It’s Sellfy And Gumroad Out the Gate
It’s on! There’s a race to create a marketplace for direct sale and purchase of digital products. Two companies have sprinted ahead, Sellfy and Gumroad. The stakes raised considerably with the news that two Skype alumni–Toivo Annus (co-founder and technical lead) and Sten Tamkivi (head of Skype’s Estonia office) have made angel investments in Sellfy. Sorry, no figures. The Latvian startup has kept tight-lipped. Co-founder and CEO Maris Dagis claims the company has been doubling its monthly revenue of late, which helped attract additional investments.
