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!

Frequently asked questions

Useful things to know from our helpful customer support team

What file formats do you support?

We support ALL file formats. You can upload any file type with any extension to Payhip.

Can I cancel my account at anytime

Can I make money with cartoons?

Yes, you can make money with cartoons – though it could take a while to build up to making a living from them. You might want to build up an audience for your cartoons online, perhaps through a blog or social media. You could then consider selling prints, or physical items with your cartoons on them. Of course, you can also sell your cartoons themselves, perhaps self-publishing a collection of exclusive cartoons and selling it on Payhip.

Can I sell items with cartoons on them?

So long as the cartoons are original ones that you created, yes, you can sell items with cartoons on them. You can’t take someone else’s cartoons and use them on your own items, unless those cartoons are out of copyright. With your own cartoons, or generic cartoon-style designs that you’ve drawn, you can create any items you like. T-shirts, notebooks, baseball caps, mugs, and water bottles are all popular options.

How much are cartoonists paid?

Cartoonists’ pay varies wildly, as some cartoonists will be employed full-time creating cartoon art for a company, whereas others will be self-employed or creating their own brand. On average, syndicated cartoonists in the USA earn around $45,000 per year – though this could vary from as little as $30,000 or less to as much as $80,000 or more.

Where can I sell my cartoons?

You can either sell your cartoons directly to your readership, through an online store, or you could sell your cartoons to a publisher or publication. Some cartoonists have their work syndicated, which means that a syndicate takes on their work and distributes it through a large number of newspapers in the USA.

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.

What are cartoons?

A cartoon is normally a line drawing, sometimes colored. Cartoons in newspapers are often political in nature, but there are also lots of other cartoons – such as humorous illustrations with captions, comic strip cartoons, greetings card cartoons, caricatures, and many more. Animated TV shows for children are also often referred to as cartoons.

How can I sell cartoons?

You can sell collections of your cartoons in both digital and physical form using Payhip. Simply create a Payhip account, log in, add a new product, upload your cartoons (probably as a PDF or EPUB file), then set a price. Payhip will give you a free online store – or alternatively, you can sell your cartoons from your own website. You don’t need to pay a monthly fee: you just pay Payhip a 5% commission when your cartoons sell.

Is there a market for cartoons?

Yes, there is a market for cartoons. Many people enjoy webcomics and other online cartoons, and plenty of newspapers publish daily cartoons. You’ll also find cartoon strips syndicated across multiple publications. Cartoonists can sell collections of their own work, or products based on their work, directly to an audience by using tools such as Payhip.
