My student’s parents don’t speak English. Do you have any parent guides in Chinese that I can send them to help with onboarding?

Yes, one of the tutors, Sarah, from our wonderful Koala Go tutor community made a comprehensive parent guide in Chinese with both Chinese and English subtitles: https://youtu.be/kY4taV2vzOs. She even posted the video on BiliBili, the Chinese video website, so that parents can access the videos without restriction: https://www.bilibili.com/video/BV1UP411X7HC

How does the Koala Go invoicing system work? What are the benefits of invoicing using Koala Go?

Parents from any country can pay in their local currency, using popular local payment methods (such as credit cards in the US or WeChat in China). Tutors get paid through their preferred methods amongs PayPal, Venmo, or Square Cash. That’s how simple it is! Your business will be streamlined and you can focus on growing it. Tutor Caitlin made this wonderful video to explain the benefits and how to have the conversation with the parents. Video link: https://youtu.be/fjxmf24oj6Q

Can I send an invoice with Koala Go even if I don't use it for teaching?

Anyone can send an invoice with Koala Go. Whether you use it to teach or not.

  1. Go to https://classroom.teachwithkoala.com/
  2. Sign in with gmail or any email
  3. Click on the avatar in the top right menu
  4. Click on “Send Invoice”
  5. Follow the process and send your invoice

Do I need a Koala Pro package to use invoicing?

No, you can invoice through Koala even if you don’t teach on Koala.

If I already have a Standard Stripe account, do I still need an Express account connected to Koala?

Yes, you still need an Express account, but it’ll take just 3 minutes to set it up 🙂 And you won’t ever have to manage Stripe again!

Which country does my bank need to be in to use an Express Stripe account?

As of Jun 2022, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Luxembourg, Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Spain, Singapore, Sweden, Switzerland, UK, and USA.

I don’t have a website. Can I still get a Stripe Express account?

Yes, you can choose to enter a business description instead of a website.

What if I live in a country that is not supported by Stripe?

You can continue to use the existing invoicing system and get paid via PayPal.

Why does it look like my avatar is walking in slow motion in Playground?

This is likely because your hardware acceleration is off in your browser. If you are using Google Chrome, follow these instructions to turn hardware acceleration on

I already have a Stripe account. Can I use this existing one or do I need to create a new one?

Unfortunately, you'll need to create a new Stripe account with us.

Why haven’t I received my payment yet on Stripe?

It can take up to a week for automatic payouts. You can request a payout immediately on your Stripe dashboard.

If I sell an activity on the marketplace, what's the total fee?

Koala takes a 15% fee from Koala Go marketplace sales and Stripe takes a flat fee of $0.30 and 2.9%.

Below is an example for an activity that creator A sells on the marketplace for $24.

The buyer pays $24 with a credit card, then:
Stripe will take 30 cents flat fee + 2.9% of $24 => Stripe fee = $1
Koala will take 15% of $24 which is $3.6
Creator A gets the rest which is 24-3.6-1 = $19.4

Note: If buyer is outside of the US, Stripe takes 3.9% instead of 2.9%
