Podia vs. Teachable: What's right for me?

Great question! We obviously think we’re pretty great, but here’s an honest answer:

Both platforms allow you to sell online courses. Both give you landing pages, affiliate marketing, and helpful selling features like coupons, payment plans, and upsells.

But while Teachable is an online course platform, Podia is an all-in-one platform that replaces many tools for your business, including your website builder, email marketing platform, membership hosting platform, live chat tool, and much more.

The best platform choice comes down to what’s most important for you.

If you’re looking for an all-in-one platform that makes it simple to run your online business in one place, has world-class customer service, and is affordable whether you’re just starting out or growing fast, then we built Podia just for you.

If you need to run a school with multiple instructors, prefer to edit the HTML/CSS code of your site rather than use a no-code editor, and don’t mind needing separate platforms for the other parts of your business, we encourage you to give both platforms a try and decide for yourself!

Another thing to consider is where you expect your business to be a few months from today. If you’re just starting out, both Podia’s Mover plan and Teachable’s Basic plan give you an online course hosting platform for $39/mo and $29/mo, respectively. However, with Teachable’s 5% transaction fee, their plan will get more expensive soon after you begin making sales. And as your business grows and you want to unlock additional features, you’ll need to upgrade to their $119/mo and $299/mo plans. Meanwhile, Podia’s Shaker plan, which includes all of our platform features, costs only $79/mo and you’ll never need to upgrade to unlock the next stage of your business’ growth.
