Make money for every sale of one of our products!
By becoming a GZS Affiliate, you can earn up to 50% from each sale of one of our products via a link you've promoted. The more sold, the more money you make... just for sharing links!
Here's how you do it!
GZS is a great place for you to make some side income, even if you’re not actively creating your own products.
As an affiliate on GZS, you can promote our work and get paid. Here’s how!
Step 1: Create a Gumroad account
Go to www.gumroad.com/login and create an account. We’ll send you an email to verify the account—make sure you verify it through the link in that email.
Fill out your payout settings.
You do not need to get an upgraded account if you are an affiliate—a free Gumroad account is perfect.
You do not have to create a product if you plan on only serving as an affiliate.
Changing your login email address, payout settings, username, or social links does not affect your affiliate link — you do not need to notify Gumroad or the creator of your products, or ask for a new affiliate link.

Make sure you tell me how you plan to promote! (I don't like spamming links at people, so please be thoughtful with sharing your links.)
Step 3: Get your link(s)
When I add you as an affiliate, you’ll get an email. It breaks down everything about your affiliation with me, from how much you’ll be credited for each sale, and all of your affiliate links.
Step 4: Share your links!
That’s all! Just share the links that we’ve included in your email. You do not need to create any Gumroad products or advertise a Gumroad link. Just share those links however you wish. I recommend carrd.co. It's what I use for joeforrest.com and many other landing pages.
The only way we can credit you for your affiliate sales is if you share the links in the email we send you. Why?
EX: https://gumroad.com/l/product is a product link. This is the link that Gumroad creators need to be sharing.
EX: https://gumroad.com/a/1234567 is an affiliate link. THIS is the link that you, the affiliate, needs to be sharing.
A quick way to tell if you’re sharing the right link is to look for the /a/ in it. That /a/ tells Gumroad’s big brain that this is an affiliate link, and the unique number after the /a/ tells us that this is your affiliate link.
Other reasons you might not be credited for a sale:
- The customer’s web browser does not accept “cookies.” Our affiliate feature can only work if a browser accepts cookies.
- The sale was refunded.
- The customer did not buy the product within 30 days of clicking your link. Our cookies expire after 30 days.
- The customer clicked a different affiliate’s link after they clicked yours and bought the product.
How to navigate the Gumroad dashboard
Although we hope to build it out in the future, we do not have a nice fancy dashboard for affiliates yet. The only pages that will apply to you are your payout settings page, and your balance page
As a Gumroad affiliate, you cannot see any sales on the iOS Gumroad Dashboard app.
That means there is not a place for you to track your sales or see analytics on how your links are being shared. If you wish to get detailed insights into how your links are performing, you can use a service like bit.ly and use the analytics tools they offer.
