    Some great data here. I think it would be a good idea to develop a system where the teacher could set a discount price to a specific student. I am also noticing that many students don't take advantage of package discounts for some reason. Perhaps it is something that can be advertised more clearly.

    It would actually great if Italki could finally allow to set prices for students separately in order for teachers to be able to raise prices without affecting older students if desired and having more control over our fees in general. Other platforms allow this for years and it would be great to see it here as well as new students are usually confused when they see different sets of lesson fees.

    Thank you for this article! Offering different prices to older students would be amazing, or being able to use some type of special discount code for different students!

    Pleeeease. Allow us to easily lock students into a certain price point! This is such a KEY thing that's unfortunately missing here on iTalki.

    I absolutely agree that we need to be able to set prices for students and/or offer a discount code.  Please consider doing this on this platform.  Thank you.

    Yes I agree too. It is too slow having to adjust the price after they have booked a lesson.

    If I understood correctly, the only way to keep old students on the old price if you decide to increase your prices for new/potential students is to do it manually each time for each new lesson.
    When the old student finishes his/her package (locked on old price), he/she can purchase a new package only with the new, increased price and the tutor can only modify the dates of the lessons in the package, but not the price for each lesson in the package. Is this correct? 
    The teacher has to inform the student that there is a new, higher price on the teacher profile and that you will have to manually lower the price. So the student has to send a lesson request each time for each lesson so the teacher can manually adjust the price.  
    "Instant booking" should be turned off in the teacher availability settings so the teacher can manually accept and choose to modify the lesson price. 
    Can italki staff confirm this?

    i deeply think that increasing the lessons pricing is good, because as a teacher or tutor you charge for what you do, but also I do think that for old students there should be another option, or a discount code. I don't disagree with instant booking, Im actually fine with it because I have my students community, the issue with it is for new students, and when they don't book the proper lesson it is a little uncomfortable to have to cancel it... so what I usually do is have that instant booking off and when my students are about to book a lesson (I always recommend them to get packages so they can book lessons with advance) I just turn on the instant booking so I won't have any issue, but doing this all the time is definitely not confortable, so please! any solution would be great or a tip also would be super useful.

    Hey guys. Is it possible that I can have 2 types of packages for 2 lesson type? For example: a conversation class of 1 hour. Is it possible for my student to choose between a 5-lesson package or a 10-lesson package for the same class?
