The students can make money through the internet by selling the notes. Specifically, college students could earn extra cash by providing their helpful study guides to others.

Through this blog post, let me tell you how students can make money online by selling notes!

Notes are a great way to remember a significant amount of information! Do you agree?

An investment in creating the critical notes ensures a helping hand beside you that can guarantee the quick recall of a topic before a class test, revision session, a semester examination, or anytime you need to.

Science has often stressed the importance of writing for better memory. The conventional life hack says, “Writing it once equals reading it seven times!”

I am pretty sure that you must be having your set of notes, and you’ve also gathered a set of note-taking techniques in the past years through practice so that you can convert any complicated piece of information to a digestible material!

Selling Notes Online

There are students who do not have the time or skills to create their set of notes and the only way out there for them is to outsource them.

If you are a good and precise note-maker, you can share your academic guides with the students who are ready to buy through the internet. 

Believe it or not, there is a huge demand for your study material these days, and you can make a decent by selling study notes online!

I feel that there is no harm in sharing your helpful notes for money. And besides, web technology has improved a lot, and thus, keeping the old records for sale is easier than ever. 

To sell study notes online, you may need to provide your school name, class, subject, etc. Also, you may upload either your handwritten notes or digitally typed notes to the appropriate category.

The earning potential of selling records would depend on the demand for your subject and how much the students like your notes and find it helpful. 

There exist some websites that are specifically meant for the students to sell your study summaries and now, let me consolidate some legit sites where you can sell your notes online.

11 Sites to Sell Notes Online 

Check the below 11 Notes Marketplace for students to buy and sell notes online!


These sites are not in any specific order. Each website has its unique set of features, and you’re advised to prefer the one which suits you the most.

1. Stuvia

If you want to turn notes into cash, then Stuvia is the exact place! It accepts the study materials and summaries from the countries like South Africa, Belgium, France, Germany, Spain, The Netherlands, and the United Kingdom. It is an incredible marketplace to sell notes online.

It’s very simple to use. Study guides from students are ordered here by ratings, the greater the ratings of your notes, the higher are the chances of them appearing in a potential buyer’s page. You’re being rewarded if people like your work and vice versa.

To grab some good ratings which ultimately would lead to chunks of money, Stuvia recommends you sell your notes initially for free. You can alter the price later on!

They also notify the potential buyers about the helpful study documents before their exams and thus you would get benefited from their active promotion. 

2. Docmerit

Docmerit is one of the best online platforms to sell notes, exam solutions, textbook summaries, and theses. Here, by helping others learn, the students are getting a great opportunity to make money by selling their course notes.

Setting the price by themselves is an exceptional feature of this note selling medium and the students can earn 85% per sale. Since Docmerit offers the highest payout ratio and sends the payment through PayPal, it is standing out from other similar websites.

This reliable website can be accessed around the globe and provides 24 * 7 technical support to the notes sellers. I would say that this flexible medium is highly comfortable for the students to earn while they learn by uploading the study documents.

3. StudySoup

StudySoup is one of the most promising notes selling websites launched on the web in the year 2014. The homepage is full of testimonials of students making over a thousand dollars per month. Currently, it is available for US students only. 

Getting started with StudySoup is easy. You simply need to create a free account, and you’re ready to go. However, to start selling StudySoup, you need to be from a university mentioned in their list of schools. 

4. OneClass

If you are a student from the United States, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand, you can start earning from OneClass. It range seems to be more diverse than the StudySoup. There are a lot of universities covered around the theUnited States and Canada.

Thus, if your school doesn’t list at StudySoup, you don’t have to lose hope! OneClass boasts of millions of notes by around 800,000 university students. Besides, there’s a question-answer section as well. Awesome, isn’t it?

The interesting part of OneClass is that it pays you with gift cards from places such as Amazon, Starbucks, and more. It might seem a great deal if you wanted to use your money that way, but it’s a grave disadvantage if you need straightaway cash from your work.

5. OxbridgeNotes

OxbridgeNotes is yet another good portal with a buyer base of 250,000 people. Also, it can be your note-selling partner if you’re from any of these six countries – Australia, Ireland, Canada, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, and the United States. 

If you got good notes, you can upload here and receive cash on a monthly basis. They will not reveal your name to the buyers, and you may leave from the site whenever you want. They need Notes, Essay Plans, Mind Maps, Typed Up Notes from the outstanding students who got good grades in their academics.

However, you can’t just register for a free account and get started directly. You need to fill a form, and if they like your details, they will invite you to join as a note seller. 

6. Notesgen

Notesgen is an online educational marketplace created in the year 2015. If you’re an Indian student, you can make use of this notes selling website and earn money from your valuable tutorials.

Yes! just upload your self-prepared academic notes in Notesgen, set price for others to purchase, and get paid for every sale. Notesgen has a well-designed mobile app (both Android and iOS) to access the purchased content from anywhere, anytime.

The best part of Notesgen is that it doesn’t let the buyers download the notes directly. Instead, it lets them view the notes in their mobile app or file viewer software. 

7. NoteSale

NoteSale is a UK based website for students to sell college notes through the internet. I really like its neat, clean yet appealing interface. It acts as a good intermediary between the notes sellers & buyers.

Create a free account and get started. Uploading a note just takes 2 minutes. Once your notes are downloaded, the payment will be made instantly. 

8. NoteUtopia

NoteUtopia is a perfect student community where you can put up your notes for sale and make extra cash. Selling class notes is simple in NoteUtopia like other websites. You just need to upload your study documents, fix the price, and cash out.

Therefore, if you have had poor luck with other portals, you can get your “sell my note” message here.
