If you get your course up and running with the.
totally free plan, then Teachable will take a 10% deal cost (). The next strategy over is their Standard strategy. On this plan, Teachable will take a 5% transaction fee.

It would also be fantastic if integrating with ConvertKit really worked entirely right from the Teachable admin. Then you would not require to use Zapier and you wouldn’t have to pay an additional fee. Unfortunately, I don’t think you’ll fix the problem by utilizing a different e-mail marketing service. I’m unsure any of the email marketing tools work effectively with the addition of that check box, however you’ll need to offer it a try.
