How is the certificate cost calculated?

    As a course publisher on Alison, you do not have the flexibility to set the prices for the certificates associated with your courses. The pricing structure is determined by Alison based on specific considerations to ensure fairness and consistency. 

    The pricing of certificates is influenced by several key factors, including:

    • Course Type: The distinction between a certificate and a diploma.

    • Certificate Format: Whether the certificate is provided in digital or parchment format.

    • Learner's Location: The cost may vary depending on the geographical location of the learner.

    Alison’s mission is to make education free and accessible to all which is why all of our courses are free to enrol in and complete. We price certs differently in different countries to try to ensure that we remain accessible in areas with less disposable income than others.


    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.
