Hei alle sammen! 🇳🇴

Have you ever stumbled across the ultimate platform to host your online courses (yes, we're talking about Thinkific) and then thought, "How do I make it super easy for my Norwegian audience to pay?" If that's a riddle you're trying to solve, we've got a golden solution for you: Vipps via CheckoutJoy. Let's break it down.

What is Vipps?

Before we jump into the integration magic, let's shed some light on Vipps for those who might not be familiar.

Vipps is Norway's leading payment app, and it's as Norwegian as brunost on waffles. Launched in 2015 by DNB, Norway's largest financial services group, Vipps swiftly became a favorite for hassle-free mobile payments.

Whether it's for splitting the bill at a restaurant, buying that snazzy jumper online, or now, enrolling in an online course, Vipps makes transactions smooth as glacial fjord waters.

For Norwegian businesses, integrating Vipps is practically a no-brainer!

Why CheckoutJoy?

Now, while Thinkific is a stellar platform for online courses, it doesn't natively support Vipps. That's where CheckoutJoy comes into play.

CheckoutJoy acts as a bridge between Thinkific and Vipps, allowing course creators to accept payments seamlessly, efficiently, and with that added touch of 'Norsk' that your audience will appreciate.

  4. Customize the Experience: While the basic setup is done, you can always spruce things up. Choose how you'd like the checkout page to look, decide on the payment confirmation messages, and make sure everything is in line with your brand.
  5. Test and Go Live: Before you set sail, always test the waters. Make a test purchase to ensure everything works as it should. Once you're satisfied, it's time to go live and watch those enrollments roll in!

In Conclusion
