August 10th, 2017 LearnDash Tips

When conversions matter (and they almost always do), then consider selling your courses with SamCart!

If you are selling your LearnDash courses then this new (free) integration is for you!

SamCart is a hosted shopping cart that was built from the ground-up to improve your conversions and increase your revenue. If you haven’t heard of them then you should really check out what they are doing.

SamCart boasts some of the most attractive checkout templates available, but that’s just the beginning. They also have some pretty amazing features that you can leverage for selling your LearnDash courses. Some of my favorites include:

  • Multiple payment gateway support
  • Sell one-time purchase or subscriptions
  • One-click upsells
  • Order ‘bumps’ to increase per-product revenue
  • Payment plan option (i.e. allow one-time price or payments spread-out over time)
  • Save the sale with the abandoned cart feature
  • Exit pop-ups
  • Built-in affiliate platform
  • In-depth reporting

This is really just scratching the surface. Head on over to their site to read more about what SamCart can do.

What is really neat though is that they just released a new pricing tier. You can start using SamCart for just $19/mo (previously the lowest plan was $99/mo). In addition, you can try it free for 30-days to see if it’s right for you.

So now that you know a little more about SamCart let’s talk about the add-on (which brings all of this goodness to LearnDash). 🙂

Add-On Features

Automatic account creation: After successful purchase the customer gets a user account created automatically created on your WordPress site where LearnDash is installed.

Easily map courses: Simply select the courses you want to associate to the SamCart product from the “Associated Courses” menu. That’s it!

Associate one, or multiple courses: Supports one or multiple courses being mapped to a product which allows you to create course bundles.

Works with any SamCart payment gateway: Choose any payment gateway offered by SamCart and your customers will be enrolled into the course after successful payment.

Works with Subscriptions: Charge customers a recurring fee for course access.

Automatic course access removal: Removes users from courses when refunded or canceling a subscription.

How It Works

After installing and activating the integration, there will be a SamCart Products tab located under LEARNDASH LMS > SETTINGS.

Click “Add  New Samcart Product” and you will be presented with the screen above.

Here you will need to enter your Product ID (found in your Samcart dashboard). Next, select the desired courses you wish to associate with the Samcart product.

The last step is to copy the notification URL. You will need to paste this exact URL into your Samcart product notification URL settings.

You’re done! Now when someone purchases your product in SamCart they get a user created and enrolled into your courses!

Where to Download

This is a free add-on created by LearnDash. It is available for download on the support site.

Until next time!

THANK YOU Justin and team LearnDash! I’ve been using SamCart for a year now and it’s been a positive move. This integration seals the deal for me to migrate all my courses over to LearnDash. Keep going!

Glad you like it Kyle! 🙂

Thanks for describing platform where we can sell our courses..We have various IT and Certification training programs.
Thanks for advising us a wonderful platform.

Thanks for the info! I’m not sure where you got the $19 per month fee, it clearly states $99 per month for the lowest price (month to month).
