Pricing & Payments 

When creating Submitted Content available for purchase on aptLearn Limited, it is mandatory that you create one free course; only then you’ll be prompted to select a base price for your subsequent submitted contents from a list of available price tiers. Alternatively, you may choose to offer your Submitted Content for free.

When a student purchases your Submitted Content, we calculate the gross amount of the sale as the amount received by aptLearn Limited from the student. From this, we subtract any Transaction Taxes to calculate the net amount of the sale. Revenue share will be 20% of the Net Amount less any applicable deductions, such as student refunds. If we change this payment rate, we will provide you 7 days’ notice using prominent means, such as via email or by posting a notice through our Services. aptLearn Limited makes all instructor payments in NGN regardless of the currency with which the sale was made. aptLearn Limited is not responsible for your foreign currency conversion fees, wiring fees, or any other processing fees that you may incur. Your revenue report will show the sales price (in GBP) and your converted revenue amount (in NGN).

Until we make changes to these terms, an instructor’s highest amount chargeable per course is 20GBP. It may be lesser; however, if instructors feel their course is comprehensive enough to charge more, they may reach out to our support team for further discussion. Any course with pricing above the stated price without a prior conversation with aptLearn Limited shall be subjected to rejection.

Payment

aptLearn Limited pays out Instructor earnings on the 28th of every month. For an instructor to be eligible for payout, they must have accrued 100GBP or its local currency equivalence.
