They were frequently a bit clueless when it got to that level and sent me to tutorials that didn’t assist with what I required. With the more fundamental concerns, I didn’t need to go back and forth with them several times to get the problem arranged out – . They typically responded to the question to the degree I required the first time. There is no customer assistance contact number and no live chat for customers of Teachable.

Transaction costs are high up on the complimentary and low-end strategies. If you get your course up and running with the.
complimentary plan, then Teachable will take a 10% deal fee (). The next strategy over is their Basic strategy. On this strategy, Teachable will take a 5% deal charge. If you sign-up for their most popular plan, which is the Professional plan, Teachable will not take a transaction charge when you integrate with PayPal or Stripe.

on. White labeling simply indicates can you make the course look like it’s running on your own platform.

As an example, if I were utilizing a Teachable subdomain, clicking on the logo design above or any Teachable created page will take the user to businessbolts.teachable.com. If I’m using my own domain (offered on updated strategies), then clicking the logo design will take the user to courses.businessbolts.com. Although the Teachable course area looks great, you can’t tailor most of it, so your course will appear like a Teachable course to those who have actually used this platform prior to. Your sales pages will likewise appear like they’re running Teachable to those who can spot it. In reality, this really may not be much of a problem.

The issue is the check box is on the register page (for both totally free or paid courses). It doesn’t work even when ConvertKit is integrated correctly through the Teachable admin – .
Considering that it does not work everyone will be included to your ConvertKit list. It does not matter if they marked it off or not. To get this box to work you’ll need to utilize Zapier.

It would also be terrific if integrating with ConvertKit actually worked entirely right from the Teachable admin. Then you wouldn’t need to use Zapier and you wouldn’t have to pay an extra cost. Unfortunately, I do not think you’ll fix the problem by utilizing a various e-mail marketing service. I’m not sure any of the email marketing tools work properly with the addition of that check box, but you’ll need to give it a shot.
