Can I use WooCommerce to sell Moodle™courses?

Can you charge money for your Moodle™courses? Yes, you can! Moodle™lets you set up PayPal through which you can sell your courses. Easy!!

Actually, no! Want to know why? Keep reading!

Why use WooCommerce Moodle™Integration?

To begin with, here are some stats that say otherwise:

Info Credits 

? This is something to think about, right? So, PayPal – isn’t bad but not enough to cover the payment needs across a wide spectrum of your Moodle™course customers worldwide. 

Particularly, if you focus on #1 above, I’d admit that even I would have second thoughts if I don’t see the desired payment option or gateway. 

Well, not that this is important for you to know. But I’ve been delaying the purchase of my contact lenses from a non-Indian company for months now. 

Why did I hold off on it? Because: 

  • I don’t have a PayPal account and most Indians wouldn’t have it unless absolutely necessary (sadly, that’s the only mode of payment available on their website) – they are also missing out on tapping into a profitable market. India is ginormous!
  • I’m too used to net banking (it’s safer btw!)
  • I’m apprehensive about prepaying by adding my debit/credit card details to the page
  • I’m super lazy 🙂

Okay now, jokes apart. This is serious! 

According to a report in ET, In India, 66.6 billion transactions worth $270.7 billion are expected to shift from cash to cards and digital payments by 2023. Probably, this is a wake-up call for ecommerce brands that are losing out on a huge market of global customers, due to not having enough payment modes.  

elearning ecommerce or Moodle™ecommerce programs should take notes too, given the rapid rise of online learning during and after the COVID pandemic. 

Since your Moodle™courses sold online are also a part of such online transactions. You clearly need to provide more online payment options to your elearning customers.

The upside – You get to capture more market segments globally and impact your earnings more than you can expect. 

This brings us to the game-changing open-source ecommerce plugin of all times – WooCommerce! Yes, you can use WooCommerce! Why? 

Why not? The benefits are insane.
