Setting Up The Sensei LMS Addon
The Sensei LMS addon lets you charge or sell Sensei LMS courses and group access, enroll users after registration to specific courses and groups, and allow users to view their enrolled courses from the My Account page.
The addon is a better alternative to Sensei Pro (WC Paid Courses) and WooCommerce for selling courses in Sensei.
Activating the Addon
To get started, ensure you have ProfilePress installed and activated on your site. Then, activate the Sensei LMS addon by going to ProfilePress>>Addons.
Sensei LMS Addon Settings
After activating the addon, you can find its setting by navigating to ProfilePress >> Settings >> Sensei LMS.
To enroll users to specific courses and/or groups in Sensei LMS after registration, regardless of the custom registration form they registered through, use the Courses and Groups settings.
If you want to add a menu to the My Account page that displays users’ enrolled courses, enable the “Courses My Account Menu” setting.
Selling Sensei LMS Courses and Group Access
Our Sensei LMS addon lets you sell your courses with ease. It works by associating one or multiple courses to a membership plan.
You can package two or more related courses into a bundle, price it lower than the cost individually, and watch your sales grow.
If the membership plan is a subscription that charges a recurring fee, access is revoked if the subscription is refunded, expired, or canceled.
Follow the instructions below to start selling Sensei LMS courses with ProfilePress.
Go to ProfilePress >> Membership Plans to create a new membership plan or open up the edit screen of an existing plan that you want to use to sell your course.
Give the plan a name, description, and price.
ProfilePress has a built-in field called “Purchase Note” shown to the customer after a successful purchase on the order confirmation page and in the customer’s receipt email. Consider using this field to provide instructions or the next steps for taking your course, along with a link to the course page.
This field accepts HTML. Here’s an example of creating a link to your course. Replace the URL with the URL to your specific course.
<a href="https://yoursite.com/course/build-websites-wordpress/">Start this Course</a>
Use the Subscription Settings section to set the plan or course fee as a recurring payment that can be charged daily, weekly, monthly, quarterly, every six months, or yearly.
Finally, on the Downloads & Integrations section, select the Sensei LMS courses and groups to grant users access after purchasing the membership plan.
Don’t forget to save your changes.
Enrollment Based on the Registration Form
The Sensei LMS addon also integrates with the registration form to enroll users in specific courses and groups based on the registration form they signed up through.
Sensei LMS Courses Preview
After you’ve associated your courses and groups to a membership plan or registration form in ProfilePress, your users will see a Buy button. After checkout or payment, the Buy button would be replaced with a button to start or take the course.
