What are icons?
Icons are small, graphical representations of programs, files, or functions on your computer, phone, or other device. If you look at your phone screen, you'll see icons representing different applications. If you use a software program on your computer, you'll likely have different icons for functions like “save” and “print”. On social media, icons are used for features such as “like” or “share”.
How do I make icons?
There are a number of different software programs you can use to create your own icons. These include specialist software designed for icons, such as Softorbits Icon Maker or Junior Icon Editor, as well as more general graphic design programs, like Adobe Illustrator. You may want to try out a few different programs to see what you find easiest to work with: most will offer a free trial.
How can I make money as an icon designer?
Icon designers typically make money by selling sets of icons to multiple customers. However, you might also choose to make money on a freelance basis, providing custom sets of icons to individual clients. This means clients can easily commission specific icons, you can match icons to their brand, and no one else will be using those icons. For most icon designers, though, selling pre-made sets of icons can provide a more consistent income.
Can I sell icons on Payhip?
Yes, you can sell icons on Payhip - in fact, it's very simple and easy to do so. Simply save your icons in any format you want, then upload them to a new product in Payhip. You'll need to set a price for your product - and you should add an image that shows off your best icons from the set, too. Then, simply save your product and you're ready to sell.

How can I sell icons?
You can sell icons by first creating a set of icons, then uploading it to Payhip as part of a new product. You can direct customers to your (free) Payhip store, or you can sell your icons through your own website if you prefer. Marketing your icons can be tricky, especially with lots of competition out there, and you'll likely want to target web designers and app creators, as they'll frequently need icons for their projects.
Can I make money from selling icons?
Yes, you can make money selling icons. While it's technically possible to sell individual icons, the vast majority of icons are sold in collections or sets. This means people can use a set of similarly-styled icons on their website or app. Icon sets will usually cost anything from $10 to $100+, depending on the size and quality of the collection.
How do I price my icons?
It can be tricky to know what to charge for your icons. There's a lot of competition out there, so if you price your icons too high, you'll find that customers simply look elsewhere. If your prices are rock-bottom, though, you might put customers off, as they may fear your work is low-quality. Before settling on a price, take a look at similar icon collections and see what they're selling for.
How do I sell iPhone app icons?
Since the iOS 14 came out, with the option for custom icons on the home screen, some designers have made large amounts of money - with one creator of a monochrome icon set bringing in over $100,000 in less than a week. Just as with other icon collections, you will want your iPhone icons to have a distinct style. You may need to provide instructions with your icons to help users install them on their iPhones.
