The flexible way to earn more...

...while providing real value to your students. Digital downloads make it simple.

Ramp up quickly

If you’ve already created content, you can start selling downloads immediately. In fact, you can even include direct links to external content (for example, a template in Canva or Google Sheets).

Grow your impact

Downloads are a great way to grow your audience, attract new students, and offer a wider variety of price points. Trying offering a “free sample” as a lead magnet.

Ramp up quickly
Add value to existing products

Drive practical learning

Downloads can enhance the content of your other products. For example, imagine you have a personal finance course—you can create a customizable budget spreadsheet to help students apply what they learn.

Earn more with each sale

Increase the value of each student by using downloads in bundles or as order bumps or upsells. They’re another way to expand your offerings and revenue streams.

How many digital downloads can I sell on a free plan?

You can create and sell one digital download when you join for free. But if you want to sell more, join a paid plan on Teachable.

Do you charge transaction fees?

Teachable lets you focus on your business, not on fees, with pricing that scales as you do. We only charge a 10% + $1 per transaction fee on free plans.

Creators on a Basic plan pay a 5% transaction fee.
