Why creators are making the switch.

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?

Everything you need to standout

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.

Modern, beautiful, and mobile-friendly

Whether your customers are using desktop or mobile, you course will always look the same: modern and beautiful. Your customers can also access your course directly on your website, which keeps your branding consistent.

Set your own prices and keep what you earn

Why give up your sales to Udemy, 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.
