Artists, writers and creators of all kinds rely on Gumroad to sell digital goods online. It’s an incredibly easy-to-use ecommerce app—in minutes you can begin selling—and on top of that, it lets you sell on the sites where you find your audience. Post a link to Twitter, for example, and two clicks later a follower can be buying your new ebook.

Gumroad’s great toolset grows today as it’s now part of the Zapier automation platform.

  • Bands can now sell an album and automatically add a purchaser’s email address to a list in MailChimp, AWeber or another popular email marketing system.
  • Authors can now sell an ebook and automatically create a task in Asana or another project management tool to follow up with the purchaser for a testimonial.
  • Artists can now automatically send an email to alert their closest fans that they've put a new product up for sale.

These are just some of the possibilities, because with 250-plus connected services, the list is long. Visit the Gumroad Zapbook page to see more.
