If you get your course up and running with the.
complimentary strategy, then Teachable will take a 10% transaction charge (). The next plan over is their Standard plan. On this strategy, Teachable will take a 5% transaction charge. If you sign-up for their most popular plan, which is the Professional plan, Teachable will not take a transaction fee when you integrate with PayPal or Stripe. According to the Teachable website, PayPal or Stripe will take 2.9 %+ 30 cents for each deal. This is a quite common deal fee for processing credit cards.

Then you would not require to use Zapier and you wouldn’t have to pay an extra cost. Sadly, I do not believe you’ll resolve the problem by utilizing a various email marketing service.
