You can email them and they typically email back within a day. The individuals replying are professional and appeared well-informed with many of the assistance concerns I asked until I got to a concern handling integrations. They were frequently a bit clueless when it got to that level and sent me to tutorials that didn’t assist with what I needed. With the more fundamental questions, I didn’t have to go backward and forward with them several times to get the issue figured out – . They generally addressed the question to the degree I required the very first time. There is no customer support contact number and no live chat for clients of Teachable.
