Yes, another blog post! We've been busy lately and we have another fairly big change to tell you about. It's pretty exciting and involves a feature that has been requested over and over by you guys. Today we're beginning to offer a no-fees pricing option! NO FEES! Starting now, we'll be offering subscription pricing with an option for zero transaction fees.
If you're a fan of our current pricing or you just don't like change - we get it! That's why, in the interest of being transparent, we're laying out the reasoning behind this change.
Our old pricing was confusing. Pro upgrades? One time fee? Per course? Everyday we receive many questions asking us to clarify our pricing. It didn't make much sense. The pricing structure was also very different from everyone else in the industry. Which leads me to...
It's now easier to compare us to other e-course platforms. Since our pricing was so different from everyone else in the industry, it was like comparing apples to oranges when shopping around. Now you can easily stack us up against any other e-course platform.
Lastly, many people have requested zero transaction fees. Pay-as-you-go is awesome when you're first starting out because you don't have to pay anything up front. But once you get going with your e-courses, you'll probably want to ditch the transaction fee. Do the math and you'll most likely find that it will save you some money!
So here are our pricing plans! There is still a pay-as-you-go option so, as always, you can get started with no up-front costs or just continue to pay transaction fees if you prefer.

What happened to the Pro upgrade?
If you upgraded your course to Pro before the new pricing changes everything about that course will continue working as before. You'll still have access to all the features you paid for including the customized URL, ability to bundle, custom branding and forms. Add-ons and collaborators are not technically Pro features, but any that you have created will still work. You can keep running your Pro courses as normal without subscribing.
If you'd like to make a new course that uses a feature in one of the new pricing tiers, you'll need to subscribe.
One More Thing
Have you ever thought, "You know what would be great? If my audience could promote my course for me!"? Well, of course it's as simple as them sharing the link... but what if you want to reward them for their help?
