There are a number of reasons why you may want to give a Course away for free.
The most common reason is to use it as a lead-generation mechanism for smaller Courses to attract students who you later hope will purchase a Course from you.
How to Make a Course Available for Free
- First, click on the Course you want to edit
- Go to Step 2: Set Course Payment Options and open it
- Make sure the Single Payment tab active, and make sure you don't have any prices set in the 2 sections underneath:
- When you view the Xperiencify Order Form for your Course, you should see that payment information isn't required to gain access. (To get your Order Form working, you'll need to connect your Stripe account. Here are some instructions for how to do that.)
Note: you don't have to use our Order Form to give away a free Course.
When adding new Students to Courses using our API we don't receive or validate any payment instructions from you. We simply add Students to Courses on your behalf, and let you take care of the money. So in that sense, when you use the API to add Students to Courses, it's your choice how you bill your Student, or whether you bill.
