Why creators are making the switch from Skillshare to Podia.

You’re in control

While Skillshare owns all your customers, data (and most of your revenue!), Podia gives you full control over your content, customers, and data. Oh, and did we mention we don’t take any fees?

Keep every dollar you earn

Instead of earning a fraction of an earnings pool, with Podia, you sell your products directly to your audience, you you keep every dollar you earn. Creators switching to Podia have gone from earning a few dollars a month on marketplaces to earning thousands a month in the driver's seat of their own business.

Stand out from the crowd

Instead of getting lost in a sea of competitors, you can sell your course on your very own storefront, which comes with a free SSL certificate and custom domain name. We also take care of web hosting, so you can start selling ASAP.

Set your own prices and keep what you earn

Why give up your sales to Skillshare, when you can keep every dollar you earn with Podia? We take zero fees and give you complete control over your content, customers, data, and more.

Podia allowed me to launch a custom storefront for my fantasy console, Pixel Vision 8, in no time at all! What I loved most about Podia was how it enabled a unique monetization model around one-off purchases, monthly membership subscriptions, and handcrafted courses.
