What is the TrainHeroic Marketplace?
The TrainHeroic Marketplace is the virtual addition to your gym you’ve been looking for. This is an opportunity to sell your programming to a large network of athletes, to extend the walls of your gym (virtually), and reach athletes across the globe.
With Marketplace, in addition to your current coach tool kit, you'll have access to:
- Integrated billing for seamless athlete sign-ups
- Analytics for new trials and sales
How to gain access to Marketplace Settings and start selling:
In order to ensure quality for our coaches and athletes, your Marketplace Settings must be enabled by a member of our team.
Please send a request to email@example.com to begin the application process.
In order for your request to be considered:
- You must have an active paid Coach Plan to participate in the Marketplace (trials excluded)
- Requests must come from the head coach of the account, from the email address associated with your coach account and payments will only be made to the head coach
- Emailed requests from an email address NOT associated with your coach account will delay the process
Once we receive a completed marketplace application form and enable your Marketplace Settings for your account, you're off to the races.
Marketplace Fees & Payout Information:
Bellow are the 10 things you need to know to get started.
- There is no additional cost to have your Marketplace Settings enabled, or to put a Team or Program in the Marketplace.
- Once your Marketplace settings are enabled, you'll be able to sell both Team and Program subscriptions to athletes and coaches.
- Your Team or Program can be public OR private in the TrainHeroic Marketplace.
- Team subscriptions are either monthly or annual subscriptions, which auto-renew each paid month. Teams run on a live calendar, and support interactions between teammates. Programs are a fixed number of sessions for a one-time purchase that give the athlete (or coach) access for one year. Programs allow athletes to train independently.
- You'll set the price price for your Teams and Programs (we do have a minimum). Athletes are billed immediately on sign-up and will be able to cancel their subscription in-app at anytime. As soon as they stop paying, the athlete (or coach) will lose access to your programming.
- TrainHeroic will take $1/month from each marketplace transaction and you will keep the rest after a small transaction fee of 2.9% + $0.30 from the bank. For Programs, we will round up to the nearest month. For example a 1-4 week Program has a split of $1, a 5-8 week has a split of $2, etc.
- You'll be paid on the 15th of each month, for the prior month's sales via direct deposit for US Coaches, or PayPal for international coaches.
- There's a $200 minimum for payout. If you don't meet the $200 minimum, we'll roll that balance over to the next payday until you hit the $200 mark. If you choose to be paid via check/snail mail, we'll cut the check once your balance hits $500 or more.
- TrainHeroic handles all of the athlete billing when they make purchases, as well as any technical support for your paying athletes (and coaches). You won't have to deal with a thing on the financial or banking side of things outside of getting set up to receive the payment! Because TrainHeroic handles all billing, refunds will be at our discretion.
- You do NOT need to pay for athlete seats upfront, if you're planning on selling through the Marketplace. You're only required to purchase a Coach Plan for $9.99/month.
Note: All marketplace prices will be listed in US Dollars. Any conversions for foreign transactions will be done by the purchaser's bank.
