How can I make money from my course?


MemberPlus Courses generate revenue. This income comes from our InsightTimer subscribers.
A US$59.99 per year (US$9.99 per month) subscription gives a user access to all Courses.

We share 50% of all subscription revenue with our teachers (after the app store has taken a 30% commission). 70% of the income we shared with teachers is allocated to courses.

We calculate teachers' earnings based on two metrics only:

  • Total play count (75%)
  • Teacher engagement (25%)

The more engaging your course is, the more lessons the students will listen to, and the more you engage with students by responding to reviews and answering questions, the more you will earn. 

We love for teachers to interact with students in a way that is authentic, insightful, and adds value to their experience.

Please note that, while Insight Timer celebrates and rewards genuine and thoughtful engagement, we don't reward behavior that artificially increases the number of comments, plays, and reviews.

Content and accounts participating in this activity may be removed and banned from Insight Timer.


Courses can also be purchased individually through our website. 

They are sold for US$19.99 or US$39.99, depending on the number of sessions. 

We do ask that you do not make the course available elsewhere for less than the selling price on Insight Timer.

The teacher receives 50% of the revenue per course (50/50 Split) after the payment processing fee of 3-4% has been taken into account.

For example, for a course that costs US$19.99, the 3% Payment Processing Fee is US$0.59. For this, Insight Timer receives US$19.39. This will then be split 50/50. The teacher will then get US$9.69 for every individual sale.

The breakdown is as follows:

Course Price: US$19.99
Less 3% Payment Processing Fee: US$0.59
Net Earnings: US$19.39

Final split:
Insight Timer (50%): US$9.69
Publisher (50%): US$9.69
