  • Allows you to share on social media or blogs a direct link to your product
  • Includes option to stamp watermarks on every page of PDF files, free of charge, to discourage buyers from illegally sharing the PDF
  • Integrated to email services providers

If you're planning on selling digital products, such as ebooks, software and other files, this app is best for you!

The best features of Payhip are:

1. PDF watermarks

You can sell as many e-books or PDFs as possible without worrying that your product will be shared around the internet.

On every page of the purchased PDF, the email address of the purchaser will be placed on the upper left corner. That is one way of discouraging digital pirating!

How to add watermarks:

Step 1. Go to “Account”  then click “Settings”

Step 2. In Account Settings, go to “Advanced Settings” tab

Step 3. Tick the box under “Protect your PDF files”

Step 4. Once done, click “Save settings” at the bottom of the page

Note: Stamping watermarks in PDFs is allowed only for files below 250mb.

2. Download limit

Another feature that works best for those planning to sell digital products is the limit on the number of downloads attempts per file.

How to set download limit:

Step 1. Go to “Account”  then click “Settings”

Step 2. In Account Settings, go to “Advanced Settings” tab

Step 3. Scroll to “Download Limit” and enter the maximum number of download attempts for each file

Step 4. Once done, click “Save settings” at the bottom of the page

Note: Setting the download limit applies to all products. You cannot choose which product to apply the limit.

3. Unique license key generation (for software products only)

As a software developer, you may want to add license key to your products.

Add your product in Payhip then go to the product's advanced options. In the Advanced Options, tick the box for “Generate unique license keys for each sale (only for software products).”

You can verify the license key thru the API.

How to get the API key:

Step 1. Go to “Account”  then click “Settings”

Step 2. In Account Settings, go to “Developer” tab

Step 3. Get the API in the “Your API Key” field.

Note: You can also generate a new API key by clicking the “Generate” button

4. Share and embed product

You can embed Payhip either directly to your website or use its storefront to sell your products.

If you want to use social media to market your product, Payhip allows you to share your product directly to your Facebook or Twitter account. You can also copy your product page link to post in other sites.

Or you can also embed in your website the product either using a buy button or a product page.

Payhip is fantastic. The interface is simple, the integration easy and the customer service has been top notch. I’m really glad I chose Payhip and will continue to do so in the future.

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!

I discovered Payhip at a very difficult time. EU VAT had been introduced in and my business was too small to deal with the complications it brought along. I had tried work arounds that caused more problems than they solved and was almost ready to throw in the towel. Payhip solved all of these problems and is also surprisingly easy to use. Not only do they provide an instant download solution, they deal with the EU VAT and their customer service is second to none. The new integrated shopping basket provides a one stop buying experience, keeping customers on the website instead of sending them else where.

I started using Payhip as a way to grow my subscriber list by giving away free design resources. I set up my account for free a few months now and I've already added an extra 3,400 subscribers to my email list. Payhip is by far the best way to release digital design resources for free, while growing your subscriber list. Your items are super easy to embed into your existing website, and once you've built your own following it becomes very easy to promote new and paid products to your customers without leaving Payhip. They've made the system incredibly slick and smooth, meaning it's a joy to use both as a creator and a customer. I can see myself happily using Payhip for many years to come.
