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!

What are templates?

Templates are pre-created documents, files, patterns, website themes, and more that can be used as the basis for a unique creation. They're a useful starting point for people who don't want to create something completely from scratch. Many different types of software allow you to create templates: Canva templates are especially popular.

How can I sell templates?

It's very easy (and cheap) to sell templates through Payhip. Simply sign up for an account, which is free, then create a product for each template (or set of templates) you want to sell. Upload your template files or create a PDF with instructions on how to access the template online, and upload that instead. You can then set a price and start selling your templates, either through your free Payhip store or through your own website. You don't need to pay anything to Payhip except a small (5%) transaction fee.

Is it legal to sell Canva templates?

Yes, it's legal to sell Canva templates, but you do need to make sure you're sticking to Canva's Content License Agreement. You can't generally re-sell templates that are based on Canva's own templates. You should also avoid using pro content in your template, as this isn't generally licensed for re-sale: use free content or create your own images and elements instead.

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.

How can I contact you

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

Can I make money selling templates?

There's definitely good money to be made by selling templates, with plenty of demand for these, particularly from small online businesses. Some designers create templates for a living whereas others sell templates for a side income - perhaps making templates based on files they've already created for their own use.

Is selling website templates profitable?

Selling website templates can potentially be very profitable, as you have few upfront costs. Some of the tools used to create templates are free or relatively cheap, and you can easily create as many templates as you want. However, there are a lot of different templates already out there for sale, so you may find that you're entering a very crowded marketplace. To make good money from your templates, you'll need to find a way to make them stand out.

Where can I sell templates?

There are lots of different online marketplaces where you can sell templates. However, you may find these keep a hefty cut of your earnings. It can also be hard for your templates to stand out in a busy marketplace - and if your templates do start to earn well, your income is at risk if the marketplace shuts down or stops offering that type of template. A good alternative is to sell your templates from your own Payhip store or through your own website.
