One great thing about being a small and nimble company is that we can make decisions very quickly. We can also opt to do things completely differently without having to ask for permission. So it’s with great pleasure we announce:
Teachery no longer charges customers transaction fees*
Why remove transaction fees? What does this mean for you?
Plain and simple it boiled down to this question: Would we want to be charged transaction fees? The answer was “No!”
So why the heck are we doing it!?
Well, we started with transaction fees because it’s what other course creation platforms were doing. It’s also what other SaaS (software as a service) companies do. But just because other people do something doesn’t mean we have to.
What does this mean going forward?
From this day forth, we have three pricing options for Teachery that are fully-featured:
- $470/year (saving 20% over monthly)
- $900/lifetime (you pay us once, and never pay us again!)
We believe Teachery is a very valuable and useful piece of software that can help your business grow and make money. It’s worth paying for. That's why we no longer offer a free plan.
All of our pricing plan options come with a 14-day free trial. We don’t even want to take a credit card number from you until you get in Teachery and start building your first course.
If you love Teachery and think it’s the friendliest and most well-designed course creation platform on this side of the Milky Way Galaxy, we want you on board. If not, there are plenty of other options we will happily point you in the direction of.

*There are still some transaction fees (Stripe)
When we talk about transaction fees going away, we are talking specifically about Teachery’s transaction fees. As a course creator, if you opt to use our beautifully designed Payment Pages you will still pay our payment processor’s (Stripe) fees when you sell a course. These fees are out of our control, but are honestly well worth the tiny amount you’ll pay given how easy we make it to create a payment page and let someone buy your amazing course.
Stripe charges 2.9% + $0.29 per transaction. So if you sell a $100 course, you will pay $3.19 to Stripe, netting you $96.81.
If you want to sell your course using your own payment forms or services you can always manually on-board the students who buy your course(s). Here's our help doc about using outside payment processors.
We hope you enjoy our decision to not charge you transaction fees, we’re certainly excited about it!
We've put a ton of time and effort in Teachery since the summer of 2014. We have big plans for the future and want to continue to build the most customer-friendly course creation software in the universe.
