About Gumroad

We believe every creator should be able to earn a living doing what they love.

Gumroad enables creatives to sell directly to their audience — so that they can make a living doing what they love.

Writers, designers, game developers, musicians, artists, and filmmakers use Gumroad to earn money off of their creative efforts.

Our story

In 2011, Pinterest designer Sahil Lavingia wanted to sell an icon he had made directly to his audience. But it was too difficult. Why setup a storefront? Just share a link–customers can click, pay, download. A weekend later, Gumroad was live.

A lot more has happened since then, but we won't bore you. If you're curious, you can read all about it on Sahil's website.

One more thing...

We have a lot in common with our creators: we also earn a living doing what we love. But we are different from many other companies.

We're profitable.

We are focused on improving our product in a sustainable way. We even share our numbers, so that others can learn how to run a creator-focused business.

We work differently.

Today, working at Gumroad resembles working on an open source project like Rails. Except it’s neither open source, nor unpaid.

It's been a while since April 2011. But rest assured, we're just getting started. Want to follow along?
