In May, PW reported on Gumroad's API that aimed to simplify online transactions. Indeed, the earlier release did move Gumroad towards its goal: "to democratize the ability to sell stuff online."

The Platform API removes the need for links and buyer accounts. Instead, an entire transaction occurs on the merchant's site.
