Transactional pricing in

Training Online - Advantage of transactional pricing

To illustrate the difference between pricing in and other platforms, here is an example of cost calculation.

Beside this illustration there is the FREE enrollment plan in and the system may be run at zero cost.

Transactional pricing (as in

  • Firstly, transactional pricing gives you a full control and flexibility of future education & training costs and allows you to allocate the costs perfectly. No matter what is the number of your users, teachers or courses, this method still saves the time you can use on more productive activities rather than cleaning the entries. You may keep even inactive users or content such as courses, announcementsor surveys, and having a full statistics and entries still compliant with a legal legislation.
  • Secondly, if there is no new enrollments, there is no cost. Think about as about a lifetime platform which remains accessible for its users even if there is zero credit. You don't pay anything if you do not asssign new user to courses, but your data is still available to you. In other words, you pay exactly for what you do, you don't “rent” the platform for a time as in other pricing methods.


Therefore your cost may be easily calculated and forecasted!

The costs using the transactional pricing method may be easily calculated in this way:

Let's consider that you have 100 users and want to perform training each two months, which means 6 times a year.


 1 course enrollment

  1,3 USD 

 100 users (1,3 * 100)

 130 USD 

 6 times a year (130 * 6)     

 780 USD


 780 USD

Monthly Subscription & Regular fees (other platforms)

This is a more traditional pricing model, whenyou usually pay once a month for a package based on a number of users, teachers or courses in your system. In practice, this means you really have to keep an eye on those key numbers and make sure that your platform contains only up to date entries that will ensure you a proper price band, as you don't want to pay more for an inactive content. For 100 users, the monthly cost would be around 300 USD.


 1 month

   300 USD

 12 month (300 * 12)          

 3600 USD 


 3600 USD

In contrast to the first mentioned method, you still have to pay the monthly fee even if there is no activity in some of the months.

Are you sure you want to pay money for a service when you're not using it?

This means in practice that if you are using this pricing model, you cannotconsider interruptingyour electronic education for some time. In case you stop paying for any reason, you lose the access and all your users'study performance data as this kind of systems simply doesn't allow the interruption of payment.  Knowing this, you basically have no other choice than just continuing to pay. You are trapped!

The outcome? Take the advantage!

Compare the cost on 6 courses for yourself, is 79 % cheaper!

6 courses a year are not enough, you think? Try assigning 12 courses a year, in which case the user would have to perform 1 training a month.Even with such a demanding training,Training Online is still 50 % cheaper than the traditionally priced systems.

Don't forget, you may still use the FREE plan and your running cost may be zero!

So, which pricing scheme you like better?

And which system provides better flexibility in costs?
