So you think you’ve got what it takes to be a successful note seller?

Well, we totally agree 🙌

Step 1.

Register and give yourself a username, email and password. It’s that simple.

Step 2.

Upload a file of your scanned hand written notes or typed notes.

Upload a photo of the note to hint at content or your handwriting style.

+ Experiment with pricing: consider offering bundled lecture notes and exam study guides (more value) for higher prices .

Step 3.

If you want to upload notes for free, no Stripe account is required. To setup Stripe for paid notes: click on your username, then go to settings, then click ‘Connect with Stripe’.

Stripe refers to all users as ‘businesses’. If you’re an individual looking to earn money on the side, simply fill out the form and just be sure to select
‘individual, sole proprietor, or single-member LLC’.
