Individuals responding are professional and appeared well-informed with most of the support concerns I asked up until I got to a question dealing with combinations. They were frequently a bit clueless when it got to that level and sent me to tutorials that didn’t aid with what I required. With the more standard questions, I didn’t need to go backward and forward with them numerous times to get the concern arranged out – . They typically responded to the question to the degree I required the very first time. There is no client support telephone number and no live chat for consumers of Teachable.

Again, I do recommend signing up a domain name rather of utilizing the Teachable subdomain. That is simple enough to do and comes at an extremely minimal cost unless naturally you wind up with a premium domain name (those can be in the countless dollars ).

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

Transaction costs are high up on the free and low-end strategies. If you get your course up and running with the.
complimentary plan, then Teachable will take a 10% deal charge (). The next strategy over is their Fundamental strategy. On this strategy, Teachable will take a 5% transaction charge. If you sign-up for their most popular strategy, which is the Professional plan, Teachable will not take a deal fee when you incorporate with PayPal or Stripe. According to the Teachable site, PayPal or Stripe will take 2.9 %+ 30 cents for each deal. This is a pretty common deal cost for processing credit cards.

As an example, if I were utilizing a Teachable subdomain, clicking the logo design above or any Teachable created page will take the user to businessbolts.teachable.com. If I’m using my own domain (available on updated strategies), then clicking on the logo design will take the user to courses.businessbolts.com.

Unfortunately, I did not see any mention of this that made me feel a little weird (OK, not just unusual, however deceived). The issue is the check box is on the register page (for both complimentary or paid courses). It does not work even when ConvertKit is incorporated effectively through the Teachable admin – .
Since it doesn’t work everyone will be added to your ConvertKit list. It does not matter if they marked it off or not. To get this box to work you’ll have to use Zapier.

Then you wouldn’t require to use Zapier and you wouldn’t need to pay an extra charge. Unfortunately, I do not believe you’ll solve the issue by utilizing a various email marketing service. I’m unsure any of the e-mail marketing tools work properly with the addition of that check box, however you’ll need to offer it a shot.
