You’ve got a course that you want to sell online. And you want to do it from your own website and have full ownership of your content. But creating an online course website is hard, right?
Our Zippy Courses Starter Pack makes selling your own course online easy. Skip the hassle of research, trial and error, and start creating your course in just 3 days.
Not at all. Here’s how we do it.
First, we’ll create a copy of this website for you. Use the content here as templates, or delete them. Next, we’ll personalize it with your brand and colors. We’ll walk you through important settings (accepting payments, your drip schedule, email list integration) and boom! Your new site is ready.
You can now upload your course content. As soon as you’re done with that, you can open your course for sale. Ka-ching!
Zippy Courses is a WordPress plugin to create and sell online courses. The plugin was conceived and owned by Derek Halpern of Social Triggers. You must purchase a Zippy Courses license separately on top of this package.
At this point you may be wondering why you need us if you can get and install the plugin yourself. If you can figure out all the technical stuff yourself — go for it!
But many of our customers realize that they actually need some hands-on assistance with plugin settings, course content, and with related stuff like sales pages, email marketing and nerdy stuff like servers and hosting. This stuff is hard, even when there is extensive documentation provided!
So let us be your sidekick and take care of the technical stuff, while you focus on creating the best course that you can. Sounds good? Let’s get this done!

Working with David and his team on my online course Photography 101 was wonderful.
David offered fantastic ideas and suggestions to make the course website a smooth and user friendly experience for my customers. As someone who is not technically inclined, David was incredibly patient with walking me through the ins and outs of my own website so I could better understand it.
ClickWP helped me set up an end-to-end solution for my new course, from setting up Zippy Courses to setting up my payment processor. When I was dealing with the hundreds of details in creating a brand new course, having ClickWP's help in dealing with the technical side was a total lifesaver.
After purchasing the Zippy Courses Starter Pack, you will be directed to a form to collect some basic info about your new course site. Specifically we want to know:
1. The URL where you want to install your site
2. The theme you want to use for your site.
Yes, but not at this promotional price.
Furthermore, we recommend setting up your course website on a different installation because:
1. Keeping interests separate: Your main website should be designed to build your audience and convert existing readers into customers. A site designed to sell your course has different needs in terms of design and structure, and you want both sites to do their jobs as well as possible.
2. Theme Limitations: In WordPress, you can only have one theme installed per WordPress site. That means that, if you have a theme you like on your main domain already, you can’t use the included course website themes on the same website.
3. Plugin Conflicts: The Zippy Courses plugin is incompatible with most e-commerce and membership plugins. If you already sell products from your main website, there is a big possibility that we can’t install Zippy Courses on it.
Yes, simply remove the hosting option from your order before you checkout in our store.
However, we recommend that you setup your course website on a new installation, separate from your main website.
That's entirely up to you. You can install your course website on a subdomain of your existing site, e.g.
However many of our customers have also used brand new domains for their course website, e.g.
Yes, but not at this promotional price. Furthermore, without the Website Care & Business Tools plan, you will not have access to our tools to create landing pages and email pop-ups.
Zippy Courses has some membership features like restricting access to content and recurring payments. However it can't create a members-only website or premium content website like
The primary goal of Zippy Courses is to organize lessons into a syllabus to teach a topic with text, video and audio. If this is what you’re looking to do, Zippy Courses should fit your needs perfectly.
It’s recommended but not necessary. You can always purchase the license after you have launched your course and have decided you will continue to use Zippy Courses.
