Transaction Fee Breakdown

This article gives you a breakdown of the transaction fees that you will be charged on sales made with your Teachable school. Note that this article does not cover the monthly/annual prices of these plans, payments you make to authors/affiliates, etc.

NOTE: Additional fees may be charged by payment processors — Stripe & PayPal —for international sales and exchanges.

Free Plan

Teachable’s free plan has no transaction fees for free courses offered by the school. The following fees only apply to every sale of paid courses sold by your school:

  • $1 fixed fee + 10% of the course price (Teachable fee)
  • 2.9% of the course price + 30 cents (credit card processing fee)

Basic Plan

Upgrading to the basic plan removes the $1 fixed fee on each sale, and you’ll be charged a lower percentage of paid course sales transactions.

  • 5% of the course price (Teachable fee)
  • 2.9% + 30 cents (credit card processing fee)

Professional Plan

The Professional plan opens up the possibility to own your own payment gateways. If you choose this option, you’ll pay no fees to Teachable. However, you can still choose to use Teachable’s payment gateways for a small fee.

  • 2% of the course price when using Teachable.com payment gateways
  • 0% of the course price when using your own payment gateways
  • If using Teachable gateway: 2.9% + 30 cents (credit card processing fee)
  • If using custom gateway: whatever processing fees you negotiate with Stripe/PayPal

High Volume Plan

The High Volume plan has no Teachable fees regardless of whether you use Teachable payment gateways or your own. You'll only pay credit card processing fees.

  • 0% of the course price
  • If using Teachable gateway: 2.9% + 30 cents (credit card processing fee)
  • If using custom gateway: whatever processing fees you negotiate with Stripe/PayPal

NOTE: You will still have credit card fees on your own custom payment gateways you set up.
