Sell courses entirely outside Pathwright
To sell courses without a linked Stripe account, you'll need to use the following setup.
1. Collect payment outside of Pathwright using the means of your choice. This may be cash, check, PayPal, or an external sales page using one of a variety of ecommerce tools.
2. Invite your prepaid students to join a free private course, using the private invitation link.
- Your courses must be set to Invite-only (or Members-only) and Free for this to work correctly.
- You can send a private invitation link to your students by email or private message.
Note: on the Essentials Plan and above, sending the invitation by email may be automated with Zapier.
When students receive the link, they will be prompted to create an account or log in, and then they will be instantly enrolled in the course you invited them to.
Note: as our school subscription plans depend on Stripe, we are not able to support subscription plans for schools that exclusively use an alternate payment method.
Sell courses outside of Pathwright as alternative
It's possible that you use Stripe for most payments, but occasionally accept payment by other means. That's fine too.
For courses that are public and have a price listed, you will need to supply the pre-paid learner with a discount code for free access (must be administrator). Learn more here.
