ShootingClasses.com is free for instructors to join and advertise courses and classes. A small fee for administrative management is charged when a student registers for a class. The fee is $10 per student for courses greater than $100. If a course is $100 or less, we reduce the fee to $5 per student. The fee is deducted when the student’s credit card is processed. The balance, less normal STRIPE credit card processing fee, is then deposited into the instructors chosen bank account. View our pricing page
