Why Use TCommerce?
Thinkific Payments, as part of the TCommerce suite of tools helps you manage payments in one place without the back-and-forth of managing payments in another product, effectively allowing you to spend less time on administration. It also helps you sell more with features such as Order Bumps, Subscriptions, and Payment Plans, making it our highest converting checkout on Thinkific. Our purpose is to help you spend time on what matters—engaging students and creating content!
As we continue to optimize our platform and user experience, we hope to expand Thinkific Payments to more Creators in other countries. If you're interested in using Thinkific Payments, but are in an unsupported country, please send us a quick email to let us know!
