How Earning Works

Skillshare operates under a subscription model, which means that students pay a monthly or annual fee for a Skillshare Membership, which includes unlimited access to our entire catalog of classes, and other membership features like offline viewing through our mobile app.

We compensate teachers for every minute watched by students in their classes and for every student they bring to Skillshare through their referral link. How does it work? 

  1. Earn Referrals: Get $10 for every student you bring to Skillshare that signs up for a Membership. 

  2. Earn Royalties: Earn royalties based on the number of paid minutes watched in your classes every month.

Our top teachers make over $100,000 a year! In this section, learn everything you need to start earning money teaching on Skillshare.
