To achieve this, you must use an integration app such as Zapier.

Key Takeaways:

  • Teachable and WordPress cannot be connected natively
  • The two platforms can be integrated using Zapier

Does Teachable Integrate with WordPress?

Teachable has no native integration capabilities for WordPress. However, you can use Zapier to connect the two platforms together for limited functionality.

How to Use Zapier to Integrate Teachable with WordPress (Step by Step)

To start, you will need to set up a Zapier account. There is a limited free plan available, while paid plans start from $19.99/month.

You will also, of course, require a Teachable account. Note that the Zapier feature is not available on the Free and Basic plans. To use Zapier with Teachable, you have to be subscribed to the Pro or Business plans (from $159/month).

How to Use Zapier to Integrate Teachable with WordPress

Step 1: Log into Zapier. On the home screen, you will see boxes where you can search for the apps you wish to connect. Add Teachable in the first box and WordPress in the second.

Step 2: Two additional boxes will now appear, and you will be asked to select a trigger and an action. The trigger is what happens in Teachable, which then performs an action in WordPress.

Select a trigger and action from the drop-down lists that appear when you click on the boxes and then click “Try It.”

Step 3: On the next screen, you will see the zap workflow displayed. You will also see two triangles with exclamation marks inside. This means that your Teachable and WordPress accounts have not yet been connected to Zapier.

Click the first triangle and then click on “Sign In.”

Step 4: A pop-up will appear with instructions on how to connect your Teachable account. Add in the necessary details and click on “Yes, Continue to Teachable.” The connection will then automatically occur.

Follow the same process for connecting WordPress.

Step 5: Once the two accounts are connected, the final step is to test the trigger and action. You do this by clicking the “Test trigger” and “Test action” buttons on the Zapier workflow screen.

If the test is successful, you’re good to go. If there is a problem, consult Zapier and follow the platform’s instructions to troubleshoot it.

Additionally, when following step 1, you can add WordPress to the first box instead of Teachable. This will create triggers in WordPress and actions in Teachable.
