You can email them and they normally email back within a day. Individuals responding are expert and seemed experienced with many of the support questions I asked up until I got to a question handling integrations. They were frequently a bit clueless when it got to that level and sent me to tutorials that didn’t help with what I needed. With the more basic questions, I didn’t need to go backward and forward with them several times to get the issue sorted out – . They typically addressed the concern to the degree I needed the very first time. There is no customer assistance phone number and no live chat for clients of Teachable.

Deal fees are high on the complimentary and low-end strategies. If you get your course up and running with the.
complimentary plan, then Teachable will take a 10% transaction fee (). The next plan over is their Basic plan. On this plan, Teachable will take a 5% deal cost.

Then you wouldn’t require to utilize Zapier and you would not have to pay an extra fee. Unfortunately, I do not think you’ll solve the issue by using a different e-mail marketing service.
