About us

Fourthwall gives creators the freedom to focus on creating.

We enable creators (YouTubers, Instagrammers, Podcasters, etc. -- anyone with a large online audience) to make money by opening beautiful, fully customized online shops where they can sell merchandise, accept donations, and offer memberships. Our mission is to make the money-making side of content creation easy and let creators focus on what matters: Creating great content and interacting with their fans.

Our culture is built around the philosophy of putting our customers, the creators, first. If you are talented, hardworking, and love helping others, we would love to talk to you about joining our team!

Founded by Will Baumann (prev. CEO/founder of SmartReceipts + Amazon), Walker Williams (prev. co-founder/CEO of Teespring), and Eli Valentin (prev. KPMG), Fourthwall is backed by over $17MM in funding from Initialized (Alexis Ohanian) and Lightspeed (Jana Messerschmidt).
