Common Inquiries Regarding Payment Procedures

    In this article, we will explore frequently asked questions, offering clear insights into various aspects, including payment methods and thresholds. Our aim is to equip you with comprehensive information to ensure you have everything you need.


    How much will I get paid?

    Multiple factors affect your earning potential. Your course generates revenue through a combination of certificate sales and ad revenue. Focusing on high-ranking tags (i.e., desirable subjects), hard skills and following Alison’s guidelines and pedagogy will help elevate your earning power. 


    What payment methods are available for receiving earnings?

    We offer various payment methods, including bank transfers and PayPal. Choose the method that suits you best during Invoice stage of the payment process. Learn more about the payment process here.


    How often are payments processed?

    Payments are typically processed on a quarterly basis.


    Is there a minimum threshold for payments?

    Yes, there is a minimum payout threshold of €250. Once your earnings reach this threshold, you will receive a payout in the next payment cycle.


    Can I track my earnings and payment history?

    Absolutely! The platform provides a transparent and detailed earnings dashboard. You can track your earnings on your Financial dashboard when you log into your Publishing Tool account.


    Are there any fees or deductions from my earnings?

    Alison only applies development cost deductions to courses published through Content Assistants (formerly Assisted Publishing). For payments made via PayPal or Bank Transfer, Alison ensures the full payment amount is transferred, covering any associated charges. It's important to note that certain banks and PayPal accounts not configured for Euro payments may impose additional fees, such as currency conversion charges. Alison, however, is not accountable for these supplementary deductions.


    How is the pricing for my courses determined?

    You cannot set the price for the certificates for your own courses. The prices are set based on the following factors: 

    • Whether the course is classed as a certificate or diploma.

    • Whether the certificate/diploma purchased is digital or parchment.

    • The location of the learner.


    Is there customer support available for payment-related queries?

    Yes, our customer support team is available to assist you with any payment-related inquiries. You can reach out via email or through the support portal.


    How can I boost my earnings?

    Self-promotion and marketing will help boost the profile of your course. Many Course Creators also opt to join our Affiliate Programme which can significantly improve your earnings. You can learn more about Alison’s Affiliate Programme here.


    Remember to review the terms and conditions for specific details regarding payments, as they may vary based on updates and changes to the platform policies.
