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 beats?

The term “beats” can mean several different things in music, but in rap music, “beats” are the instrumental tracks - the song minus the vocal track. They can also be referred to as “musical compositions”. Many rap musicians (or “producers”) write beats, without a vocal track, and then look for an artist to sell those beats to.

Is selling beats online profitable?

Selling beats online can definitely be profitable - especially if you already have all the recording equipment you need. If you enjoy creating beats, selling them online can help support your hobby or could even become a new career. When you use Payhip, you won't have overheads to worry about. You get a free account and a free online store: you just pay a small 5% transaction fee on each sale.

Can I sell beats on Payhip?

Yes, you can easily sell beats on Payhip. With Payhip, you can use any file format, so you can use whatever type of audio file you like. Ideally, you'll want to use a high-quality, uncompressed format such as .wav. There's a limit of 5GB per file, but that should be more than enough for even large .wav files. You could also supply your beat in .mp3 format and other formats.

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.

Do you offer charity discounts

For sure, we love to support great causes of all kinds so please get in touch with us.

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 beats?

You can sell beats through Payhip, by creating a digital product, uploading your beats file, and setting your price. Your product can then be sold through Payhip itself - you'll have a dedicated online store - or through your own website. The hardest part is marketing your beat: you might want to share a sample or even a few free beats with any rapper communities that you belong to.

How much can a beat sell for?

Beats can sell for almost anything, with non-exclusive beats often selling for around $25 - $35. If you create exclusive beats (ones that you only sell once) then you could charge lots more, potentially hundreds or even thousands of dollars. When you're deciding how to price your beats, take a look at similar compositions by other producers and see what they're charging.

How do I find artists to sell beats to?

If you want to sell beats to individual artists, it can take time to build up your creative network. A good place to begin is with any online rap and hip-hop groups you belong to. Show an interest in artists' work, and try to build up a relationship. Then, when you share a sample of your latest beat, you'll have a group of people who already know you and like you - and they'll be much more willing to buy from you.
