With more and more requests for a "Gumroad Alternative" filling up our support queue, we decided it was time to build out a proper Gumroad to Lemon Squeezy migration.
After the excitement of our latest release, we've been flooded with requests to help with migrations from other platforms.
Overall the process is pretty painless, and our migration process makes it relatively easy to make the switch.
Migrating from Gumroad to Lemon Squeezy
We've put together proper documentation when it comes to migrating from Gumroad. The good news is, we do most of the heavy lifting for you.
We have already successfully migrated several Gumroad accounts over to Lemon Squeezy. The entire process only takes a couple days and if you are looking to move, now is the time with our 0% transaction fee offer until the end of the year.
Please note: We currently support migrating your products, customers and license keys from Gumroad. However, there is no direct migration path for subscriptions from Gumroad to other platforms. At this time, the suggested workaround is to ask your existing subscription customers to cancel their subscriptions and set up a new subscription via your Lemon Squeezy store when their next billing cycle begins.
Once you've created a new account, it's time to start your migration process. Follow the steps with the Gumroad migration docs.
Once you're all ready to go, simply email us and we'll handle the rest. Easy peasy.
Why choose Lemon Squeezy over Gumroad?
For us, the answer is simple. Lemon Squeezy was born out of the frustration of what other platforms offered. For basic digital products, Gumroad provides that but when it comes to global tax compliance, customization, currency support, payment methods, flexible API, SaaS solutions, more payout options, etc. they fall short.
That's where Lemon Squeezy steps in. Here's how we stack up:
Our transaction fees simply beat Gumroad’s pricing when you're first starting out. We also have the ability to match or beat rates for more established accounts with volume discounts.
We have a wide range of payment options available, so buyers can use the payment method that is best for them. This ensures that everyone can buy from your store, regardless of where they live in the world. There's no additional transaction fees for using different payment methods, like PayPal. That's all included in one low transaction fee when you make a sale.
The product and team at Lemon Squeezy is dedicated to making the best platform to sell digital products. Simple as that. We do not focus on physical products.
This allows us to provide the best possible experience for both sellers and buyers. This focus sets us apart from Gumroad by constantly improving our platform to make it the best possible place for digital product sellers to market and interact with customers.
Lemon Squeezy provides everything Gumroad does with more features. From support for SaaS / software companies, sales tax compliance, integrated email marketing, and more.
Unlike Gumroad, you don't have to create your own PayPal account. With Lemon Squeezy, you can immediately start accepting PayPal payments, along with 16 other payment methods. You can also start charging prices in local currencies (not just in USD) and increase conversion rates internationally. Sales tax remittance coverage is lacking around the world with Gumroad, which will add further complexities, cost, and workload as you sell globally.
With the release of our new affiliate marketing features just around the corner, Lemon Squeezy will provide everything you need to generate traffic and sales for your online store.
0% transaction fees until 2023
If you're new here, we're currently offering 0% transaction fees from now until the end of the year.
We're excited for you to experience the features Lemon Squeezy has to offer. We understand that migrating your business across platforms requires some extra incentive, and personal care. We can’t wait to introduce you to the platform.
And it doesn't get much better than free - for a limited time.
