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!

Frequently asked questions

Useful things to know from our helpful customer support team

When do I get paid?

We will deposit your sales to you immediately after a transaction has been completed. All payments are sent to your connected PayPal or Stripe account.

What file formats do you support?

We support ALL file formats. You can upload any file type with any extension to Payhip.

Can I cancel my account at anytime

Absolutely, you'll be able to cancel your account whenever you'd like if you decide we're not for you.

How can I sell videos?

You can sell videos on Payhip by creating an account, uploading your zipped video files, and selling them as products. Alternatively, you can create an online course with Payhip and upload videos for your course (note there’s a small extra charge if you want Payhip to host your videos for this). You could even use the Memberships feature to take recurring payments for streaming videos.

Should I sell streaming videos or downloads?

It’s important to be clear (before you start creating videos) whether you plan to sell your content through a streaming service or as downloads. With streaming videos, you’re selling access to watch those videos on-demand, usually for a certain period of time (e.g. one month). With downloadable videos, you’re selling the video files themselves, for people to store on their device and watch at any time.

How do I make money with videos?

You can make money in a variety of ways by selling videos online. You might create videos as part of an online course and get paid for the course, both when you launch it and on an ongoing basis. You could make stock video clips that can be sold over and over again, getting paid a small amount each time. You could produce an online show that you sell through a streaming service and receive subscriptions.

How do I sell educational videos?

To sell educational videos, you need to think about how to present your videos as part of a coherent course or class. Packaging your videos in this way makes them easier to sell. You won’t necessarily need high production values, but you do need to make sure that all the information you present is clear and accurate. You may want to consider extras with your course, like live Q&A sessions, workbooks, or other bonus material.

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.

What platform is best for selling videos?

There are lots of different platforms you can use to sell videos online. If you’re selling streaming video, you will want to choose a platform that’s set up for this. For downloadable videos, Payhip is ideal as it gives you full control over your storefront – or you can even add Payhip checkout buttons to your own website for a seamless customer experience.

Can I sell videos on YouTube?

No, you can’t sell videos on YouTube. However, you can run ads on your YouTube videos and make money that way. As a rough rule of thumb, you can expect to receive around $3 - $5 in advertising revenue for every 1,000 video views. You could also offer free YouTube videos that you use to promote the premium videos that you sell.

How do you get paid for selling videos?

When customers buy your videos, they’ll either pay you directly or they’ll be purchasing from a streaming service or a third-party marketplace. You’ll get the most profit by selling directly, which you can do through tools like Payhip. To receive the money for videos sold through Payhip, you’ll need a PayPal or Stripe account.

Can I make a living selling video content?

Plenty of people do make a living selling video content – and there are a number of ways you might approach this. You might decide to opt for a recurring revenue model, where people sign up to receive regular videos. Another approach is to create multiple online courses, and run regular sales to promote them. As with any business, you’ll likely find that it takes some time to build up to the level of income you want.
