Session is an online business platform that allows anyone to set up a store and host live classes & 1-on-1s, sell memberships, and offer on-demand content.
With Session, you have the power to launch your own custom storefront in minutes, automate hours of manual administration with our 1-click Zoom integration, create member-only access to events and content, and accept drop-in and recurring membership payments in your preferred currency.
You also have the tools to automatically share class recordings with clients, monetize pre-recorded videos through video-on-demand, and manage your entire membership from one place.
Fitness instructors, wellness coaches, and creators who offer live classes and 1-on-1s have found the most value in using Session.

Session uses Stripe to process payments securely and for payouts. Money you earn is directly and securely transferred to your bank account via Stripe.
If you already have clients for your virtual offerings, the Pro plan is the way the go. Most of our users choose the Pro plan because they make most of their income from recurring membership sales.
If don't have clients yet, the Basic plan is an ideal starting point to build up a base of fans with free virtual classes. When you're ready to make money, you can easily upgrade to the Pro plan to accept payments and offer memberships.
We define a transaction as whenever a customer pays for a product or service through a payment flow on Session. A transaction fee is a service-fee based on a given percentage of each transaction.
Please note that Session's transaction fees do not include the fees that Stripe charges. You are responsible for payment processing fees associated with your Stripe account. Stripe fees vary by country. In the US, standard stripe fees are 2.9% + 0.30 cents per one-time transaction, and 3.4% + 0.30 cents per subscription (recurring payment) transaction as of March 2021.
We started Session with the idea that with the right tools, many, many more people can build independently sustainable businesses that support their passions, families, and communities.
By charging a transaction fee, we economically align ourselves to help you grow your business — we only get to succeed when you succeed. The transaction fee also scales to cover variable costs associated with serving your members. These include support, email delivery, and server costs.
While our transaction fee is among the lowest in the industry, it also lets us offer more value at a lower upfront cost than the competition. Entrepreneurs just starting out can now turn their ideas into businesses without upfront capital.
