It has appeared now. It seems that EVERYONE I'm promoting to has gotten the "New Learner Deal," which means they are paying something like $11 for a $200 course. My "promotion," telling them I am giving them a discount (coupon code) is basically a joke now. I am concerned that the impression is created that I was actually trying to "stick" them with a price that's higher than that on Udemy. It's like my price, my Coupon and my efforts at promotion has no value! Hardly what I expected...

So I just launched my first course on Udemy: https://www.udemy.com/course/theibfprotocol/?referralCode=B1153890234434C009D1 What gets me is this... I am running a coupon code promotion for $49 and the regular price for my course, as set up by me, is $199.95. Udemy is selling my course for $59.99. Within an hour of promoting my own course, I got the first sale. I received a payment of $6.00. Maybe I am not fully au fait with how pricing is calculated, but when I looked at my revenue report, I only see reference to the $6.00 (after taxes). How do I know who earned the $44.00 and what did they do for it? I am not necessarily complaining, but I would really like to understand exactlty where most of the money is going and how it is used. As far as i can tell - from Uddemy: " Depending on the partner or the costs of the advertising, the revenue share may vary but will be 25% in most cases." But $6,00 (from $49) is only about 12%. Is this normal? Is this made clear anywhere? Why do I feel a bit cheated?
