Podia vs. Gumroad: What's right for me?

Great question! We obviously think we’re pretty great, but here’s an honest answer:

Both platforms allow you to sell digital downloads. Both give you landing pages, affiliate marketing, and helpful selling features like coupons and payment plans.

But while Gumroad is digital download platform, Podia is an all-in-one platform that replaces many tools for your business, including your website builder, email marketing platform, online course platform, membership hosting platform, live chat tool, and much more.

The best platform choice comes down to what’s most important for you.

If you’re looking for an all-in-one platform that makes it simple to run your online business in one place, has world-class customer service, and is affordable whether you’re just starting out or growing fast, then we built Podia just for you.

If you want to sell a single downloadable file and would rather pay commissions than a flat monthly fee, then Gumroad might be best for you.

Another thing to consider is where you expect your business to be a few months from today. If you’re just starting out, Gumroad’s free plan is cheaper than Podia’s $39/mo Mover plan. However, with Gumroad’s 5% transaction fee, their plan will get more expensive as soon as you begin making more than $195 per month in sales. Plus, you’ll need to pay for additional tools for email marketing and site hosting, which could cost another several hundred dollars per year. Meanwhile, Podia’s Mover plan, which includes all of our digital download selling features (plus online courses, email marketing, a site builder, and more) costs only $39/mo. And when you’re ready to grow your business by adding memberships, Zoom webinars, a blog, third-party code, and offsite buy buttons, our premium plan (Shaker) is just $79/mo.
