Can I make money from my recordings?

It has been our intention from the start to help teachers earn meaningful revenue from their work.

This is possible through three different ways:

1. Online Courses

2. Donations

3. Subscription Revenue

Online Courses

We've started to sell online courses.

All courses adhere to an Insight Timer format of 10 or 30 days with daily sessions that range between 10-15 minutes. They are audio only and do not include any supplementary material, such as PDFs.

10 Day Courses are currently available for single use (USD$4.99) or to own forever (USD$19.99). 30 Day Courses will be made available in the coming months.

If you’re interested in creating a course, please contact


It's now possible for teachers on the app to receive donations from their listeners. There will be three donation amounts available: $1.99, $4.99, and $19.99.

Subscription Revenue

In January 2018 we launched our first subscription service on the app, which is an Offline Pack for $4.99 per month. The majority of revenue generated will help Insight Timer to cover monthly costs, however we reserve a portion to share with teachers based on the follower criteria:

1. Quality: Main factors are your total play count and how highly your content is rated

2. Engagement: How often you respond to user reviews

3. Sharing: How often your content is shared by you and your users
