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!

How can I sell my documentary?

Use platforms like Payhip that are free and only charge 5% when you make a sale. You can even set up memberships so your viewers can subscribe to your documentary content on a regular basis.

Where can I sell my documentaries online?

You can sell your documentary directly to viewers through your website using Payhip. It's completely free! This allows you to have more control over your distribution and pricing, and you can earn a larger percentage of the revenue from each sale. You can also try submitting your documentary to film festivals, or monetize through streaming platforms like Youtube.

Can you sell a documentary to Netflix?

Yes, you can sell a documentary to Netflix, albeit the process won't be easy. You'll need to work with a licensed agent, producer, attorney, manager, or industry executive who already has a relationship with the streaming platform.

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

Do documentaries make any money?

Yes, successful documentaries can still generate revenue through distribution deals, streaming royalties, and other licensing agreements. Additionally, some documentaries may have the potential for a theatrical release or broadcast on television, which can lead to more exposure and revenue opportunities. On a smaller scale, you can even monetize your documentaries through Youtube.
