The pricing of an online course platform like LearnWorlds is always an important part of the decision making process for course creators.
And understanding how it breaks down and compares to other popular platforms can make a big difference!
LearnWorlds is one of our top rated online course platforms and after staring at their pricing table, you may still have a lot of questions.
Some of these can only be answered by experienced users, which may not be you if you’re just getting started.
This is why we’ve decided to break it all down in a digestible article for you!
LearnWorlds Pricing Overview
Let’s start by a quick look at the difference packages and pricing LearnWorlds offers:
- Starter Plan – $29/month ($24/mo paid annually)
- Pro Trainer – $99/month ($79/mo paid annually)
- Learning Center – $299/month ($249/mo paid annually)
Now the good news is that you can try any of these plans for 30 days free of charge!
Beyond just getting more features with each plan upgrade, there are some fundamental differences between these that could be a deal maker.
And there are some things that might not make sense to you just by reading this pricing table, so let’s break down exactly what you get for each of these plans:
LearnWorlds Starter Plan
This is the teaser plan, like what most other popular online course platforms have, with the bare minimum of what you need to get started.
This may be enough if you’re just wanting to get a simple few pages setup and take payment for your first program.
Here is the gist of what you need to know if you’re on this plan:
- There is a $5 transaction fee, on top of what the payment gateway will charge (Stripe, Paypal,etc.)
- You only get to build 3 landing pages and won’t have the full website feature the platform offers
- You can only do on-off charges and not recurring subscription or payment plans
Who is this for: mostly for beginner course creators that are still in the testing/validation phase, but will want to move away and scale soon!
LearnWorlds Pro Plan
This is the most popular plan and as we’ll see later, this roughly gets up to the price range we see most other platforms offering.
In a nutshell, you’re unlocking the most standard feature of Learnworlds without the advanced stuff:
- No limit on pages, funnel and pricing options
- Unlocking the affiliate program feature
- More teaching and learning tools to build engagement in your course
- Ability to integrate with any external platform via Zapier
Who is this for: This is pretty much where most course creators using LearnWorlds will land and ever need!
LearnWorlds Learning Center
The highest plan allows for more customization and very specific needs.
It is quite a big price jump from the Pro plan, mainly because of some of the fancy feature you get access to:
- White labelling options for agencies or B2B companies
- The very cool interactive video with in-video actions and editing from the platform
- SSO and more advanced integrations with external platforms via API
Who is this for: this is for either big corporation needing advanced integrations with their current system or agencies. Most course creators will be just fine on the Pro plan!
How Does Learnworld Pricing Compare with Competitors?
When comparing online course platform pricing, it’s important to compare apples to apples.
Without going too much into the feature details, see our full review for that, LearnWorlds is not an all-in-one platform but a funnel and course-only one.
And even comparing it to platforms in the same category, there are some differences to take into account beyond pricing…
That being said let’s take a quick look at how the other most popular platforms compare:
How does LearnWorlds Pricing compare to Teachable?
Teachable is the most popular online course platform and also a course-only tool, so it’s a good comparison to LearnWorlds.
The main difference between the two platforms is the fact that LearnWorlds is much better suited to build a website than Teachable.
Teachable offers a 14 days free trial and 3 pricing plans:
- Basic – $29/month billed annually (or $39 paid monthly)
- Pro – $99/month billed annually(or $119 paid monthly)
- Business – $249/month billed annually ( or $299 paid monthly)
Teachable actually has a very similar plan and pricing structure as LearnWorlds!
So it wouldn’t be a big factor to consider to choose between the two platforms...
How does LearnWorlds Pricing compare to Kajabi?
We mentioned that it’s important to compare what’s comparable, but Kajabi is such a popular online course platform that we have to mention it here!
The main difference between the two platforms is that Kajabi is an all-in-one platform and therefore also offers an email marketing and automation system, which LearnWorlds doesn’t.
Kajabi offers a 30 days trial (partner-deal only!) and 3 plans:
- Basic Plan – $149/month ($119/mo paid annually)
- Growth Plan – $199/month ($159/mo paid annually)
- Pro Plan – $399/month ($319/mo paid annually)
Clearly on the higher end of the scale, but again Kajabi undeniably comes with more features loaded and caters to slightly different needs than LearnWorlds.
See our in-depth review to compare the two here.
How does LearnWorlds Pricing compare to Thinkific?
Just like Teachable, Thinkific is another very popular course-only platform that’s good to compare with LearnWorlds.
Even more so relevant, since Thinkific also offers great tools for people wanting to build a full website on the platform.
Thinkific offers a Free Plan and 3 other pricing plans:
- Free (no transaction fee)
- Basic – $39/month billed annually (or $49 paid monthly)
- Start – $74/month billed annually(or $99 paid monthly)
- PreGrowmier – $149/month billed annually(or $199 paid monthly)
Here again, very similar pricing options with the most popular plan at $74/mo, see the full details of Thinkific pricing here.
LearnWorlds Pricing FAQs
If you’ve skipped to the end of this article or still have some remaining questions, here is a bit of a summary and last thoughts on LearnWorlds pricing!
Q: What’s the best plan for me?
Taking into account everything we’ve seen so far, picking the best plan for you depends on your situation.
Here is our thoughts:
If you’re just getting started and need to set up a quick funnel and product to see if there is a real demand, then you might get away with the Starter plan.
But pretty quickly, you should aim to upgrade to the Pro plan because that’s really where the fun happens and you unlock the important features LearnWorlds has to offer to course creators.
If you’re a big corporation or agency and need the greatest access and integration capabilities, then you can go with the Learning center plan.
Q: Is there a transaction fee?
Yes, but only on the Starter plan at 5%.
This is on top of the payment gateway fee you’ll pay… (around 1.5%)
Which is another reason to quickly upgrade to the Pro plan, especially if you’re making more than 11 sales a month which would, alone, cover the difference.
Q: What else do I need to pay for?
LearnWorlds has a lot to provide but as a course creator there will be a few other things that you need.
Specifically, an email marketing system which costs around $30-$50 a month depending on your list size. Mailerlite and ConvertKit are actually free up to 1,000 subscribers.
Unless you need advanced funnel or cart features, this really should be the only big expense you’ll need to add on top of LearnWorlds fee!
Q: Is there a free plan or free trial to get started?
LearnWorlds does not offer a free plan but does have one of the longest free trials in the industry!
You can get started using the platform for 30 days, free of charge
The easiest way to see which plan is a good fit for you and exactly what you get, is to get your hands dirty...
