The AE Academy has the flexibility, security, and integrations to start selling fast


Selling learning products is a snap on the AE Academy. Whether it's training, events, webinars, or physical inventory, the AE Academy gives you all of the tools that you need to sell! sell! sell!


The AE Academy provides all the e-commerce features you want and expect in a single, unified platform — and some that you don’t even know you want… yet. From coupons to bulk discounts, to course bundles, to the ability to purchase and manage multiple seats. The chances are that if you need it or want it, we already have it available out of the box.


We love our customers, and it makes us so proud when they say things like, “the AE Academy solves complex problems in a way that makes sense; it’s not like other solutions that seem like they were made by developers, for developers.” The AE Academy is for everyone!

At the heart of the AE Academy is web-based training — a full-featured LMS. Of course, our all-in-one LMS, CMS, and e-commerce solutions does so much more because we’re cool like that, but our web-based training is our main event. The AE Academy’s LMS is comprehensive, scalable, flexible, and customizable. The AE Academy allows you to seamlessly create and sell access to your courses and content online. Your customers and users can immediately access it online in our system.

There are all kinds of learners and there are all kinds of learning. The AE Academy is all about supporting you and selling your learning products. So, of course, the AE Academy isn't just for self-paced training. Our platform can also be used to sell and track in-person or live events. This includes advanced options such as managing locations, automatically restricting class-size, as well as controlling registration deadlines. Whatever you need to teach, we’ve got the tools to help you get it out there.

Physical products are important resources for many learners. Sell physical products with features such as tracking available inventory, generating real-time UPS or FedEx shipping rates, and calculating appropriate state and local taxes. We get it: sometimes the best accessory to a course is a textbook or a laminated chart (or your awesome new T-shirt).

A table for one? A party of one hundred and thirty? No problem! That’s right! we’re flexible, and we’re ready for whatever size order you need. You can sell access in a way that fits your program. For most of our clients, it's important that their users can easily purchase and manage one or more seats. No one wants to mess up a sale with a whole lot of tech support and complications! So we made it really easy. All that your users need to do is simply select how many seats they want to order and order them. Voila! Once they have their course access ordered, they have the ability to manage, distribute access to those seats, pull compliance reports, view users' progress, and even print out their users' certificates of completion for their records.

Numbers and data and metrics, oh yeah! The AE Academy seamlessly integrates with Google Search Console & Analytics because we know how you like tracking site visits as well as conversions, order totals, and top-performing products – all from your existing Google Analytics account. The AE Academy also works with any tracking, affiliate, or analytics platform that utilizes a JavaScript tracking snippet or tracking pixel. So, if you have great tracking software that uses a standard JavaScript integration, no problem! We can work with it. And, we have our own, built-in reporting, too. Out of the box, the AE Academy can also natively track order sources, allowing you to easily report on what affiliate traffic ultimately is resulting in sales.

Presentation is a big part of any sale. The AE Academy makes it easy for you to present your products in a way that works best for you and your unique audience. Create groups of categories/subcategories, allow users to filter by dates, locations, or content type. Regardless of what you are selling, the AE Academy makes it easy for your users to find it.

Whether it’s through product bundling, loyalty programs or special discounts, coupons and discounts successfully drive sales. The AE Academy offers a variety of discount types including standard coupon codes, one-time use discounts, member discounts, and automatic bulk discount. Discounts can be restricted by product, category, minimum order amount, date and more! And really, who doesn’t love a good sale from time to time?!
