Use Crowdcast for your online courses or workshops and get paid.

We've made it super easy to set a ticket price for any Crowdcast event. On the Starter, Lite and Professional plans, there is a 5% transaction fee + stripe's processing fee of 2.9% + 30¢. On the Business plan, there is a 2% transaction fee + stripe's processing fee of 2.9% + 30¢. 

When setting up an event, a host can charge a fixed or sliding scale amount per event. This option can be found at the bottom of the basic info page:
