customer libraries (web and mobile), Gumroad Discover, and–most importantly–your profile page! This way you can have a separate cover image that sells your product effectively and have a thumbnail that represents it well in a browsing context. Yay!
Limit product sales
You can limit total sales of a product to a certain amount (for example, if you only want to sell a thousand copies of your book) under the Settings box in the Product tab.
You can sell multiple versions of one product from a single page (for example, T-shirt sizes, colors, or different filetypes). Add versions in the Edit tab of your product under the Versions box.
Versions add a click-down menu onto your payment form that requires your customers to select an option before they purchase.
Add discount codes for your product in the Checkout tab. You can send the code directly to your customers or send them a URL that automatically includes the discount (to find this URL, click the Share button in the text box).
Discount codes can be dollar amount-based or percentage-based. Click the $ or % icons in the Amount off box to toggle between the two. You can also limit your code's usage if you choose (for example, so that the first 50 customers get $10 off). You can also use discount codes to offer free products.
Many Gumroad creators who sell software use our license key feature to issue different levels of access to specific customers. Our licensing setup makes it easy for you to:
- Create different levels of licenses for your software (team vs. individual)
- Authenticate, verify, and revoke licenses at your discretion
- Issue and reissue licenses to customers
To turn on the license key feature, click the Generate a unique license key per sale toggle under the Settings box on the Edit tab.
To collect additional information from your customers, add custom fields in the Checkout tab under Payment form. Under Additional fields, add the placeholder text for the information you want to collect (for example, Phone number, Github username, etc.) and choose whether the field is optional or required. To add more fields, click Add custom field.
Add a unique-to-customer stamp to your work with PDF stamping. For any PDF on Gumroad, you can turn on PDF stamping by clicking the Stamp PDFs with the buyer's information checkbox in the Content section of the Product tab after you've uploaded your PDF.
The PDF stamp will add the buyer's email address and a special graphic to the first page of your PDF.
To see how it'll look on your own product, go to its page and do a test purchase (you won't be charged) — you'll see your product the same way your future customers will.
Stream Only & Subtitles
Gumroad's stream only feature prohibits customers from downloading your video product. After uploading a video file, select the Stream only checkbox to prevent customers from downloading video files. You can also choose to upload subtitle files to any video file by clicking the CC button next to the file name.
