How to Sell Online Courses with Thrive Apprentice & WooCommerce


In this course, you’ll learn how to sell an online course on your WordPress website using Thrive Apprentice and WooCommerce.

We’ll be using the Sales Page First approach, which we teach in our premium course — Course Craft.

Not sure what kind of content to include in your course? Want to make sure your course will sell before you invest time and effort into creating it? 

Starting with your sales page can help you focus on creating marketable and valuable content. And, by placing a lead generation form on your sales page, you can build a waiting list of people who are interested in your course.

Over the next 12 lessons, we’ll cover:

  • Creating a sales page with a waiting list
  • Creating your actual sales page
  • Setting up a course in Thrive Apprentice
  • Configuring WooCommerce
  • Customizing your Checkout page

As far as the tech goes, you’ll need:

  • Thrive Suite (includes Thrive Theme Builder, Thrive Architect, Thrive Apprentice, and the rest of our WordPress tools)
  • WooCommerce
  • A payment gateway (in this tutorial we will be using Stripe)
  • An email marketing service (in this tutorial we will be using Mailchimp)

Notice that there’s one element missing from our list – a membership plugin. That’s because Thrive Apprentice and WooCommerce will handle access restriction without involving a membership plugin of any kind!

Time to do a little happy dance and move on to the next lesson.

  • So stoked for this, Christine thanks! Been asking for a way to do this, exactly this! ????????✨????????

  • This is starting to sound pretty fantastic – It’s this sort of stuff why I renewed my membership just this month

  • Very timely course, can’t wait to get through it. BTW, it would be super convenient if the Next Lesson link could be at the tope of the ‘words’ section as well as the bottom so that after the video was done, scrolling to the bottom was unnecessary.

  • This integration really simplifies your shop because you can also sell things like merch, apparel, eBooks, etc. with WooCommerce, and now you can use it to sell courses. It’s a true all-in-one! Thank you…this really opens up more opportunities!

  • How can I make a custom design for the course page, I also want to make a custom design for the header
