It’s a bit long, so I’ve needed to break it up into a number of screenshots. Then it asks to enter their account information. This consists of an email address and name.

totally free strategy, 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 fee. 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.
