How to create Paid Communities through the Hotmart platform

Paid Communities are a way to monetize your content. You create the community, configure it, and leave everything ready for your customer to purchase/access your Communities.

Additionally, Paid Communities:

  • Enable integrations with YouTube and WordPress;
  • Allow different content formats;
  • Do not have algorithms that reduce their reach;
  • Have no advertising;
  • Have data and reports generated by the Hotmart platform; 
  • Have an Affiliate Program to promote their community.

To create a Paid Community, follow the steps below:

  1. Access your account using the link:⦁ ⦁ app.hotmart.com
  2. Go to the menu Products and click Create Product;
  3. Then click Community; 
  4. You will need to fill in the name, enter a description of at least 200 characters, and select the category of your community. Remember that it is not mandatory to insert an image for your community. You can enter it directly into the app later;
  5. To proceed, click Next; 
  6. Now, you will price your product by creating a New Price and filling in all the necessary information.  
  7. Set your community's privacy settings and add tags for product search, then click Next; 
  8. Read the terms of use and if you agree, select the option I have read and accept Hotmart's Terms of Use and Privacy Policies, and then click Next to complete the registration;
  9. After completion, wait for your Paid Community to be available;
  10. Once approved, just publicize and sell your community.
