Frequently Asked Questions

Why should I upload now?

To maximise sales. We can’t sell your notes if they are rotting on your hard drive. Your notes are available for purchase the instant they are approved, which means that you could be missing potential sales as we speak. Despite exam and holiday breaks, our users purchase notes all year round, so the best time to upload notes is always today.

What notes can I sell?

You can sell any notes, templates or course guides that you have produced throughout your studies.

What can't I sell?

Nexus Notes won't approve materials that have been created by your university or another third party. We also do not accept assignments, essays, practicals or take-home exams. We love notes though.

How does the commission structure work?

Each time one of your notes sell, Nexus Notes takes a 50% commission. We do reserve the right to discount notes (for example, when downloaders use promo codes or share their purchases through social media), however, even in this situation you still receive your 50% commission.

What does 'verification' mean?

In addition to the notes, we also encourage students to upload a copy of their academic transcript. This can be a screenshot from your university's online portal or a scanned image. If your transcript matches the grade you claimed for that subject we ‘verify’ your notes, and a blue verification shield will appear next to your notes. You need either a High Distinction or Distinction for the subject the notes relate to. In instances where the quality is high, we still approve unverified notes for sale, however, they will not receive the blue verification shield.

I've got great notes with bad grades, can I still upload?

Yes, so long as they are exceptionally high quality. However, the notes will not receive the blue verification shield.

Isn't it plagiarism?

No. Universities do not mark notes, they mark assignments, essays, exams and practicals. We only sell notes, which are learning materials and cannot be submitted for assessment purposes For any other legal queries, please refer to our Terms & Conditions kindly prepared by King & Wood Mallesons.

How long does it take to upload?

Uploading notes is quick and easy. It can take as little as 90 seconds per set of notes. Put it this way, in the time it took to read these FAQs, you could’ve uploaded several sets of notes.

Who would want to buy my notes?

Our users buy notes for a number of reasons. Most of our downloaders either have little time to prepare for exams, don't have their own contacts with great notes or are keen to see whether they have missed anything in their preparation. They may even just want to see how a top student formats their own notes. There is no shortage of demand for good quality notes.

I usually give my notes out to friends for free, should I still upload?

That’s up to you - every person you give your notes is someone that won’t buy them. Whilst we don’t encourage it, even if you give your notes out to your friends hopefully your notes should still sell to other people.

How do I get paid?

We pay commissions at the beginning of each month on ‘PAYDAY’. All payments are made through PayPal, meaning that you do need to have an active PayPal account (linked to an active bank account). Make sure your PayPal email is entered correctly in the Profile section of your Dashboard.

Why were my notes rejected from Nexus Notes?

Nexus Notes takes quality assurance very seriously to ensure there is only strong quality content on our site. Your notes may have been rejected for any of the following reasons:

- Your notes were an assignment, take-home exam, practical or other university-assessed piece of work
- Your notes contain resources lifted from textbooks, or contain copyrighted materials
- Your handwritten notes are messy or not clear
- Your notes already exist on the site for sale by another user, or

What format should my notes be in?

Whilst you may upload your notes in Word .docx format, we encourage you to upload in .pdf to ensure you have visibility over the word to PDF conversion.

What information should I put in the description?

Put simply, the better the description, the higher your chances of selling.

- Start off by describing how these notes helped you ace the subject and why other students should buy them
- Including as much information about the notes is best, and listing the topic names from within the course is helpful
- Ensure your notes title has the subject number and full name of the subject included
