How do I set up a paid class and when do I receive course earnings?


This article explains how to set up a pay-to-enrol class. 

Courses enrolments can be charged in one of the following currencies:

  • AUD
  • MYR
  • SGD
  • USD

Depending on the currency and payment method, there may be a processing fee from PayPal, Braintree or MOLPay ranging from 2.3%-4.5% .

Go to Course Setup > General and scroll down to Classes in Your Course.

Click on Change Class.


Select the Paid option underneath Enrolment Cost, set your course fee and click Save if you'd like to end here.

If you would also like to allow students to pay for your course via the iOS app store there are a couple more steps to follow.

By default, paid courses are not available for purchase via iOS devices. This is because Apple has special guidelines around the way content and services are priced on their store. You can learn more about this on their website here.

Therefore, if you would like your course to be available for purchase via iOS devices, you must set up a price that is within their pricing structure. (e.g. $ 19.99, not $ 20, etc) The next two steps will instruct you on how to set this up.

To set up your paid course for iOS, tick the box next to Allow students to discover and pay for my course through the iOS app store.


Once that box is ticked, a new section will appear beneath it prompting you to choose your iOS pricing tier. Toggle the menu in order to choose one.


Don't forget to click Save once you're done!
