Symptoms

  • I would like to know if I can sell a game that I made in Unity using the Personal Edition?
  • Can I make money from a game or app I made using the free version of Unity?

Cause

You are a developer using Unity Personal Edition. 

You want to sell a game or app you have made and continue to use the Free/Personal Edition, without upgrading to Plus or Pro.

Resolution

You can absolutely sell commercial games made in the Personal Edition of Unity. 

To do this, you must meet the requirements to use Unity Personal Edition. This is that you did not earn or receive more than $100,000 in revenue or funding in the most recent 12 month period.

More Information

If you are a 'independent/solo developer' - revenue earned is based on personal revenue made from using Unity, in the most recent 12 month period. E.G money earned from Unity Ads or games published.

If you wish to use Unity Personal Edition, whilst working for a company, the $100,000 cap is in relation to the entire company's overall earned revenue or funding for the most recent 12 month period.
