Students have the option to purchase multiple seats to a priced course. You can limit the number of seats a student may purchase from the course publishing settings.

Additionally, if you have Live Training lessons and events in a course, you can limit the number of course registrations based on the available live training seats. 

  1. Publish a course using the steps in our Publishing a Course article.
  2. On the Domains page, select Published courses.
  3. On the next page, select the title of the Published Course to access the Publish Settings.
  4. Scroll down to the Purchase Settings and select the Add A Purchase Price box.
  5. Enter a price for the course (a course must be priced to enable checkout quantity).
  6. Enter a checkout quantity in the Maximum Checkout box (this will be 30 as default). 
  7. Select the Live Training - limit checkout quantity based on available seats? option to update the checkout quantity based on available live training seats. Screen_Shot_2020-06-01_at_6.57.51_PM.png

Live Training Student Experience

A student can only purchase and register for a course if seats to live training events are available.

  • The Checkout Quantity is enforced on the Purchase checkout page. 
  • The Checkout quantity is also updated based on the seats available for an event. For example, if the checkout quantity is set to five and a live event only has 3 seats available, the Checkout Quantity will limit a student to three seats. 

When any Live Training lesson in a course reaches the maximum number of seats:

  • Students are unable to purchase and register for the course.
  • The registration button is disabled and a message displays to alert users there are no seats available for purchase at this time.
