Selling Courses Online

Joomdle lets you sell Moodle courses through Joomla, either by using Moodle's Paypal features from within Joomla or by integrating your favourite Joomla e-commerce extensions.

Aside from simple purchasing courses through your e-commerce extension, Joomdle provides the additional benefit of being able to purchase multiple courses at once ("bundles"), using coupons, combining purchases with Moodle courses and other products, leveraging the commerce tools workflow and the many other features your e-commerce extension provides.  Therefore, you can:

  • give your users a better shopping experience;
  • reduce transaction fees; 
  • use other payment methods aside from Paypal; and
  • gain statistical information relating to the users shopping habits.

 

Supported e-commerce extensions

Currently, the supported Joomla e-commerce extensions are:

  • Hikashop
  • Virtuemart
  • Tienda

 

Parent's Features

Do you provide online courses for children? Perhaps you are the HR department or a Manager and wish to purchase courses for your staff? Joomdle provides the ability for parents / managers to purchases courses for their children/staff and enroll both the child and parent automatically in the course using Moodle's parents features.

 

Selling courses through Moodle's Paypal

Moodle integrates directly with Paypal without the need for 3rd party Joomla e-commerce extensions.  Currently support is offered for Paypal forms and not Paypal pro.  Refer to the Moodle documentation for setup and configuration details.

Recognising this feature, Joomdle has been written to take advantage of Moodle's Paypal integration by displaying a Paypal button along with Moodle course details.  If selected the user will be redirected to purchase the course using Moodle's Paypal integration to complete the payment.

Refer to Joomdle's documentation Wiki for more details on setting up and configuring Joomdle e-commerce functional.
