Hi, I'm Takeo Fujii.
In order to offer online courses and membership services, I have developed theHeights PlatformI'm using the "I'm not sure what I want to do.
Many instructors working in Japan offer online courses through Kajabi or Teachable. However, there are too many restrictions on the number of courses and features that can be offered, so I use Heights Platform, which has fewer restrictions.
In this article, I will explain the actual payment methods of Heights Platform and the different pricing plans in an easy-to-understand manner.

You will see a blue button for upgrading on the dashboard.
To upgrade from the free trial period, click on this button.
Then you will see a page with price plans.
- Basic (Basic)
Each plan and the features and functions of each plan are written below it.
First of all, there is a part to explain before the functions. There is a tab above each plan.
By switching here, you can choose whether you want a monthly or yearly plan.
If you pay annually, you will pay up to 20 percent less per year for the Heights Platform. If you want to start a full-fledged online course, the annual plan is the best deal.
If you want to start an online course as a business, I recommend an annual plan. The monthly plan is fine, but it is still more expensive if you try to do it on a yearly basis. If you have already decided to use it in earnest, choose the annual plan.
Okay, but let's look at the features of each plan.
The biggest difference between Heights Platform plans
The first major point is "restrictions". There are different restrictions for different plans.
The Heights Platform has only one limitation."Number of students logging in per month."It is.
Unlike Kajabi, Heights Platform allows you to create an unlimited number of online courses. You can also offer unlimited lessons. You can also receive fees without any commissions.
The only limitation is how many students will log in to your online course each month.
Basic allows up to 100 users to log in each month. For Pro, you can log in up to 1,000 people, and for Academy, the limit is unlimited.
Clear explanation of headcount limits
For example, let's say you are using the Basic plan of the Heights Platform.
You are limited to 100 students per month who can login to your Heights Platform learning page.
For the Pro plan, this means that you can log in up to 1000 students per month to the Heights Platform learning page.
If you have 800 or 900 students in your online course, you should use the Pro plan; if you have more than 1000 students, you should use the Academy plan.
In other words, the only limitation of the Heights Platform is "the number of students who can log in and learn in a month.
The Basic plan allows only 100 users per month, so you may think that the limit is quite low, but I think it will soon exceed 1000 users.
So think about it: that is the only limitation of the Heights Platform. There are no other limitations whatsoever. You can create as many online courses as you want, there's no commission on sales, and the essential features are available in basically all plans.
I can't think of any other online course platform that does this.
Why should you use the Heights Platform?
The limited number of students in the Heights Platform may be a concern.
I understand your concern; 100 users is too small a limit.... But the reason why I recommend the Heights Platform is because it's actually very easy to reach the limit. But the reason why I recommend Heights Platform is actually because it is surprisingly easy to reach the limit.
To begin with, running an online course with 100 people logging in every month is pretty much a business stage, right?
A stage that attracts nearly 1,000 people per month should have a monthly sales of over 3 million yen.
This means that the limitations of the Heights Platform areThe plan is designed to match the level of growth of your online course business.
Therefore, you don't need to worry about the limit of the number of students. As the number of students increases, you can upgrade each time.
How to pay for the Heights Platform

Is it safe to pay with Heights Platform? Are you okay?
I think you will be confused when you actually choose and pay for a Heights Platform plan.
How do I pay for the Heights Platform in the first place? Can I use my Japanese credit card? And is it safe?
You have a lot of questions, don't you? It's natural to be scared of paying for foreign software with a credit card. It's always better to be aware of the risk of misuse.
However, there is no problem with the Heights Platform.If you are unsure, please take a closer look at the payment system implemented in Heights Platform, which is Stripe.

The payment is processed by Stripe over an encrypted and secure connection, and no card information is stored in the Heights Platform servers. Payment can be made in Japan without any problems.
Incidentally, there is another concern. That is, who is running the Heights Platform?
