Again, I do recommend registering a domain instead of using the Teachable subdomain.

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

It would likewise be excellent if integrating with ConvertKit really worked completely right from the Teachable admin. Then you wouldn’t need to utilize Zapier and you wouldn’t need to pay an additional fee. Regrettably, I do not think you’ll resolve the problem by utilizing a various e-mail marketing service. I’m uncertain any of the email marketing tools work effectively with the addition of that check box, however you’ll have to give it a try.
