Why creators are switching from Gumroad to SellApp.
Recently, Gumroad made the controversial decision to completely rebrand their design without communicating the intention to do so with most of their creators. To make matters worse, this decision was made live on arguably the most important eCommerce day of the year: Black Friday.
Many creators were left frustrated with how this decision was communicated, and given the unconventional design, it could also lead to fewer sales. This, however, is not the first time Gumroad has come short on behalf of their users. It's a repetitive pattern that has been going on for years, where creators plead for improvements and features but simply get ignored. Some examples:
- It is as yet not possible to get in direct touch with a human at Gumroad aside from sending an email. Many creators have experienced insulting and rude remarks from the person(s) responding to emails.
- Creators are not made aware of Gumroad's payout limitations until after they make a few sales, resulting in locked accounts with funds being withheld by Gumroad, hurting those in countries not supported by Gumroad.
- Gumroad's infrastructure and codebase was built over 10 years ago, with much of the code now not functioning correctly. This has translated in frustrated customers not receiving what they paid for.
Gumroad has been in operation for 10 years, and they've raised tens of millions of dollars in that time. Despite their abundance of time and resources, the product has seen little change for the better. It's not for nothing that Gumroad has a 2.2 score on TrustPilot at time of writing.
When reading this, you may wonder why the team over at Gumroad make the decisions they do. Long story short; they do so because they build for themselves and their particular use-cases. They expect creators on Gumroad to be exactly like they are and use the platform specifically like they do. If not, and you're a creator who's doing someting amazingly unconventional? That's your problem which you can go deal with by yourself.
