Is there something like Gumroad for courses

I know there are platforms like Podia, Kajabi, Thinkific, and Teachable..
But..
Gumroad doesn't use your own payment processor. They use theirs and that's what I want.
Is there something that collects the money for you?
You can sell videos on Gumroad but it doesn't provide a good user experience.

Does this platform like this exist?

      Thanks for the link. I don't know Uscreen and I'm wondering if it collects payments on my behalf. The other ones use Stripe and Paypal (which unfortunately are not supported in my country)

      $19 per month plus 10% of sales. That's a lot!

        It’s far too much for such a small platform. You can probably get every one of your students a REPL.it premium subscription instead and come out cheaper.

      Yes! I heard Shaan Puri talk about this on the My First Million podcast. Looks great, but only for software development courses.

    I found a solution to my problem.

    Again my problem was that Gumroad is not an LMS 5learning management system).
    I need one like Teachable. But I can't use Stripe or Paypal (Country support issue).

    So the solution is:

    We use Gumroad as a payment page...

    Sales page -> payment page using Gumroad -> Zapier (Under the hood) > the students gets enrolled in teachable automatically (with Email only) -> A page that says check your email to set your teachable password -> Go to login -> Done

    I did a test with a demo teachable school, and it works.

    I think Udemy does this.

      Yep, but it's a marketplace. I need something more like teachable but that handles the payments on my behalf.

    With CourseMaker you can connect a paddle account (merchant of record) and they will then collect the money (and sort the sales taxes) for you.

    Are you looking for something like UScreen?

      Does Uscreen handle the payments on my behalf? I sent a question to the support. Have you used it?

      1. 1

        I have not used it as an admin. I'm pretty sure your clients can make purchases from their native payment system and you don't need to plug in your own.

    I would still go with gumroad. Depends on the type and style of your course.

    I sell through gumroad a course but its non linear. I link to my site.

    1. 1

      What do you mean by linking to your site?

    1. 1

      This doesn't seem to collect the payments for you. I can't use Stripe/Paypal so I need a tool that collects the money for me and transfers it once/month to my bank account.

    You can use https://jooseph.com for that but we don't host your video, you need to give an unlisted youtube link or vimeo link.

      Thanks but I'm looking for something that hosts the course

    You can check www.spayee.com

    They also require the course creator to set up own payment gateways as a default thing, however you can ask them to setup their own gateway.

    In the pricing page, FAQ section:

    QUOTE
    What happens if I cannot set up my own payment gateway?
    No issues, we will collect payment on your behalf and we will settle it up on a monthly basis. The settlement will be made after deducting payment gateway charges and taxes accordingly.

      Do they work with people outside of India? and is it trust worthy?
