There is a pretty big difference with Simplero vs Thinkific. Simplero is built around selling a digital or even physical product. While they do have courses per se, It’s only available as a membership and is structured like a blog. Thinkific is more than just an online course platform.
Thinkific is built from the ground up to support online courses, digital products, and membership sites. Simplero is built more around selling your products than it is building and managing great content. Once the content is sold, Thinkific has tools to help you support your students and customers. It helps them be more engaged, successful, and happy.
Thinkific was born from an online course. Our founders were teaching online in 2011 and online course creators were reaching out asking to find out how we built it. Since then we’ve been learning from the 60,000+ course creators and 9 million+ students through our platform.
You can learn a wide variety of topics with Thinkific customers: Excel, English ESL, Social Media, Flying Drones, Accounting, Cooking, Yoga, Hula hoop, Video Marketing, 3D Animation, Spanish, Knitting, and the list goes on and on. Elizabeth Rider, HootSuite, Dana Malstaff (BossMom), Intuit, York University, and more run their online classes with Thinkific.

While your business is growing you’ll have more requirements, and probably already working with a few other companies. Use the best app in the business for what you want to do. Seamlessly integrate with Thinkific, and keep everything on the same page.
We have a well-documented API and Webhooks for more custom integrations. If that’s too advanced, our Zapier integration is robust and continuously improved upon.

We’ve learned that what makes a difference in successful online courses is Student Experience and Engagement. We have lots of tools to help you to this with quizzes, exams, surveys, and discussions. Our competitors just aren’t there yet.
