List Course for sale 

This list will allow you to sell courses on the platforms you select. You will have an option to choose any combination of the three available platforms based on the plan that you have opted for. The three available platforms are Website, Android & IOS. If you want your course to list on none, you can opt for the fourth option "none".

Example: If you have chosen the advanced plan then all the three platforms are open for you to choose. However, by enabling only Website & Android you can restrict the course from publishing on iOS.

Until a specific number of days: Fix the number of days. Only up until those number of days, the course can be accessed in a particular plan.
