Selling courses using member areas

Go to solution Solved by bycrawford,

Recommended Posts


I've created several sites using Squarespace, and for the first time I have a client who wants to be able to use her site to sell access to courses. I've read through all the articles in knowledgebase about member areas, but it's still unclear: Do I need to create a different member area for each course, and then people who purchase access to the course are gaining access to that member area? Is this the only way to sell courses unless it's a straight up digital download purchase?

I'm envisioning people being able to log in and see a dashboard where they can see which courses they have purchased. Is this possible in Squarespace? 

Thanks in advance for the clarity.

Hey Lindsey,

You'll need to create a new membership area for each course. I built an entire video course in Squarespace here: https://www.bloglifestylemastery.com/

Essentially, when the user logs in, they'll be able to see all members areas that they're subscribed to (and pages within) listed like products in the pop out to the right of the page. Pic attached for reference.
