See our disclaimer. As soon as someone purchased the course, it showed up right there, and the customer just had to click on it once… and it would start rolling. But to me, as someone who values simplicity over almost everything else, this just gave Thinkific a bit more of an edge. Another great thing about Teachable and Thinkific is that they give you really awesome help and support in terms of showing you how to do things.
You can easily learn how to set up your own courses from start to finish using the support threads, which include detailed instructions with photos that will guide you through every step. Both Teachable and Thinkific offer this, and it is very helpful. I give high marks to both companies for providing these tools and resources to their users. Both Thinkific and Teachable scored very high points in course customization. Within 20 to 30 minutes, it was completely possible in both platforms to have attractive products up and running with pretty minimal effort.
Neither of these systems are going to challenge you on a technical level, if that is something you are worried about. But once again, I just really loved how streamlined and easy Thinkific was in terms of how it connected to Samcart and how quickly customers could get to their courses. In researching what other people have to say about these two sites, there seems to be a strong inclination to say that Thinkific wins in site design tools and customization options, while Teachable wins with sales and marketing features.
There may be some small measure of truth to this, but I actually think that it all depends on how you look at it. But in my experience with it, I really felt like this was a matter of process. Thinkific and Teachable both have slightly different processes for building courses, importing media, and incorporating that media into a finished, stylized sales page or course.
I feel like both of the platforms do a great job. In the end, this really all comes down to trying them both out and figuring out which feels more natural for you. One thing to keep in mind is that Teachable uses a base template that basically all of its users start with… while Thinkific gives you access to a collection of very nice templates that you can choose from.

For example, they have themes for fitness courses, blogging revenue courses, business coaching… etc. Whatever you might be trying to build, you will likely be able to find an actual theme for it on Thinkific, which is really cool. You can create beautiful courses with both of these platforms. I think that you can get the job done with either one. It just depends on how you want to go about building the pages and courses, because both builders find different ways to incorporate media and lay out the different components. At a certain level, both Thinkific and Teachable are free in terms of transaction fees.
But at lower levels, this is not necessarily the case. By the time you get to the Pro version, transaction fees are no longer an issue on Teachable either. But at the Free and Basic level, you are charged fees on Teachable. If you are trying to build a business, at some point, you are going to want to sell courses. And Thinkific seems to give you a slightly better deal on this with the Free version of their product than Teachable gives you. One of the best things about both of these platforms is that both give you the option to bootstrap your course startup with a free version that will help you to keep costs low as you try out the service.
But Thinkific gives a bit of an edge here by offering a completely free experience with zero transaction fees. Of course, you are really limited in what tools you can use and how many courses you can create… but this gives you the opportunity to work on your first course and figure out the system before you start paying a monthly fee. Teachable is almost as good as Thinkific… except that they do charge transaction fees on course purchases on their Free and Basic plans.
The good news here is that you only pay when you make a sale with the free version of Teachable. The bad news is that you have to pay when you make a sale , which seems to make Teachable slightly less desirable at the free level than Thinkific.

As you have probably guessed at this point, Thinkific really won out for me. I loved the page builder, I loved the course builder, I loved the themes, I felt that using it was incredibly easy, and I really loved the simplicity of it. But with that being said, it was a really neck and neck test in a lot of ways. I have great friends who use Teachable instead of Thinkific, and they love it, and it really works for them. For me, it really came down to that integration with Samcart and 1 click instead of 3 to get to the courses once you signed up for them.
The customer is the highest priority, and when you can make the experience easier and more user-friendly for them, you are giving yourself a pretty big boost. It is truly impossible to understand everything about a system based only on what other people have done or written. Reviews are super helpful, but they are not the gold standard.
Admittedly, I had no idea about how Samcart would work with either of these systems until I tried them myself. There are some good reviews out there, but I learned this through actually going through the motions of trying to create and sell courses as I tested the platform. Then I would have had to redesign all of those courses, move everything, and it would have just been kind of a mess. So use reviews during your process, but do not neglect testing out each platform yourself. Rather, I want you to take my experiences into account to help you make your own best choices for what would work the best for you in your business.
Everyone has different needs when it comes to a course creation platform. But it was important to me to figure out who would prefer each one of these platforms. Try Teachable For Free Here…. Hopefully this comparison has helped you to figure out which one of these platforms may work better for you.
Thinkific and Teachable both have their upsides… and though Thinkific ended up winning out for me, both are worth a test-drive, and they both offer quite a bit of value for the cost.

In regard to your post: I've been using teachable for about a month now.
My school actually did really well in its first month. This drove me to switch from the free trial to the premium — And I have to say Teachable's features and usability is good. However, their payout system and customer support is terrible. When you're not getting paid out , and not receiving customer support to sort it out, features and usability become moot — I wouldn't recommend anyone go for teachable.
I've been looking into Thinkific, but general user perception is that their customer support is almost like an additional revenue stream for them. Thats setting off a lot of red lights for me. There are no other options beyond self hosting it through WordPress that I use or recommend. I have found Thinkific's team to be extremely helpful but to be honest I have not had a single reason to mail them a customer support ticket beyond asking a couple of simple questions because their system seems to work flawlessly.
