Pricing Choices for your Courses

In this guide, you will find out all the necessary steps you need to take so that you can set your course pricing.

Payment Gateways

In order to start receiving payments for your courses, firstly, you need to connect your LearnWorlds site with a payment gateway. Subscription-based sales or payment plans are supported only through the Stripe payment gateway. 

You can find out more about the Payment Gateways supported in the following article:

Select a Course Price

Setting the right price tag on your products can be quite challenging. Picking a very high price could cause a loss in sales. Οn the other hand, selecting a very low price could not produce profits. There is always that sweet spot where your course price is attractive to your users and where you earn enough money by selling your courses.

For that case, you can consult our Blog article:

How To Set the Right Price for Your Online Course

Course Pricing Options

In LearnWorlds, there are multiple course pricing options to choose from. First of all, you can pick among others the type of the course, if you wish to be free or paid. You are able to offer a course via subscription or payment plan, bundle, or share a coupon for a discounted price.

You can find more information, in the following articles:

How to Create Subscription Plans

How to Sell your Courses and Bundles with Installments 

Free course

Free courses (available in our Pro Trainer plans or higher) are an excellent way to attract new customers to your school and give them a glimpse of your work.

With paid courses, you can set a fixed price for your course and charge the users upon enrollment.

Subscription plans/Installments

Selling your courses through Subscriptions or Installments (available in our Pro Trainer plans or higher) means that users will perform an automated recurring payment (in the interval of your choice). 

If you decide to include installments in your Products, you can enable the extended enroll/pricing button in your Course Pricing settings in order to display all the available options. Otherwise, users will be able to choose their preferred pricing option on the Payment Page.

One-Off Payment

The one-off payment is essentially a one-time charge. The user will purchase the product and they will pay one time for it. This payment is exactly the opposite of the subscription payment which is a recurring payment.

Note: All your paid courses will be eligible to be purchased as one-off purchases unless you set your school to subscriptions only. You can find out more on how to create a subscription-only school here.


Powerful upsell offers that include a number of relevant courses at discounted prices. Bundles (available in our Pro Trainer plans or higher) can be used in marketing or upselling (persuading a client to buy more of your online courses or buy a more expensive one). You can find out more on how to create and customize your bundles, in our respective article.

Promotions / Coupons

A voucher entitles the holder to a discount for a particular product/ course/ bundle/ subscription. Coupons promote a solid offer to a potential customer and encourage impulse buying (not planned buying behavior). They can be a strong marketing tool to promote your courses both online and offline and a good way to upsell, which can be an alternative to bundles or used to promote a bigger bundle.

With coupons, you can both attract new clients or re-activate old ones by buying new online courses. Coupons can also be used to offer a paid course as a free one to a select few influencers, attracting reviews and word of mouth for your online course. Moreover, coupons can be used in order to give free access to your private courses. You can find more information on selling your private courses, as well as generating their payment page links with coupons applied here.

How to Set an Expiration Date for your Courses

Last but not least, you can set an expiration date for your courses and offer them at a specific interval time.
