In this article, we will have an in-depth look at different features of Teachable.
Let’s first start with its pricing plans.
This is how much Teachable’s annual plan costs.
If you decide to pay on a monthly basis, this will be your fee.
Basic plan includes access to unlimited students, 5% transaction fee, Instant payouts, and 2 admin level-users, among other things.
Pro plan comes with everything in basic as well as no transaction fees, 5 admin level-users, graded quizzes, advanced reports, and many more.
Business plan offers everything from the lower-priced plans, along with 20 admin level-users, advanced theme customization, group coaching calls, etc.
These are some of the features that are included in all plans:
- Unlimited video
- Unlimited hosting
- Integrated payment processing
- Lecture comments
- Unlimited courses
- Basic quizzes
- No fees on free courses
- Value-added tax for EU
With Teachable, you are given three templates when creating a course.
Blank template. You start with nothing and build a course the way you want.
Mini-course. You can create a brief course to build your authority and audience
Standard course. You will create an in-depth course that provides a lot of value for your students.
This is an example of how your course area will look when you start your course creation process.
You can add as much lectures as you need to complete your course.
Teachable also allows you to easily set a pricing plan for your course.
There are four options for the pricing plan:
- One-Time purchase
- Payment plan
With Teachable’s subscription plan, you can provide an optional free trial.
When you create course content, you can also utilize the drip feature to make your lectures available over a period of time after your student enrolls. But your plan needs to be basic or higher to access this feature.
This feature is useful if you don’t want to overwhelm your students with too much content, or if your students need to follow lectures in order.
Some course creators also prefer to drip their content to prevent people from stealing all of their content and requesting a refund.
You can also create coupons for your courses. This further incentivizes students to take the plunge and enroll in your course.
Statistics show 85% of Americans use coupons, and 93% of U.S. shoppers say discounts play an important role in their purchasing decision.
Coupons are especially effective at making people take action when they’ve visited your checkout page, but didn’t purchase.
Another nice feature of Teachable is that it allows you to bundle courses.
For example, let’s say you have different courses on different programming languages, including Java, Python, and Ruby.
If it costs $20 each to purchase the course, you can bundle them together, so your students can buy all of them for $50.
This allows your students to get a better deal at a lesser price, and there’s no additional work on your part to distribute your courses, so it’s a win-win situation.
Advanced Course Reports
With this feature, you are able to view video engagement data, leaderboard, quiz grades, and many more.

- Engagement – The video percentage watched by your students on average
- Play rate – The percentage of students who click your video and actually watch

With Teachable, you also have the option to offer one-on-one coaching on the platform. The software makes it easy for you to maintain a relationship with your student by giving you tools to manage scheduling time, host video calls, and provide assignments.
One way you can implement coaching to your students is to offer it as an upsell. Teachable offers two ways to provide upsells, which include upsells within lectures, or upsells in thank you pages.
To include upsell from your lecture, you need to go to the “Curriculum” and click “Add Upsell.”
Alternatively, you can also add an upsell in a thank you page with a page editor 2.0.
Teachable allows you to easily integrate with third-party apps, such as AWeber, Infusionsoft, Convertkit, Zapier, Mailchimp, and many more.
You can go to their integration dashboard if you want to integrate with other apps.
With a free plan, you will be able to integrate with Google Analytics and Sumo. But you will need to upgrade to paid plans if you want to have access to all of the options available.
Another great feature of Teachable is that it allows you to create an affiliate program for your course.
In other words, you can recruit affiliates to promote your course and get new students for your course for free, with no additional work.
The caveat is that this feature is only available for the professional plan and up.
If you want to activate an affiliate program, you can click on “Students.”
You can then select any of your student as an affiliate by activating the affiliate program for them.
Also, you can view details of affiliate activity by accessing the affiliate dashboard.
These details include:
- Commission rate – The percentage your affiliate will receive from each sale.
- Affiliate code – A personal code that you can give to your affiliates, so they can get credit for referring new students.
- Cookie period – How long the cookie will be active for your affiliates to be eligible to receive credits.
Overall, Teachable provides all of the necessary features you need to create a quality online course.
Unlike some of the other online course platforms, you are able to try some of their features for free.
