How Skillshare Makes Money
Skillshare operates under a subscription model, which means that students pay a flat fee ($12/month with a monthly plan, or $96/year with an annual plan) for a Premium Membership, which includes unlimited access to our entire catalog of Premium classes and other Premium features like offline viewing through our mobile app.
How Skillshare Pays Teachers
We compensate teachers for every minute watched by Premium students in their classes and every student they bring to Skillshare. How does it work?
- Earn Premium Referrals: Get $10 for every student you bring to Skillshare that signs up for a Premium Membership.
- Earn Royalties: Earn royalties based on the number of minutes watched in your classes every month.
Our top teachers earn $40,000 a year and up! In this section, learn everything you need to start earning money teaching on Skillshare.
