What are Excel templates?
Excel templates are special types of Excel files. Essentially, they're a pre-designed template that you can then use to create new spreadsheets using the same formatting and predefined formulas. Sometimes, a template is a single worksheet; sometimes, it's a full workbook (multiple worksheets).
Is it legal to sell Excel templates?
Yes, it's legal to sell Excel templates and Excel spreadsheets, so long as they are templates you've created yourself. You can't resell the Excel software, however. If you created the template while working for an employer, or for a freelance client, then they may have the rights to that template - so you'd need to get their permission before selling it.
Is there a market for Excel templates?
Yes, there is a good market for Excel templates. Most Excel templates are bought by B2B customers, but you may also find that there's a B2C market for certain types of templates, such as templates to track personal finances. You may also want to consider making variations of your templates that work in Google Sheets, as some of your audience may not use Excel.
How do I price my Excel templates?
It's up to you what to charge for your Excel templates. Depending on the complexity of the template, you might be charging anything from a couple of dollars for a simple budget tracker up to $50+ for more complex templates. To work out the right price for your Excel template, have a look at what similar templates are selling for.
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.

To create an Excel template, simply create your workbook as normal, then save it as a template. Go to File → Options → Save then under “Save workbooks” you'll need to enter the path to the personal templates location. Microsoft has instructions on how to do this here. If you prefer, you could also simply sell the workbook itself, and instruct users to create copies if they want to use it multiple times.
