Individuals replying are professional and seemed well-informed with the majority of the support questions I asked until I got to a question dealing with integrations. They were frequently a bit unaware when it got to that level and sent me to tutorials that didn’t aid with what I needed.

If you get your course up and running with the.
complimentary strategy, then Teachable will take a 10% deal fee (). The next strategy over is their Basic plan. On this strategy, Teachable will take a 5% transaction fee. If you sign-up for their most popular strategy, which is the Professional plan, Teachable will not take a deal charge when you incorporate with PayPal or Stripe.

As an example, if I were using a Teachable subdomain, clicking the logo design above or any Teachable created page will take the user to businessbolts.teachable.com.

It would also be excellent if integrating with ConvertKit actually worked completely right from the Teachable admin. Then you wouldn’t need to use Zapier and you would not have to pay an extra cost. Sadly, I do not believe you’ll solve the issue by using a various e-mail marketing service. I’m not sure any of the e-mail marketing tools work correctly with the addition of that check box, however you’ll have to give it a try.
