This article goes over common troubleshooting steps you can take when experiencing technical issues with your school and/or course.

Owner, author, and affiliate accounts

Why isn’t my product being displayed on my products page?

If your school and product are both published, but the product isn’t being displayed, please check the Visibility Settings via the Information tab for that product.

Learn more information about product visibility settings in your school.

Why does my sales page say “closed for enrollment”?

The “closed for enrollment” text displays when a Pricing block has been added to the product’s sales page, but a pricing plan hasn’t been selected to display in the block.

If you have already created a pricing option for your product:

  1. Navigate to the Pages tab for your product.
  2. Click Edit next to the sales page.
  3. Click on the Pricing block.

I published my product–why is my school saying it’s offline?

Publishing a product and having your school online are managed separately within your school. You can change the status of your school at any time by going to Settings > General.

When will I receive my school payout?

Payout schedules are determined by the payment gateway you are using.

  • For school’s on teachable:pay, you can set your payout schedule to daily, weekly, or monthly.
  • For school’s on the Monthly Payment Gateway, payouts are sent on the first of each month (unless it falls on a weekend or holiday).
  • For school’s on a custom payment gateway, payouts are handled directly by Stripe and/or PayPal.

For schools using teachable:pay or the Monthly Payment Gateway, please contact Customer Support at for specific questions related to your account.

For school’s on a custom payment gateway, please contact Stripe or PayPal directly for assistance.

Why is my payout less than my earnings?

Your Total Sales are calculated based on the purchase price at checkout, while your Earnings are calculated after all taxes, fees, reserves, and author/affiliate payouts are subtracted.

If you are on teachable:pay, 10% of earnings are held in reserve to offset any potential student refunds or chargebacks creating a negative account balance. These reserves are paid out on a 45 day rolling basis.
