Purchase a Course

This article goes over how to purchase a course as a student.


Once you decide to purchase a course from a Teachable school, you'll first have to decide which pricing plan you want to purchase. If there is only one pricing plan, then you can click any enroll button on the sales page to bring you to the checkout page.


If there are multiple pricing plans, you'll have to choose which one you'd like to purchase. 


Once you select a pricing option, you can continue to the checkout page by clicking the enroll button.

The Checkout Page

Once you're redirected to the checkout page, you’ll be able to add coupons, add a VAT ID (if applicable), as well as select which account and payment method you’d like to use to purchase the course.

Order Summary

In this section of the checkout page, you can review the course you are purchasing, and the final amount. If applicable, this is also where you would enter a coupon code or VAT ID.

If you have a coupon code, clicking the Add Coupon button will reveal a text field for you to enter your coupon code. Once applied, the pricing will reflect your new discounted price.


If you are located in a country where VAT is levied, the amount charged for VAT will be shown here. If applicable, you can click Add VAT ID to input your VAT ID number, which will in turn remove the VAT charge from your order total.


Student Login Details

If this is your first time purchasing a course from this school, and therefore you do not have an account already, the email address you enter here will be used to create your account.


After completing your purchase, you'll be prompted to input your name and create a password for your account. You'll also be sent an email asking you to confirm their account (more on that below).


If you already have an account in the school, enter in the email your account is under. Then, you'll be prompted to enter your account password. Enter in your password and click Log In.


Similarly, if you are purchasing a course from a myTeachable-enabled school and have an existing myTeachable account from an account in a different school hosted on Teachable, you'll be asked to input your myTeachable account's password.


Payment Information - credit card

Here you can choose your payment method: PayPal, credit card, or mobile pay. If you are purchasing a course using a credit card, select the Credit Card radio button. Then enter your Name on Card, Card Number, Expiration Date, CVC Code, Country, and Postal Code.  When you're finished, click the Buy Now button.

If you make any errors when entering this information, the incorrect information will turn red. You can then re-enter the information. Once you've entered all the required information, you can then choose to save your payment information to myTeachable by checking the Save my card for future purchases box.


Payment Information - PayPal

If you are purchasing a course using PayPal, select the PayPal radio button and select your Country, then click the PayPal button. Upon checkout, you'll be redirected to PayPal’s website to complete your purchase.

NOTE: Courses with recurring (e.g. subscription or payment plans), non-USD pricing plans can only be purchased with a credit card.


Payment Information - mobile

If you are purchasing a course using a mobile payment app, either Google Pay or Apple Pay will be displayed. Tapping this option will take you to a modal where you will be asked to review your payment information. Ensure everything is correct and tap Pay. You will be asked to enter your CVV number. Tap Confirm


Billing Address

If you are purchasing the product with a credit or debit card, you will be asked to complete your billing address.

If purchasing the product as a business, you can click the option Add a Business Name button to enter in your business name. If a business name is added, it will be listed in the Billing Address section of the student receipt.

Users are prompted to fill out Country, Street Address, City, State/Province/Region, and Postal Code. Required fields vary by country.


All customers have the option to check off a Delivery address same as billing field. If the delivery address is different from the billing address, customers will be prompted to fill in a delivery address as well. While there might not be any physical products associated with the purchase, this information is required to calculate any taxes, if applicable.


Complete Your Purchase

Once you have entered your payment information, click the Buy Now button to complete your purchase.


In some cases, your bank may require you to authorize your credit card payment. If so, a pop-up window will appear prompting you for additional information to authorize the payment with your bank:PSD2-sca-at-checkout.png

NOTE: If you’re using PayPal to purchase a course, then you will be redirected to PayPal to complete your purchase.
