I've tried a few learning platforms but the main reason I chose Podia is its beautiful & simple interface - it makes my admin work easy and makes my students' learning experience smooth & efficient. Win-win! Also, their support team is the best. They helped me out with everything, even on weekends.

I have finally found a platform that lets me sell my templates, courses and membership without having a gazillion plugins that always glitch or cost a ton of money. After trying almost every selling platform out there, Podia became a favorite super quickly because of how easy it is to start selling products beautifully. I love Podia for making such a beautiful and easy to use platform.
