The people responding are professional and appeared experienced with the majority of the support questions 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 needed. With the more basic concerns, I didn’t need to go backward and forward with them numerous times to get the issue figured out – . They normally answered the question to the degree I required the first time. There is no client support phone number and no live chat for customers of Teachable.

Another feature I like is the ability to set-up a blog right within your Teachable admin.

Again, I do suggest registering a domain rather of utilizing the Teachable subdomain.

For example, if you live in the EU, you can turn on tax compliance( BARREL) which is also a helpful function. Teachable’s checkout page looks incredible. It’s a bit long, so I’ve had to break it up into a number of screenshots. Then it asks them to enter their account information. This includes an e-mail address and name.

be changed. 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 using a Teachable subdomain, clicking the logo above or any Teachable created page will take the user to businessbolts.teachable.com.

You’ll also need to be prepared to spend some time on it and/or possibly work with a web designer proficient with HTML/CSS.

Considering that it does not work everyone will be contributed 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.
