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!

Is selling notes online legal?

In most cases, it's legal to sell your study notes online. However, you should check whether your institution has any rules that would prohibit you from selling your notes – or even sharing them online for free. Some universities will take disciplinary action against students caught selling their study notes.

Can I get in trouble for sharing my notes?

Some universities prohibit students from sharing class notes, aiming to protect faculty members' professional reputations - inaccurate or low-quality notes could be attributed to their classes by a student. Check your university's policies to see whether selling class notes is prohibited.

How do I price my study notes?

It's up to you what you want to charge for your study notes. Most likely, you'll be pricing your notes somewhere between $5 and $25 per document, depending on its length and scope. Charging too much will make your notes unaffordable for most students - but charging too little could make students think your notes are low-quality.

How can I contact you

Just shoot us an email at or reach out to us on Twitter. We'd love to chat!

Is there a storage limit?

No, we have no storage or bandwidth limits. We only have a 5GB per file limit.

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 sell notes?

You can sell your study notes online using Payhip. Simply format your notes as a .pdf then create a product in Payhip and set your price. You can then sell your notes through your own website, if you have one, or through your free Payhip store. You'll want to consider how best to market your study notes, perhaps through student groups on social media.

How can I earn money with my notes?

You can make money by selling copies of your class notes online. Other students studying the same or similar courses might well be willing to pay for your notes, especially if you take the time to make your notes as useful as possible. (For instance, you could include subheadings, bullet points, and academic references.) You could also potentially make money by taking notes for someone else, most likely as a student support “note taker” for someone with a disability or difficulty that makes it hard for them to write notes during class.

Who owns the copyright on my study notes?

Your study notes are automatically copyrighted to you, as you wrote them. Even if they include ideas and facts taught to you by a professor or teacher, the notes themselves are copyright to you - not the person teaching you. If your notes are based on a textbook, be careful not to quote large chunks of the text. Small portions can normally be quoted under “fair use” copyright laws.
