Processing Payments and Selling Courses

Follow

Skilljar enables you to use your own payment gateway to process e-commerce transactions for any courses you sell. 

By setting up your own payment gateway, you will receive payment directly to your own account, according to your payment processors' terms and policies. You will also be able to manage any refunds for customers directly. In this article we'll cover:

  • What payment gateways are supported?
  • Connecting PayPal to my Skilljar account
  • Connecting Stripe to my Skilljar account 

 

What payment gateways are supported?

We support external payment gateways through:

  • Paypal - enables you to accept payment via Paypal
  • Stripe - enables you to accept all major credit cards

We highly recommend enabling both payment gateways; approximately 70% of course purchases have been via credit card, and 30% processed via PayPal. However, you only need to connect one gateway in order to begin taking payment.

Additionally, we support the following custom payment gateways:

To configure a custom payment gateway using one of the services listed above, please contact your Customer Success Manager or our team at support@skilljar.com.
