June 11th, 2021 | Stripe tax
Earlier this month, I decided to take the leap and go away from Gumroad and go to Stripe. I did it because I’m paranoid and afraid of platform risk. And although it was far more complex to calculate taxes with Stripe, it was a battle I was willing to fight in order to own my subscribers. Yesterday, two things I saw validating my decision in my mind. Number one, I saw one person lose all of his products from Gumroad without any explanation. Number two, I saw that Stripe launched Stripe Tax - an easy way to calculate and remit taxes globally. The whole world has been waiting for this feature for years. And at last, it’s here.
