Payment Options for Students

This article covers payment options for students and the different pay structures you can set up when getting ready to sell your course.


Students have two payment options when it comes to purchasing courses on Teachable: paying with a credit card or with their PayPal account. These payment options are available to students when a school owner has either payment gateway options set up.
