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

There will be pages that have a Teachable.com URL in them even if you utilize your own domain name. As shown above, the sign up and check in pages will constantly display a sso.teachable.com URL that can not.

As an example, if I were using a Teachable subdomain, clicking on the logo design above or any Teachable developed page will take the user to businessbolts.teachable.com. If I’m utilizing my own domain (offered on updated plans), then clicking the logo design will take the user to courses.businessbolts.com.

It would likewise be fantastic if incorporating with ConvertKit really worked totally right from the Teachable admin. Then you would not need to use Zapier and you would not have to pay an extra charge. Sadly, I don’t think you’ll resolve the problem by utilizing a different email marketing service. I’m uncertain any of the e-mail marketing tools work correctly with the addition of that check box, however you’ll have to give it a try.
