Using our Online School solution, there are two ways to get paid:

  1. The pricing page on your website - Take payment on your own site and manually manage class credits

  2. The LearnCube pricing page - Once student logs in, the student can purchase via the payment gateway

Option 1: Your website 

Take payment on your own site and manually manage class credits. This is an example of how one of our favourite customers manages their student plans:

You take payment via your own shopping cart and add the class credits to the student's account. 

The advantage is you have full control of how your pricing page looks and works.  It means you can promote a free trial (very popular in the b2c space), experiment with pricing quickly.

The disadvantage is that the payment takes place outside of our platform, there is no way for us to know that a payment has taken place, so your admin team would need to manually add/manage student credits.

Personally, we highly recommend this for startups that will likely want to experiment with pricing and will want to have as many options of connecting/marketing to their prospects. 

Option 2:  The LearnCube pricing page


You can also choose to send or redirect new students to your LearnCube pricing page.

  • The student clicks Signup.

  • Your student creates an account.

  • Your student chooses the plan they want.

The student then chooses the most convenient payment option for them and pays through the LearnCube payment gateway. 

We work with the two most popular and user-friendly payment options:

Once your student has paid, they are logged into the student dashboard where they can see clearly the number of classes they have purchased and used.

The next question is:

What do you want to happen when a student uses up their initial class credits and wants to purchase additional plans or tries to schedule a class with 0 credits left?

  1. LearnCube sends that student back to the pricing page on your website? > See Option 1.

  2. LearnCube sends that student to the LearnCube payment gateway? > See what the LearnCube pricing page could look like.
