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.
