What are Online Course Terms and Conditions?
Online Course Terms and Conditions are the terms you set for customers who purchase an online course on your website.
If you’re an educator or industry professional and make an online course for students to purchase and learn from, this contract is for you!
You want to ensure all the hard work you’ve put into your online course isn’t stolen out from under you. You also want to ensure your business practices on refund requests, payment schedule, intellectual property etc., are explained to your students before they purchase.

Australian Consumer Law – what’s required?
Australian Consumer Law requires you to include the following details in your Terms and Conditions:
- A statement that you comply with Australian Consumer Law
- How you will provide a refund, repair or replacement of faulty products
- Details of your guarantee
- Details of any warranty (if you provide one, which is not obligatory)
Remember, you cannot have a blanket “no refunds” policy in your T&Cs. You are required by law to guarantee your goods and services against faults or if they do not perform as advertised.
Where should I publish my Online Course Terms and Conditions?
It is standard practice to display a tickbox linking to your T&Cs in the shopping cart or checkout. Customers must click on the “OK“, “I Agree“, or “I Accept” button before they complete an order. This is known as a clickwrap agreement.
Can I have a separate Refund Policy page on my website?
Yes, you can have a separate Refund Policy page on your website. However, it should mirror the terms you include in your Online Course Terms and Conditions. In other words, you should copy what is in your T&Cs and make sure the same information is reflected in your Refund Policy.
If you only had a Refund Policy on your website, a customer could argue that they did not accept the refund policy when they signed up, and are therefore not bound by it.
What if I sell to Australia AND overseas customers?
No worries, you can still cover this in one document. Just ensure you update any relevant sections on payment etc., to include international customers.
Generally, you want the governing law for your legal agreements to be where you are based so that if a dispute arises, you are covered by local laws.
Course Platforms – Compatibility
Our template can be used with any of these platforms. Normally, just a few quick steps are involved to add your T&Cs to the platform’s backend (see example here).
Template was exactly what I was looking for and was super easy to use. Took less and 15mins to set up. Totally worth the money in the time it saved me.
Quick and easy
Perfect for what I need it for and very easy to adjust. Also included much more coverage for things I hadn't yet thought about. Nice to have piece of mind prior to launching course
So easy and fuss free
It was an all around easy process, It was also great learning through application as I read my Ts and Cs, I learnt more about business and what boundaries I want to put in place.
