Viewing Purchases

This article gives guides you through viewing an individual user's purchases—both one-time purchases and course subscriptions.

Finding an Individual’s Purchases

  1. Log into your Teachable school.
  2. Select Users from the admin sidebar.
  3. Choose a specific user from their respective list (i.e. Students, Owners, Authors, or Affiliates).

    TIP: If you have many users, make searching easier by filtering the results with their name or email.

  4. Inside the individual user area, select Purchases

Active Subscriptions

In the Active Subscriptions section, you'll see a list of courses the user is subscribed to—this includes both course subscriptions and payment plans. From here, you can see which course your student is enrolled in, the billing interval they are under, the recurring price, and their time of enrollment. You can also end a course subscription by clicking the red trash icon.


Transaction History

In the Transaction History section, you'll find the date a transaction was made, the Sale Price (if applicable), Price (full price, in USD), Earnings (what you net), the Course that was purchased, the coupon that was used (if applicable), and the attributed affiliate (if applicable).
