Idea For Gumroad and other Services for Online Sales
So, in my last post here, I pointed out how I am running an experiment on Gumroad.
Here is the link again where you can buy a pdf of Danger.

Well, since I want to run some other experiments and some of them involve "digital products" that I create with other people, I go to thinking again... (I tend to do that on occasion...) Well, I have had thisidea before and may have even discussed it before but I had it again and decided to ping Gumroad with it:
I do quite a few project based collaborations. It would be very helpful
if when we put the results of such a collaboration on sale here at
gumroad if we could specify a payment split.
Product A - 50% to Person 1 and 50% to Person 2.
Product B - 50% to Person 1 and 30% to Person 2 and 20% to person 3.
there a current way to do this? If so, how? If not, what are the
chances of getting this feature implemented? I think many people would
find such a feature useful.
It would make ad hoc, project based collaborations so much cleaner from the creatives' end.
I got a semi-encouraging reply:
there isn’t a way to do this, besides doing it after the fact
(outside of Gumroad). It would be a cool feature that we’d love to
support one day."
Hopefully, one day soon they will implement this. I know I can't be the only person who would love to be able to make ad hoc collaborations so much easier to deal with online.
