Your profile page is your showcase, your gallery. It houses all the items you’re selling on Gumroad, so it only makes sense that your fans be able to purchase right from there. Now they can! It’s like buying from the museum, without having to stop in the gift shop.
Enabling purchases from the profile page simplifies the buying process and eliminates a step for your fans, as they no longer need to click through to the product page. Now, instead of driving fans to a unique product page, you can send people to your profile page where they can see everything you’re selling, and hopefully buy more than just one product!
If you’d like a profile, but haven’t set one up yet, visit your settings page, add a username, and then hit “Update account details”. Now your fans can visit gumroad.com/YourUsername to see all of your products
If for any reason you don’t want a product to show on your profile page, you can disable it from showing up by clicking ‘More Options’ and un-checking ‘Visible on profile page’.
We’re extremely excited about buying from profile pages, and believe that the improved simplicity will lead to increased sales of more of your products. For additional information on profile pages, please see our guide to reaching your audience. As always, we love hearing your feedback, which you can send here.
