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

on. White labeling just implies can you make the course appear like it’s working on your own platform.

As revealed above, the sign up and sign in pages will constantly display a sso.teachable.com URL that can not.

Sadly, I did not see any reference of this that made me feel a little weird (OK, not simply odd, however misinformed). The issue is the check box is on the sign up page (for both free or paid courses). It does not work even when ConvertKit is integrated effectively through the Teachable admin – .
Because it does not work everybody will be added to your ConvertKit list. It does not matter if they marked it off or not. To get this box to work you’ll have to use Zapier.

It would likewise be terrific if integrating with ConvertKit really worked completely right from the Teachable admin. Then you wouldn’t need to utilize Zapier and you would not have to pay an extra cost. Sadly, I do not believe you’ll resolve the problem by utilizing a various e-mail marketing service. I’m not exactly sure any of the e-mail marketing tools work properly with the addition of that check box, but you’ll need to offer it a try.
