Udemy for Business Revenue Share
If your course(s) are selected for inclusion in the Udemy for Business collection (click here for more information on selection), you may begin to see new students in your student list with a Udemy for Business tag.
Udemy for Business students will not appear on your revenue report individually, like purchases from the Udemy marketplace do.
Each month, Udemy will calculate the total monthly subscription fees paid by all current Udemy for Business customers. 25% of this revenue will be allocated to instructors who have been selected for the Udemy for Business program, known as the “Instructor Revenue Pool”.
To calculate your revenue share each month, Udemy will divide the total Instructor Revenue Pool by the Total Minutes Consumed by all subscribers in that month. This “per-minute” amount is then multiplied by the monthly total of Course Minutes consumed in your courses to determine your revenue share.
In other words, if Udemy for Business students consumed 100 minutes of content from the Udemy for Business collection in one month and your courses received 5 of those minutes, your revenue share would be equal to 5% of the Instructor Revenue Pool for that month.
Your Udemy for Business revenue will be paid out the first week of the following month. For example, your revenue from August would appear in the Udemy for Business tab of your August revenue report in the first week of September.
In the Udemy for Business tab, you’ll see a breakdown of the courses which earned revenue from Udemy for Business in that month, including the total minutes of consumption your courses received from Udemy for Business students. The associated revenue each course earned is also included.
For courses that have more than one instructor, co-instructors who are designated to receive revenue, can click on their revenue earned for each course and see a breakdown of revenue each instructor received.
