The individuals responding are professional and seemed educated with most of the support questions I asked until I got to a concern dealing with integrations. They were typically 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 fundamental concerns, I didn’t have to go back and forth with them multiple times to get the concern figured out – . They usually answered the concern to the degree I required the very first time. There is no client assistance phone number and no live chat for clients of Teachable.

If you get your course up and running with the.
free plan, then Teachable will take a 10% transaction cost (). The next plan over is their Standard plan. On this plan, Teachable will take a 5% transaction cost. If you sign-up for their most popular plan, which is the Professional strategy, Teachable will not take a transaction cost when you incorporate with PayPal or Stripe.

As revealed above, the register and sign in pages will constantly show a sso.teachable.com URL that can not.
be altered. The logo design can not be set up to go to your home page. That page displays all my Teachable courses. As an example, if I were using a Teachable subdomain, clicking on 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 strategies), then clicking on the logo design will take the user to courses.businessbolts.com.

It would likewise be fantastic if incorporating with ConvertKit actually worked entirely right from the Teachable admin. Then you wouldn’t require to use Zapier and you wouldn’t need to pay an additional cost. Unfortunately, I do not think you’ll resolve the problem by utilizing a various email marketing service. I’m not sure any of the email marketing tools work properly with the addition of that check box, but you’ll have to give it a try.
