It’s a bit long, so I’ve needed to break it up into a number of screenshots. Then it asks to enter their account information. This consists of an email address and name. Then they have the choice of clicking off the check box for training and marketing emails. The order will go through whether that box it marked off or not.
You do want to make sure you are filtering trainees out if they did not mark that box as that indicates they just want your course and not your marketing e-mails.

Although you can add content to the check out page, the reviews, bullet points, and cash back guarantee can not be moved. The next part of the checkout page looks like this: It also looks incredible.

totally free plan, then Teachable will take a 10% transaction cost (). The next plan over is their Basic plan. On this plan, Teachable will take a 5% transaction charge.

As an example, if I were using 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 updated strategies), then clicking the logo will take the user to courses.businessbolts.com.

It would likewise be great if integrating with ConvertKit actually worked totally right from the Teachable admin. Then you wouldn’t require to use Zapier and you wouldn’t need to pay an extra fee. Unfortunately, I do not believe you’ll fix the issue by utilizing a various e-mail marketing service.
