Creating a course is entirely free for our instructors and as long as the course is open to the public there are never any maintenance fees. If you'd prefer not to have the course available publicly, we do offer the option of private courses for your team or organization, which does require a small monthly maintenance fee.
For paid courses, you keep 40% of the revenue (minus payment fees) for every student who takes your course. On top of that, you can earn an extra 20% of the revenue when you refer students to the course through our affilaite program.
HeatSpring handles all customer service, payment processing and hosting fees, and gives you access to the full platform to build and run your courses.
