Udemy vs Podia for online courses

Your business,your way

Podia is a Udemy alternative that gives you full control over your customers, data, and money, all on your own custom domain.

Best Udemy Alternative

You’re in control

While Udemy 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?
