Change Your Teachable Plan

This article goes over the different types of plans for your school, and how you can change them. For more information about Teachable plans and pricing, visit our pricing page.


There are 4 types of school plans on Teachable:

  • Free
  • Basic
  • Professional
  • Business

For in-depth information on feature availability per plan, take a look at this plan comparison chart.

The Primary Owner of your school can change your plan at anytime. To do so, go to Settings > Plan. The Current Plan icon indicates the plan your school is currently under. The Next Payment date is when you will be charged for the renewal of your plan.


For more information about the features available on your plan, click on the Features & Bonuses link under your current plan.


To apply a coupon to your current plan, click on the Apply Coupon link.


Then, in the Apply a Coupon to Your Current Plan pop-up modal that appears, enter the coupon code into the Coupon Code field. Click Apply.


Annual Versus Monthly

All paid plans come with the option of being billed monthly or annually. You can change your plan at any time from monthly to annually under the Settings > Plan in the admin sidebar. Annual plan pricing will display the monthly cost and the total billed annually. The total billed annually reflects what you will see at checkout. 


By default, all paid plans are set to automatically charge at the beginning of each billing period (monthly/annually), unless you downgrade your plan.

Upgrade Your Plan

Log in to your Teachable school and click Settings on your admin sidebar, then click Plan.

To upgrade your school, find the plan you would like to upgrade to and click Upgrade. Note that you can switch between monthly and annual plans using the toggle button.

NOTE: If you upgrade to a more expensive plan, we’ll take into account what you’ve already paid from your previous plan and credit it towards your purchase. You can see the amount you were credited in the "Applied Credit" section of your email receipt.

Afterwards, a window will pop up asking you to confirm your plan change. If you are upgrading from a paid plan, your credit/debit card information will be automatically inputted and you'll just have to confirm the upgrade. If you have no credit or debit card information stored, you'll have to input it before confirming your upgrade. This is also where you would enter your coupon code, if available.
If you'd like to change your billing information, you can do so by going to the Billing page within your admin area, or clicking the Update Billing button. For more information, take a look at the Update Billing Information article.

To finalize your upgrade, click the Confirm Upgrade button.

Downgrade Your Plan

When you downgrade from a paid plan, you automatically go to the Free plan. This also means that you will lose access to certain features you had on your paid plan. To downgrade your school plan, you must be the Primary Owner of the school.

From the Settings > Plan area of the school admin, find the plan you would like to switch to and click the Downgrade button. If you're downgrading from a paid plan to another paid plan, you’ll just be asked to confirm the change. When you downgrade your plan, Teachable holds the right to remove any additional features that are no longer supported on your plan.

CAUTION: If your school is using a custom domain, then you will not be able to cancel your paid plan. You must first set your default Teachable subdomain as the primary domain of your school, delete your custom domain(s), and then cancel your paid plan.


If you'd like to completely cancel your Teachable plan, find the plan you are currently under and click the Cancel Plan button.


You'll be asked to confirm your cancellation, as well as take a look over the features that you will lose by cancelling.


NOTE: If you cancel a paid plan, the cancellation will become effective at the end of the then-current billing cycle.

To complete your cancellation, select Cancel Plan.
