About Thinkific ‑ Online Courses

Join the 50,000+ entrepreneurs already monetizing their expertise.

With over 100 million courses taken by eager students, adding an online course to your Shopify store is a no-brainer for attracting more customers and expanding your revenue streams.

Online courses add an additional source of revenue to your business, with significantly better margins than physical goods. There’s no shipping, storage or inventory management.

If you’re already selling knowledge products (like eBooks or guides), more in-depth courses are a natural addition to your product offering.

Courses are also great for building loyalty with your audience—they differentiate you from your competition so you can better retain your customers and sell more.

Courses can also help you grow your audience and move them closer to purchase. They’re a great next step from content like YouTube videos or blog posts

Whether you’re educating 10 students or 10 million, feel confident that you’ve got easy-to-learn technology coupled with incredible support.

Courses bring value to almost any type of online store

For example:

  • Add a course on your skincare regimen to your beauty store
  • Add a workout class to your fitness equipment store
  • Add an instructional course to your drone store
  • Add a styling course to your fashion store
  • Add a course with more in-depth training to your ebook store

Salti

While it's a decent platform to host a course and has good capabilities, the customer service is appalling. Replies are condescending, they don't provide reasonable solutions to my issues (in one case, telling me to delete the app in order to stop being charged - without providing the correct instructions to downgrade to the free version).
I've since been charged when I shouldn't have been (I had to upgrade to a basic plan to enrol students as it didn't integrate seamlessly with shopify). I had heard great things about it, however their customer service needs improving immensely.

Transformation Academy

I have been using Thinkific to host my online courses (70+) for several years and was excited when they announced their integration with Shopify through this app. The courses integrate automatically and, although it did take some investigation and work to get it functioning, it now works great! The only Thinkific products that do not integrate automatically are "bundles" and memberships. I used Zapier to get those products integrated. I am thankful for this app so that I would not have the time or expense of using Zapier to do all of the product integrations. Using Shopify for my online store and shopping cart has made it easier for my customers to enroll in multiple products during one checkout, which has massively impacted my repeat purchases. If you're using Thinkific to host your courses and you want a more robust store and checkout experience for your customers, I highly recommend this app.

Jazzduetshop

I have a Youtube educational channel of 225k subs. (jazzduets) and have worked hard to build a solid positive trustworthy reputation. Thinkific has hurt this reputation with my VIP customers. Let me explain. This is lamentable to say but my nightmares started when I started selling my online courses on shopify with the Thinkific integration. The integration does work not seamlessly. Customers do not get the automatic emails, so they get infuriated at paying $300 dollars for the course but cannot access it immediately, so I have to enroll many manually! As well, when I add a new course, sometimes it appears in the shopify backend and other times it does not!
The support at Thinkific has been the worse that I have experienced in 4 years of e commerce. I have sent the support many emails, and still have not had my problem solved. They are very slow in getting back. I was asked for access to my store a few weeks ago and can see that they have still yet to log in. It seems there is a programming error that they are unable or unwilling to address. I cannot therefore recommend shopify with Thinkific.
------------------------ My response to your october 21 response----
FIRST, I cannot see how your team could have addressed and resolved my problem as you contest. You asked for permission to access my store, which I agreed to, but I can see that you have still have never logged in , even after my complaint. SECOND
I have wasted many hours trying to work this out (8 months so far!!!) I have upset clients and a damaged reputation.
THIRD - I am now looking for a better platform with an integration that works and with a support that does not pass me from person to person as you have done, wasting my time further.
