Gumroad announces a Premium Service
Gumroad is going to start offering some expanded functionality on a subscription basis. The monthly fee starts at $10 per month for publishers with fewer than 1,000 customers, and rises based on the number of customers. Some Gumroad features will be limited unless you upgrade your account. From their press release:
We are launching a suite of tools that will let you turn Gumroad into the core of your creative business. It will cost a monthly fee, starting at $10 a month. It is entirely optional* — we believe it will add a tremendous amount of sustainable, recurring value to your life and hope you opt-in.
Here’s an analysis of their new offering.
