Now you can charge money for membership to your community! Skool replaces your landing page, order form, merchant account, and everything else — it does everything, end-to-end, seamlessly. You add a price, share a link, get members, and make money. Watch the video to see how it works. Questions? Check out this Skool payments FAQ. Enjoy 🎉
@Sam Ovens makes sense. And the is no extra fee on the payout then? Ex: payout is 10,000$ (after the transaction fees of 2.9%+0.30), all the 10k$ will arrive on my USD bank account? Correct? I am asking because it looks quite surprising that this Stripe payout option wouldn't charge you anything for the transfer

I NEED YOUR HELP I am about to launch a free 5-day challenge that will lead to the high ticket programs that I have on Skool. The usual strategy is to do it in a FB group, and then close the group at the end of the challenge to increase show up rate. But I am really tempted to do it on Skool directly because I use my Skool group also for lead generation, but I am afraid that the engagement will be low because it's free and people are not used to skool (they would have to download the app etc ...) Does anyone have experience with something similar? Any suggestions?
Introducing the first paid community on Skool — "$1 Club". Its purpose: To demonstrate the paid community experience. For $1 /month you'll get to: 1. See what it's like to subscribe to a paid community (as a member) 2. See what it's like to sell a paid community (as an admin) 3. Be first in line to use the payments system (for your own community) Click here to join $1 Club. We don't expect you to pay $1 /month ongoing. You can cancel your subscription at any time with 1-click. We're doing this as a live demonstration of our payments system. See you on the other side!
@Sam Ovens Great feature! Just tested the 1$ community it's super nice Questions: - What percentage does Skool take for each pament? Is it dependant on the amount (like Stripe for example)? - Is it possible to have paying and non paying members in the same Skool group? I didn't really understand that from the demo - Is there admin access to all the invoices/receipts sent to a customer?
IM PUTTING THIS OUT AS AN ACCOUNTABILITY POST! MARK MY WORDS ON THIS.. We will make $500K/mo in the next 3-6 months or less with Skool ONLY.. At the moment we're doing $600K-$700K/mo with AppointmentSetterCom using IG/FB only but it's a total mess.. Everything is scattered among different platforms with our marketing strategies. Me and my lady who is also my business partner in this company are going to do 2 cool things over the next 7-14 days. We're going to build two low ticket courses, one for our B2C and one for our B2B. Here are my goals that I KNOW we will achieve in the next 3-6 months or less. 1. Make $500K/mo with our low ticket offer strategy for our B2C & B2B ON SKOOL ONLY.. 2. Make $10K/mo as a Skool Affiliate as we move fully onto the platform for marketing now too I'm already invested multi 6 figures into Skool and my next step is to also now truly use it as marketing platform for our companies because it fits so perfectly into what we're already doing. In the past we've already achieved these figures but then we used a Facebook Group where our DMs would go to spam, the course was on another platform and it was all scattered.. Now on Skool you'd land in primary, your emails land in primary, you can DM people WHILE they watch the course.. So we're now going to be building our LTOs and launch in the next 1-2 weeks. I'm grateful to be a part of this community and I'll be breaking down A to Z how we'll have achieved this goal once we've hit it in this community and using Skool ONLY. For now, this is just a post to hold myself accountable and use it as a future case study too for people who are on the fence of using Skool. Let's GO!
@Sam Ovens maybe just a "select option" that allows to select what "course" has access to that event? In that sense it will be like the classroom access, where an event is tied to different courses (which makes a lot of sense imo)
Is there any other way to collect emails other than relying on membership questions? The majority of leads I have bypass the membership questions - I do have zapier integration for those who do fill it out. Would be great if there was a way to collect it as they sign up or when prompted to upload pic and bio so it couldn't be bypassed. Is there anything in the pipeline here or does anyone have any suggestions to help?
1) It would be really useful to have the option to send a DM to multiple people, just like you can do it on WhatsApp or FB with a broadcast message. Going through the list 1 by 1 when I need to reach out to many members is super ineficient 2) Is there a plan to add something that allows us to know when members have read a message? Actually even a post? Skool being a new app, many people aren't used to it and it's a problem to not know if a message has been read @Sam Ovens @Sid Sahasrabuddhe
Now you can set access permissions for your events, just like courses. You can make events accessible to members at a level, or members with a course. You can set a cover image to personalize your events, and specify the link/address separate from the description so it shows/hides depending on the member's access. We renamed the "Calendar" tab to "Events" because it's the events that are important, and this new UI emphasizes the events instead of empty white space. We added a cool "LIVE" indicator too! Watch this video to see how this new feature works, and let us know what you think?
@Sam Ovens awesome! The multi select for allowing access to an event for people in different courses will be a game changer for me to streamline all the client support. That would beat everyone on the market instantly! + Calendar view option that you are discussing. From my opinion a default"event view" with a button to have the calendar view (which could have the "synch all with your Google/Apple calendar) would be the perfect solution
@Ted Carr depends on the model and events. For me it would make sense to have events that people could sign up for (i do live events) They are not courses, but they are still something that should be in the community For now I send people outside of skool but I'd @Sam Ovens wants to integrate that option it would be very good
Just sharing a concern about people that cold DM on Skool ... I have no problem getting prospecting DMs from owners or admins of a group I am part of, that's absolutely normal that they leverage their leads. However recently I am getting A LOT of messages from people from groups that have nothing to do with the groups ... Just like the old cold DM fishing in other FB groups I really wish Skool finds a way to minimize that spammy behavior because that defeats the purpose of Skool (a plateform to learn without being distracted). Does anyone experienced the same? Any ideas how to prevent this from happening?
I see what you are saying, but that's a very bad solution in general in my opinion for 2 reasons: - I want to receive DMs from admins when I am part of a group, just not from the rest of the people - People that join my group won't necessarily see that option, and in the same way I won't be able to message them when needed (prospecting or not) It just messes up with the purpose of Skool ...
Do we get all the email addresses and details of people who join our community? I need to own my list. If yes - then where - otherwise it would be a quite important feature request. If skool for any reason ever goes offline - or kicks me out or I want to switch platform - I need to be able to keep my community. This only works if I get the email addresses easily.
Is there a way to add a "Preview" video for a course in the classroom while keeping the course locked? Something like the group landing page that was added recently, or a "mini VSL" to sell the course more easily directly from the Classroom, this "preview" could also have a link to a payment gateway or a sales page If it doesn't exist yet, could it be added :)
Is there a way to see how invited a member once the invite has been accepted by the admins ? Currently I can only see who invited the member when the invite is pending. But it would make sense to keep this info in the history of the client when we click on their profile.
