This article goes over how to purchase a course as a student and breaks down the various parts of a course's checkout page.
Once you decide to purchase a course from a Teachable-powered school, you'll first have to decide which pricing plan you want to purchase. If there is only one pricing plan, then the price will be reflected in the enroll button.
If there are multiple pricing plans, you'll have to choose which one you'd like to purchase. By clicking the enroll button, or scrolling down the page, you'll be shown a table of possible pricing plans as set by the school owner.
From there, you can choose which plan to purchase, and then continue to the checkout page by clicking the enroll button.
Understanding the Checkout Page
Once you are 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.
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. For more information on how Teachable handles VAT, see this article.
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 you input an email address, click Continue to validate your email address.
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 a school account, you'll have to enter your email address and click Continue. Afterwards, you'll be prompted to enter your account password.
Similarly, if you are purchasing a course from a myTeachable-enabled school and have an existing myTeachable account, you'll be asked to input your myTeachable account's password.
If you are paying for a course using a credit card, click the Credit Card tab. Afterwards, enter your Card Number, Expiration Date, CVC Code, Country, and Zip Code. If you are entering a new credit card, and would like to save your payment information to your myTeachable account, check the Save my card for future purchases checkbox (see this article for more information).
If you are paying through a PayPal account, you'll have to specify the country you're in. Upon checkout, you'll be taken to PayPal to enter your PayPal information.
Completing Your Purchase
Once you input all the required information, and are sure that all the information you've inputted is correct, click the enroll button to finalize your purchase.
Upon completion of your purchase, you'll automatically receive a receipt to the email specified in the Account Information section.
Click Confirm Email. Afterwards, you’ll be taken to the school you just purchased, and you can click the Go to Courses button to be taken to your course.
