Guru's New 3.3.0 With New Teacher Commissions

Guru's New 3.3.0 With New Teacher Commissions

We recently released Guru with the all-new frontend Teacher Interface. The feedback has been fantastic but we knew that we could do even better. We wanted to make the administrator's work simpler and the teacher earnings more transparent. See the changelog.

We've done it.


Guru's New Commissions System

Our new commission system is the last missing feature needed to turn your Guru site into a fully-fledged learning platform like Udemy. It lets you set teacher commissions, track sales and pay teachers easily.

The new commissions system can be personalised for each teacher separately. It produces reports, and has a batch payment option to send money through Paypal to your teachers.

It will give you and your teachers more structure, more information and greater clarity — and it's easy, transparent and fabulous.

Managing The Commission System

Adding A Commission Plan Is Super Easy

To add a commission plan, open the backend of Guru and navigate to Settings > Commission Plans.

You can create as many commission plans as you like, and set a default commission system for all new teachers too. By giving each teacher a different commission plan, you can negotiate teacher earnings individually.

We Calculate The Discount!

Offer discounts? No problem. We take the price of the course, subtract the discount and calculate the commission based on the amount actually paid by the student. It's only fair.

Flexibility Makes Adjustments Simple

You can change the commission plans for your teachers at any time without affecting previous plans. So if a course was purchased when a teacher was on a previous rate, their commission will be calculated based on their old rate. All future purchases will be calculated based on their new rate. It's really brilliant.

Supporting PayPal And Mass Payments

We've also made paying simple. Just click on “batch payment” to pay all your teachers at the same time with PayPal. Don't forget to mark the selected commissions as paid.

Teachers can set their own PayPal email addresses, and if they've registered with a different address, we give them a dedicated field.

Promo Codes That Only Work For Selected Courses

In previous versions of Guru, the promo codes system worked globally. Now you can set a promo code to work for just one course.

It fits beautifully into the commissions system.

Export All Your Data

The commission system is full of ‘export' buttons, allowing you to download any data you like: history, pending commissions, details of already paid commissions… everything.

It's insanely easy and useful. You can export to CSV. Your teachers can export their earnings reports on the front end as well.

The Commissions System For Teachers

Simple And Clear Summary Of Teacher Earnings

Teachers want to know exactly how much they're earning. Guru's new system lets them track the orders. They can see how much they've already received, the details of those orders and how much is pending withdrawal.

Pending Commissions

Teachers can see their pending commissions any time they want.

Received Commission Summary

We give teachers a history of what they were paid, when they were paid and what the payment consisted of. It's simple and detailed, and comes all wrapped up in a clean design that's easy to navigate.

Payment Any Way They Want

If a teacher doesn't have a Paypal account, they can ask to be paid by bank transfer, Western Union, and a bunch of other methods.

Where Can You Download Guru?

Go to and navigate to My Downloads. Log in and download the Guru Pro package. iJoomla Installer is included in the zip file containing Guru Pro.

How To Upgrade

The easiest way to upgrade is to use the iJoomla installer. In the back-end of your site navigate to: Components > iJoomla Installer.

Alternatively, you can install the latest package on top of the existing one using the regular Joomla extensions installer.

Please remember that any major upgrade should always be preceded by a full backup of your website.

Please also note that all new features added to Guru are available only for Joomla 3.X.

Thank You For Letting Us Earn Your Business

We are working hard to make Guru the best LMS online. Thanks to the new commissions system, the front end Teacher Interface is now better than ever.

We do the calculations, letting you focus on the teaching.
