Transaction charges are high on the free and low-end strategies. If you get your course up and running with the.
totally free plan, then Teachable will take a 10% deal cost (). The next strategy over is their Basic plan. On this strategy, Teachable will take a 5% transaction charge. If you sign-up for their most popular plan, which is the Professional strategy, Teachable will not take a transaction charge when you integrate with PayPal or Stripe.

It would likewise be terrific if integrating with ConvertKit really worked totally right from the Teachable admin. Then you would not require to utilize Zapier and you wouldn’t need to pay an extra fee. Regrettably, I do not believe you’ll resolve the problem by using a different email marketing service. I’m not exactly sure any of the email marketing tools work effectively with the addition of that check box, but you’ll need to provide it a try.
