Stripe Sellable Course Type

If you are selling your products through Stripe, then not to worry! You can also create an upsell course for this which will be a very similar process to creating a Chargify sellable course.

First, select Create/Edit Courseware from the Super User Dashboard, and then click on “+ New Course”. Click on the “Show Advanced Options” button and then under the “Course Type” drop menu select “Sellable Course”

Under the “What’s Included” section you can include key features that come with your product and in the “Full Description” section is where you have a little more flexibility to play with the different fonts, colors, sizes, etc. You can also add custom html here if you wish.

Make sure to Include a thumbnail/course image (960x540px) and a hero image (1440x300px) as these will also be front facing to users. You can either choose to upload an image file or specify a path from an image that has already been uploaded into your Media Library.

Additionally you can add a preview video – however this part is optional.

Next, in the Ecommerce section, enter the price of the product you wish to sell and then from the “Purchase Type” drop menu, select “Stripe Product”. At this point you should see three more fields show up – one for the “Stripe ID”, one for the “Stripe Data ID”, and another for the “Location ID”. The Location ID is optional, that is, if you need to move a user into a new location after a purchase is made through the sellable.

From here, open a new tab and navigate back to the Super User Dashboard. From the Super User Dashboard, select Integration Management, choose your Stripe account, and edit the product created specifically for this sellable course type.

Scroll to the bottom where you’ll find the code snippet for the Stripe widget then copy/paste the “Data ID” into the “Stripe Data ID” field and copy/paste the “Widget ID” into the “Stripe ID” field in the previous tab. You can also add additional pricing here by clicking on “+ Add Purchase Button” where it could be the same product only offered at a discounted price, but it isn’t required.

Once you’ve completed the Ecommerce section, click on the “Save+Continue” button and that should take you to the “Settings” section – here you can leave the default settings as they are as you don’t need to make any adjustments. Click Save+Continue once more then you can publish and assign the course to any desired content role(s) and location(s) just like with any other standard course

Now, all that’s left is to test it out! Things may look slightly different, but below is an example of how that might look in the Training Center:

You’ll notice a blue price tag that appears in the upper left of the course card (this helps to distinguish the sellable courses apart from the standard courses) click on it, and that should take you to the purchase page which should appear like the following:

Upon clicking on any of the call to action buttons, the Stripe widget will be presented in a pop up.

Immediately you’ll see that the sellable is working as intended when the user’s name and registered email address auto-populates in the first step of the checkout form. This is the expected behavior for any sellable course type as you don’t want the system to create duplicate accounts for the same user with every purchase.
