Sell Courses Online Using Stripe
Let your learners skip the shopping cart and check out quickly with the Stripe integration for LearnDash for selling courses on WordPress sites.
LearnDash’s Stripe integration is the perfect solution for course creators with only a few courses that need a quick and easy payment system. It’s not just another payment gateway, it comes with features like automatic user creation and enrollment, Paypal compatibility, and lightbox overlays. Plus, we’ve added a few more necessary features to make selling your courses simpler than ever.
Benefits of Using Stripe With LearnDash
There was a time when you could only use Stripe with LearnDash if you had a third-party shopping cart, like WooCommerce. But we’re always growing and making our products better to give you and your learners the best course platform experience. We’ve added a few new features to make using Stripe more beneficial to you.
Here’s a quick look at some of the best reasons to use Stripe to sell your LearnDash courses.
Automatic user creation and enrollment
Your learners can get started faster with the automatic user creation and enrollment feature. Once a payment is complete, a user account is automatically created and your learner is enrolled in the course.
Coupon support is one of the latest features. You’re now able to create coupons to be used at checkout without needing to use one of the four major shopping cart add-ons.
Free trial support
Free trial offerings are a great way to increase your number of signups. Allow prospective learners to try now and pay later by simply checking out with the Stripe integration.
Automatically retries and recaptures payments
Never worry about failed payment again. Stripe will automatically update saved cards, send emails after a failed payment occurs, and retry the payment at various strategic times.
Sell courses in bundles via group memberships
Now you can increase your sales by offering your learners’ course bundles. The Stripe integration lets you group your courses while offering a seamless checkout experience. You can add courses or access to non-LearnDash pages as well.
3D Secure V2
3D Secure V2 are new security protocols that affect payment authorizations. If you’re super techy, you can learn more about it here.
Lightbox overlay capabilities
Keeping learners on your site is super important for their learning experience. The lightbox overlay allows learners to stay on your site while making their purchase securely through Stripe.
How To Configure Stripe With LearnDash
