What's a great alternative to Gumroad these days?

8 replies
For selling membership/digital products, Gumroad still seems to be the most attractive option.

It's the simplest, does what it has to do, allows me to focus on the content rather than the delivery, and has tons of integrations...

But I'm not too sure about its future... The app hasn't evolved for a while now and I understand that their support is understaffed.

Higher end alternatives would be ClickFunnels, WithCoach, Kajabi, etc... But they're too complicated and too expensive for my needs.

I also try to stay away from stitching Wordpress plugins as much as possible. Would like to focus on the content, not on servers, security, and fixing plugin conflicts.

The most apples to apples alternatives that I found are Sellfy, Selz, and SendOwl...

With those alternatives, Gumroad still appears to be the more compelling option based on integrations, price, and simplicity.


What are your thoughts on the best simple ecommerce platform for info products these days?

    You could look at Teachable or Udemy?

      Yes, considering the likes of Teachable and Skillshare too... while I'm adding my own branded platform to the mix. I.e. Places where the buyers are *my* customers, not of the marketplace.

      I'd group the likes of Teachable, Kajabi, and Thinkific together... they're bigger investments. More robust and more expensive.

      Gumroad, GetDPD, etc are smaller solutions that focus on simplicity... right now, that's the kind of thing I'm looking for

      Thanks Robin.

      I checked it out in the past... though this product category is very 'timely'... rendering many options highly outdated. I.e. products have changed drastically or are defunct

    https://www.happeno.com/ is a great alternative to Gumroad. + they don't charge any annoying fees. You just have to buy more upload quota.
