You can email them and they generally email back within a day. The people responding are expert and seemed experienced with many of the support concerns I asked up until I got to a question handling combinations. They were frequently a bit clueless when it got to that level and sent me to tutorials that didn’t aid with what I required. With the more fundamental concerns, I didn’t have to go back and forth with them numerous times to get the issue figured out – . They generally addressed the question to the degree I needed the very first time. There is no consumer assistance contact number and no live chat for clients of Teachable.

Again, I do recommend registering a domain instead of using the Teachable subdomain. That is easy enough to do and comes at a very minimal cost unless naturally you wind up with a premium domain name (those can be in the thousands of dollars ). Teachable has its own in-platform payment option so you do not have to pay affiliates or even sign-up for a payment processor.

Transaction charges are high on the free and low-end strategies. If you get your course up and running with the.
complimentary plan, then Teachable will take a 10% transaction fee (). The next strategy over is their Basic strategy. On this strategy, Teachable will take a 5% transaction cost. If you sign-up for their most popular strategy, which is the Professional plan, Teachable will not take a transaction charge when you integrate with PayPal or Stripe. According to the Teachable website, PayPal or Stripe will take 2.9 %+ 30 cents for each deal. This is a pretty typical transaction fee for processing credit cards.

be altered. The logo can not be configured to go to your home page. That page displays all my Teachable courses. As an example, if I were utilizing a Teachable subdomain, clicking the logo above or any Teachable developed page will take the user to businessbolts.teachable.com. If I’m using my own domain (readily available on upgraded plans), then clicking on the logo will take the user to courses.businessbolts.com. Although the Teachable course location looks excellent, you can’t customize most of it, so your course will look like a Teachable course to those who’ve utilized this platform before. Your sales pages will likewise look like they’re running off Teachable to those who can spot it. In truth, this truly might not be much of an issue.

You’ll likewise need to be ready to spend some time on it and/or perhaps employ a web designer skilled with HTML/CSS.

Sadly, I did not see any reference of this which made me feel a little weird (OKAY, not just unusual, however deceived). 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 incorporated properly through the Teachable admin – .
Because 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 use Zapier.

Then you wouldn’t require to use Zapier and you would not need to pay an additional cost. Unfortunately, I don’t think you’ll solve the problem by using a various e-mail marketing service. I’m not exactly sure any of the e-mail marketing tools work appropriately with the addition of that check box, however you’ll have to give it a shot.
