Basically only LearnDash. But if the admin is using WooCommerce and wants the Instructor to create products via the dashboard, then the LearnDash WooCommerce integration plugin, which they would need by default for LearnDash and WooCommerce to work.

Yes, definitely. Instructors can create paid courses and sell them using the WooCommerce add-on for LearnDash. They can associate courses with products inside our dashboard.

The admins can pay instructors their commissions to their PayPal address directly from the website. We do show a Summary of commissions on the dashboard.

Only the admin and the original instructor of the course can assign other instructors to the course. The secondary instructors with whom the course is shared cannot share the course with other instructors.

Yes, we offer LearnDash Customization services for specific requirements.
