You can email them and they typically email back within a day. Individuals replying are expert and seemed educated with many of the assistance concerns I asked up until I got to a concern dealing with integrations. They were often a bit clueless when it got to that level and sent me to tutorials that didn’t assist with what I needed. With the more standard questions, I didn’t have to go back and forth with them multiple times to get the problem figured out – . They usually 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.

complimentary plan, then Teachable will take a 10% transaction cost (). The next plan over is their Standard strategy. On this plan, Teachable will take a 5% transaction charge.

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

As shown above, the sign up and check in pages will constantly show a sso.teachable.com URL that can not.
be altered. The logo can not be configured to go to your web page. That page displays all my Teachable courses. As an example, if I were utilizing a Teachable subdomain, clicking the logo design above or any Teachable produced page will take the user to businessbolts.teachable.com. If I’m utilizing my own domain (readily available on upgraded plans), then clicking the logo will take the user to courses.businessbolts.com. Although the Teachable course area looks fantastic, you can’t customize the majority of it, so your course will look like a Teachable course to those who have actually utilized this platform prior to.

You’ll likewise require to be going to invest some time on it and/or possibly work with a web designer experienced with HTML/CSS.
