I absolutely love Payhip, it's such a user-friendly platform that literally anyone can use. Having launched my first ever eBook with Payhip, everything has gone by a breeze, I couldn't be happier with how easy it is.

We needed a company that handled VAT of the eBooks we sell. After a little research, we found Payhip to be the best fit. We're now using Payhip. We love the way they handle VAT and are easy to work with!

What are animations?

Animations are videos created by using a sequence of still images to create the illusion of movement. In the past, traditional animation was drawn or painted by hand: today, most animated films and series are made using computer-generated images. Animations can be anything from very short intro clips of a few seconds up to full-length animated movies and TV series.

How much do animations sell for?

The cost of animations varies widely, depending on the complexity and length of the animation. You could be charging anything from $100 to $20,000 per minute of completed animation, if you're selling to a single client. If you're selling your animations as stock footage, they'll be a lot cheaper. If you're selling to a viewing audience, they'll be cheaper still - but you'll be able to potentially sell many more copies.

How do I price animations?

The easiest way to price your animations is to look at what other animators are charging for similar products. If you're just starting out, you may want to undercut the market to gain some sales, experience, and testimonials. If you're a highly experienced animator, you could charge above the average for your premium animations.

How do I start an animation business?

Starting an animation business is much like starting any other business. You'll want to create a clear business plan that details how you will earn money. You'll also need to consider any startup costs, such as the cost of specialist animation software. It's important to also think about how you'll market your business and get customers.

Is there a storage limit?

No, we have no storage or bandwidth limits. We only have a 5GB per file limit. If you really need more than 5GB per file, then get in touch.

Can I cancel my account at anytime

Absolutely, you'll be able to cancel your account whenever you'd like if you decide we're not for you.

How can I contact you

Just shoot us an email at or reach out to us on Twitter. We'd love to chat!

How can I sell animations?

If you want to sell your animations directly to viewers, or sell stock animation to video creators, then it's easy to do so using Payhip. Simply sign up for a (free) Payhip account, create a product, upload your video files to the product, and start selling. Payhip gives you a free online storefront, or you can sell your animations on your own website if you prefer.

Can I make money from animations?

Yes, you can make money from animations. However, there can be a steep learning curve between starting to experiment with animations and producing work that's high enough quality to sell. The average animator makes around $70,000 per year in the USA, though freelance animators may find that it takes quite some time to work up to this level.

How can I market my animation?

There are lots of different ways you could market your animation, depending on your target audience. If you're selling completed downloadable or streaming animation direct to viewers, then you might produce trailers to promote your series on YouTube and social media. If you're selling animation to companies for use in their videos, you could market through testimonials and by encouraging word-of-mouth referrals.
