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. 

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

  • AUD
  • MYR
  • SGD
  • USD

 


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

Click on Edit.

Select the Paid option underneath Enrolment Cost, set your course fee, and click Save if you do you do not wish to allow learners to pay via the iOS app store. 

Note: The Paid option is only available for Public classes.

If you would also like to allow learners 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 in 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 learners 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!


For course providers/institutions using OpenLearing’s payment gateway, OpenLearning collects all learners' enrolment fees on the course creators’ behalf and then transfers the funds to course creators on a monthly basis

Before you start collecting enrolments in a paid course, you need to email support@openlearning.com your payment details such as your PayPal email address (preferably as no transaction fee incurred at the moment) or bank account details where you would like to receive the earnings.

Funds are transferred to your nominated account within 10-15 days after the month-end. You will receive an email notification with details of payment after the funds' transfer has been affected. (Please note, in cases where there are recurring monthly enrolments or voluminous enrolments, we will provide the course earning schedule for your reconciliation and then arrange payment upon the receipt of your invoice.)

  • I understand that you can have more than one paid class within a course; however, can you have multiple courses with paid classes running simultaneously?
