An Etsy Alternative Built for Digital Products

A digital storefront built for digital products

We designed Podia with digital — not physical — products in mind. Podia gives your customers a simple and beautiful experience with their own login, on-page delivery, a course viewer to watch videos and consume content online, account management and more.

“Podia is for Makers who get stuff done. Within 24 hours of discovering Podia, I transferred all my products over and haven’t looked back. Podia is the iPhone of online courses, memberships and digital downloads. Simple, easy and aesthetically beautiful, even a complete technophobe can use it. Thank you Podia team!”

Your customers are yours, not ours

Your customers — and their emails — are yours, not Podia’s. You own all of it, and you can build strong relationships with your customers by using Podia’s built-in email marketing platform.

"I have fallen in love with Podia - it's so much fun to use! The other thing I can't get over is the amazing team behind the technology. It's such a good feeling to know that support is there anytime I need it."
