Are you a course creator using Thinkific and looking to change your currency? It’s easier than you think! This article is here to help guide you through the process step by step. Whether you’re just starting to set up your online courses or simply need to switch to a different currency, we’ve got you covered.
Thinkific offers two of numerous payment options for course creators to receive payments for their courses: the built-in Thinkific Payments, and the third-party payment platform Stripe. In this article, we’ll provide simple instructions for changing your currency for both platforms within Thinkific. Just a heads up, changing your currency can affect your pricing and billing, so be sure to double-check those after making the change. Let’s get started!
Changing Currency in Thinkific: Before You Start
Before we jump into changing your currency in Thinkific, there are a few things you need to know. Firstly, make sure you’re logged in as the administrator of your Thinkific account. This is important because only administrators can change the currency settings. So, if you’re a course creator yourself, you are also an admin user.
Another thing to keep in mind is the potential consequences of changing your currency. Your pricing and billing information may be affected by this change. Additionally, your students may need to create an entirely new Thinkific account if you make the change unnoticed. With those considerations in mind, ensure to double-check everything, even after making the switch.
Got it? Great! Let’s move on to the step-by-step guide.
Step-by-Step Guide on How to Change the Currency in Thinkific
If you want to change the currency in your Thinkific account, you’ve come to the right place! In this guide, we’ll walk you through changing the currency in Thinkific Payments and Stripe.
To change the currency in Thinkific, you will need to log in to your Thinkific account as the administrator. Then, follow these steps:
- Click on the “Settings” link from the leftmost menu of your account dashboard.
- From the “Settings” page, select the “Payments” tab.
Your version of the “Payments” settings section will vary based on the payment platform you use for your students to check out your course content. There are two options for changing the currency in Thinkific, depending on your payment method – either through Thinkific Payments (a built-in payment service) or Stripe, a third-party payment processing platform.
For Thinkific Payments
If you use Thinkific Payments to handle student payments, here are the following steps you will take to change your current currency to a new one:
- While on the “Payments” page, scroll to or click on “Card processing.”
- Under the “Currency” section, you will notice the current or default form of currency. To change it to a new currency, click on the “Change currency” button.
- Clicking on the button will redirect you to a pop-up window with a drop-down menu of all the supported currencies. From there, select your desired currency.
- Once you’ve made your selection, click on “Update currency” to save your changes.
If you have integrated your Thinkific account with Stripe instead of using the built-in Thinkific Payments feature, you will follow a similar process as mentioned above.
- In the “Payments” page within the settings section, scroll to or click on “Card Processing.”
- In the “Currency” field, select the desired currency from the drop-down menu.
- Click on “Save” to save your changes.
NOTE: It’s important to carefully consider the potential consequences of changing your currency. Both Thinkific Payments and Stripe do not support transactions in multiple currencies, so students who have previously paid for your products in a different currency may need to create a new Thinkific account in order to make new purchases.
It’s that simple! By following these steps, you’ll be able to change the currency in your Thinkific account with ease. Just remember to review your payment settings after making the change to ensure everything is set up correctly. If you have any questions or run into any issues, don’t hesitate to reach out to Thinkific support for assistance.
