The people replying are expert and seemed educated with most of the support questions I asked till I got to a question dealing with combinations. They were typically 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 questions, I didn’t need to go back and forth with them multiple times to get the issue figured out – . They normally responded to the concern to the degree I required the very first time. There is no consumer support telephone number and no live chat for clients of Teachable.

Once again, I do suggest signing up a domain rather of using the Teachable subdomain.

It’s a bit long, so I have actually had to break it up into a couple of screenshots. Then it inquires to enter their account info. This includes an e-mail address and name.

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

Unfortunately, I did not see any reference of this which made me feel a little odd (OK, not just strange, however misguided).

Then you would not require to utilize Zapier and you would not need to pay an additional fee. Unfortunately, I don’t believe you’ll solve the issue by utilizing a various e-mail marketing service. I’m unsure any of the e-mail marketing tools work properly with the addition of that check box, but you’ll need to give it a shot.
