So, you’ve made a sale - yay for you! Money feels good, right? But there’s lots to do. While Gumroad takes care of delivering your digital wares, there’s probably a million other things you need to do - the admin fluff that keeps your business running.
Luckily Gumroad integrates with Zapier - which means you have the ability to connect with the 3,000+ other apps that Zapier has in its ecosystem. We should know, we sell our mentoring course via Gumroad.
To help inspire you, here’s 4 things you can automate after your sale to save your time and effort.

Existing customers tend to buy again - if they remember you - and adding them to your mailing list is a great way to do just that.
We use Mailerlite for ours (but Zapier supports many others). It’s really easy to create a zap that adds a new subscriber whenever there is a purchase in Gumroad.
If you want to keep your accountant happy, then use Zapier to create an invoice in your bookkeeping app, so you can later reconcile the payment against it - and in case your customer needs a copy for their records.
We use Xero (again Zapier covers other apps as well), and set up a zap that creates an invoice after every sale.
It’s important to know what your customers think - especially if you’re keen to improve your business for the future.
There are various apps that help you ask for and manage feedback from customers. Combining Zapier with Trustpilot, for example, you can send out an invitation for feedback immediately after a sale - strike while the customer is excited!
Teams love to know when things are going well - and if your team hangs out in Slack like most do, then you can use Zapier to send them a message when a new sale goes through.
Just think about what fields from the sale you want your team to see (product name and sale amount, probably) and map it into the message you send.
