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.

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)
      • For non-USD purchases using a credit card: 3.9% of the course price + 30 cents 
      • For non-USD purchases using PayPal: 4.4% of the course price + 30 cents

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% of the course price + 30 cents (credit card processing fee)
        • For non-USD purchases using a credit card: 3.9% of the course price + 30 cents 
        • For non-USD purchases using PayPal: 4.4% of the course price + 30 cents

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's payment gateway
        • 0% of the course price when using your own custom payment gateways
        • 2.9% of the course price + 30 cents (credit card processing fee)
          • For non-USD purchases using a credit card: 3.9% of the course price + 30 cents 
          • For non-USD purchases using PayPal: 4.4% of the course price + 30 cents
        • If using custom gateway: whatever processing fees you negotiate with Stripe/PayPal

Business Plan

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

        • 0% of the course price
        • 2.9% of the course price + 30 cents (credit card processing fee)
          • For non-USD purchases using a credit card: 3.9% of the course price + 30 cents
