Train the Trainer Part 5: Analytics

Please note: the information outlined in this article is for Embodia Instructors only.  

Important information about payments and currencies

Embodia is a Canadian company. While there are some instructors that opt to charge in US Dollars, the majority of our courses are in Canadian Dollars (CAD) and thus your revenue from the sales of your courses will be in CAD. Non-Canadian instructors probably don’t own a bank account in CAD, so in order for your revenue to be deposited in your bank account, the bank, either the originating bank (i.e. Embodia’s bank) or the destination bank (i.e. your bank) will need to do a currency conversion for which they take an additional fee (roughly between 2 to 3% of the transfer amount).

You can opt-in to use an online service called Transferwise ( that can significantly reduce loss in revenue due to bank fees. This service is completely safe for payment transfer as the payment will be deposited directly into your local bank account (usually within a day or two from the date of the transfer).

The table below is an example that summarizes the fees for a traditional bank compared to Transferwise for 3 different CAD amounts being transferred to a USD account. Please bear in mind that these amounts are for illustration purposes since the fees constantly change as the exchange rate of different currencies changes.
