SamCart vs. Gumroad

Gumroad has a lack of customizable design features and innovative payment processing, yet they still take a significant cut of creator profits. At SamCart, you’ll never pay a fee and we’ll never take money you rightfully deserve.


Here’s where SamCart is a better choice for creators than Gumroad

When compared to SamCart, Gumroad falls short in customization, design features, payment processing… Not to mention, their fees take a serious cut from creators' profits.
You can create pages quickly using Gumroad’s templates, but you have fewer options than SamCart offers

You can’t edit every section of your page or customize your page with your personalized branding like you can on SamCart with our Drag & Drop Page Builder.

You don’t have a monthly fee but Gumroad will take 10% of your profits

SamCart charges a monthly fee but doesn’t take a percentage of your sales, keeping your profits in your pockets and your pockets only.

You can receive payments from PayPal but not Stripe

SamCart offers payment processing from both PayPal and Stripe as well as our own proprietary payment processor, SamPay, letting you choose the right payment process for your business.

You can test pages before publication but you don’t have A/B testing capabilities

SamCart offers A/B testing on every page you create, allowing you to easily discover ways to increase conversion rates.

You can email the Gumroad Customer Support team but you might have to wait a while for a reply

SamCart offers live chat during business hours and always replies to emails within 24 hours, saving you time when you have a quick question for our in-house eCommerce experts. Former Gumroad customers note that support is slow to come.
