Giving your customers the option to purchase your courses through an installment plan will give them a more flexible way to organize their payment and at the same time have access to your valuable content.


You can now create your own installment plan button through your PayPal payment gateway, let us show you how.


1Open the PayPal button creation page.

Log in to your PayPal account and locate the Tools --> All Tools option on the top bar menu:

2 Find the PayPal buttons option and click "Open": 

3For this next step, you will need to select the button type. Select "Subscribe":

You then need to select the currency, the billing amount per installment, the billing cycle period, and the number of installments:  

If your students buy a course via this installment button, PayPal makes the payments automatically on the schedule you set. You can include tax and shipping in the total amount, but do not include interest.


4Customize button text and appearance.

You can change the appearance and text of the default PayPal button; you can even enter a URL and use your own button image:

Once you are ready, click on "Create button":

5Find your button code.


Find and copy the code for the new button you have just created so you can then add it to your Learnworlds school.

6Paste your button code to your Learnworlds page


Add Embed section

Hit update and save your changes.

*You can find sample PayPal Installment button codes on this page.


Note: If you wish to take your customers back to your school after the PayPal Checkout page, add to the PayPal buttons as a return URL, your school's landing page URL (which will be accessible to logged out users as well). Please find the respective instructions to achieve that, here (par. no 6)


Now, once you see that you have received a payment from a learner to your PayPal account, go ahead and manually enroll them in the relevant course.


That's it!
