Coins - Teacheron Currency

For payments between students and teachers, please read Sending payments and Getting paid.

Since we have teachers and students from over 130 countries, discussing prices in individual currencies can be confusing. Therefore, we use a common currency, "TeacherOn coins" or just "coins" for most transactions. You can get 50 coins for 1USD. You can view available discounts and prices for other currencies on the Buy coins page.

How do teachers use coins?

Teachers use coins to:

  1. Contact students i.e. apply to jobs

How can I get coins? 

  • Refer teachers: If anybody registers after visiting your referral link, you will get coins when they join. You will also get coins when they buy coins. See details about referral.
  • Invite Friends: We include your referral link and send mails on your behalf when you invite friends. If any of your invited friends join, you get coins as per our referral plan above.
  • Buy: You can buy coins if you need coins instantly. 

After how long do the coins expire?

We feel it's unethical to force you to spend coins on jobs you don't want. Doing so leads to a bad experience for you and the students you contact. Therefore, the coins never expire. We believe this will allow you to use coins at the pace you are comfortable with to contact only the relevant students.

Do we have any special discounts and offers for buying coins?

We don't do gimmicks or flash sales. That's because we believe you should buy coins only if you have faith in the value you get, not because of some fake urgency. However, you can get up to 50% discount depending on how many coins you buy. 

Can I convert coins into cash?
