You can email them and they generally email back within a day. The individuals responding are professional and appeared knowledgeable with the majority of the assistance concerns I asked until I got to a question handling integrations.

Another feature I like is the ability to set-up a blog site right within your Teachable admin.

Although you can add content to the check out page, the testimonials, bullet points, and refund warranty can not be moved. The next part of the checkout page appears like this: It also looks amazing. It will display in the same 2 column format, but my 2nd column didn’t reach far enough down. Then they likewise have to accept all the Regards to Use and Personal Privacy Policies for both Teachable and your business. Then they click’ Enroll in Course ‘to complete positioning the order.

They’ll likewise payment your affiliates which is good. If you use PayPal or Stripe for your payment processor( which is only possible on the Professional strategy or up), then you’ll make money out instantly.
