How much does this cost?

The Sensei LMS course-building plugin is $9 USD per month (or $99 per year). This is a significant discount exclusive to WordPress.com users.

This is in addition to your WordPress.com hosting plan. Adding plugins like Sensei LMS requires the WordPress.com Business or Commerce plan for your site.

Will I have to pay for a custom domain name for my website?
