If you'd like to share a course with friends or family, you could consider sharing a link to the course on Udemy or sending a Udemy course as a gift. Learn more about how to do that here: "How to Send or Redeem a Udemy Gift."
Instructors put a lot of time and effort into making the course beneficial to students like you, so please do keep that in consideration!
I had a student purchase my course as a gift for someone the other day and found that I received only 30% of the revenue. Is that what I should expect? I wanted to bring this question to support actually, but seems like support@udemy is no longer an option. Would appreciate your guideance.
Hmm, I'm not sure about that. I do know that some purchase channels will result in different percentages (e.g., Apple and Google have a 30% fee on the total sale). You could try opening the single transaction view (2nd to last section in linked article) in your revenue report to see what channel and platform the purchase was made on.
The general Instructor Revenue Share amounts for the most common sources of revenue can be found here.
You can try contacting firstname.lastname@example.org for additional help if the revenue information doesn't seem to be lining up together.
