Your Udemy course can be free or paid. If you would like to charge for your courses, the first step is to fill out our Premium Instructor application.
While you control the price of your course, we do have marketplace price standards in order to ensure a consistent and intuitive pricing experience for students. We also offer guidance based on marketplace data, in order to help you find the best price for your course.
Both the price standards and guidance may evolve over time based on student purchasing patterns and actions across the site.
What You Need to Know:
- You can set your course price between $20 and $200. If your default currency is not in dollars, you can see our global price matrix here.
- You can set your course price between $20 and $200 in tiers of $5 (for example, $20, $25, $30, and so on).
- While you can change the price of your course at any time, you can switch from Free to Paid only once. If you switch from free to paid and back to free (or vice versa) after the course is published, your promotional announcements for the course will be permanently disabled.
- Courses offered for a fee on Udemy cannot be offered for free off of Udemy (e.g. YouTube, your own site, other sites).
Guidance on Finding the Right Price:
Choosing a price that reflects the true value of your course to prospective students is a critical part of being an Udemy instructor. As a new instructor, please fill out your premium instructor application and select a list price between $20 and $200.
