Free plan or paid plan?
LearningStone charges per environment or “Workspace”. A workspace contains one or more active “groupspaces” which can be a collaborative training groups, groups of coachees, groups of people following elearning courses on their own etc.
An organization or independent professional can create one free (forever) workspace without a credit card. You can always prepare your programs and even train or coach up to 20 people for free!
When you have more than 20 participants or you want to add your house style you can choose to upgrade to a paid version without starting again.
A workspace with a paid plan has more groupspaces, its own design, more members, sharing of content and events between groupspaces, a direct URL and more.
Paid plans have an unlimited free archive for old or inactive groups. So if you need 5 active groupspaces at the same time (with as many in your archive as needed), just choose PRO 5.
Support, training, & services
We offer free support during your first setup to help you get the best out of LearningStone and free support if you have questions later. Support is also available for free plans. If you want to be trained or want to outsource some work, check services and training.
What do you pay per user?
LearningStone doesn’t charge per user and users never have to pay themselves. We try and keep everything as simple as possible. The prices are per workspace with a certain amount of active groupspaces (the training, coaching group or collaboration group) and a maximum number of participants (and remember, we don’t count archived groups!). If you fill your workspace to the max the cost per user can be as low as 30-40 cents per user per month. In other situations, the cost per user is less than around $ 1 / € 1 per participant per month.
How does the 30-day free trial work?
If you cancel a new paid plan within 30 days (downgrade to free or delete workspace) of signing up you won’t be charged a thing. There is no free trial if you are upgrading from a free plan to a paid plan.

Charity and in need of a discount?
I need lots of workspaces with lots of skins
You can opt for several individual workspaces with a paid plan. If you need a lot of workspaces, you might want the Pro 100 which includes unlimited workspaces and designs.
Can I change my plan at any moment?
Yes, you can! Go to Workspace Settings > Workspace Account and you can change the plan. A new month contract will start right away but you will only be charged at the beginning of the next month. If you are paying by invoice for a year, we will send a new invoice with a discount for what you already paid. We do not refund anything if you downgrade.
Do I have to sign a long-term contract?
No, there are no long-term contracts or commitments on your part unless you need an invoice before paying. In that case you need to choose the year-plan and we will send an invoice. In all other cases you simply pay month-to-month. If you cancel, you won’t be billed again.
Credit-cards, invoices and refunds
We accept Visa, MasterCard and American Express if you want to pay each month. We send an invoice automatically when we charge your card. If you need an invoice before you pay, opt for the yearly plan which will give 30 days to pay by bank or PayPal. Yearly Invoices will be sent at the start of each period. If the service is discontinued within two weeks of receiving a yearly invoice, the invoice will be credited so you don’t need to pay for a new period unnecessarily. No partial refunds are given if a service is stopped at a later date.
