How can I pay for Gumroad products?
We accept the following payment methods:
- Visa (including Visa Electron)
- Diner's Club
We accept some debit cards, but do not support Bitcoin, Stripe, Skrill, animal pelts, or moon rocks as payment forms. Also, COMING SOON: We will start allowing payments via Apple Pay as well (tentative Q2-2021)!
We have seen instances of banks taking strong security measures (among them, cancellation) after debit cards were used on Gumroad. This is because banks typically have more strict rules regarding online purchases with debit cards, since debit cards do not offer chargeback protection. If you plan on using a debit card on Gumroad, it is a good idea to verify with your bank before you make your purchase.
Gift Cards and Prepaid Cards
We DO accept prepaid and gift cards. We love them. We think they're great and want to hug and kiss them all the time.
However, because these cards are often abused and used for fraud, the card companies that back them often DO NOT recognize or have not yet authorized Gumroad to process their cards, and thus they will prevent us from charging the card. At this point, it is unfortunately no longer surprising to us that prepaid card purchases fail, and we will tell you so with a dismissive blow of smoke from our gauloise if you inquire about it.
I mean, not really, but we'll look up the charge, find out the card provider has blocked it, and let you know this. You are probably safer sticking with your PayPal and credit card accounts.
