How Do I Change The Country On Udemy?

Recently I moved from the USA to India for good. And being a user of Udemy, I wanted to check out some courses in Udemy. I noticed before logging in the prices of the courses was being displayed in INR and when I logged in, the prices changed to USD. So I had to change Country in Udemy. But, how to change the country in udemy?

After little research, I realized that the price is usually displayed based on the currency ( location) the account was created initially. There was no way for the user to change the country for the profile/ account.

So I reached out to the helpdesk to change the country in udemy along with the currency. And as usual, it was taken care of promptly. If you want to change the country and the currency after you move from a country, directly reach out to the helpdesk with the request, and they will take care of it for you. While you are at it, please make sure you are not using a VPN and not pretending to be in someplace you are not. Udemy is smart enough to detect your IP address. In fact, any site can pick up your IP address.

Thanks for reaching out. 

I have gone ahead and changed your account country to India as you requested.

The currency you see on the Udemy site is tied to the country where you first created your account. But, now that your account country has been changed, you should see Indian rupees on the site moving forward.

If you do not see INR after reading this email, please try clearing your cache and cookies.

Please let us know if you have any other questions, and we’ll be here to help.
Best regards,
Ann.

How To Change Currency In Udemy?

There are two ways to change the currency to see the currency of the country you are logging in from. One way is, if you do not have much with the previous or original udemy account, you can close that and open a new one locally so that the currency will be displayed correctly.

The second option is to contact Udemy support and ask them to update your location and currency.

udemy Is From Which Country?

Udemy was founded in California, USA, in the year of 2010.

Udemy Showing Different Prices

This can happen due to some common reasons. First and most common, there is a sale going on for new students, and you are not a new student, so when you log in, you see an increased price.

The other reason could be, there was a two days sale, and now that is over, that is why the price has increased. Try to find a coupon. Often the course creators offer coupons on their website that you can use to get a 90 – 95% discount.

Is udemy Available In India?

Yes, It is. When you visit Udemy from India, you will see udemy course fees in INR.

They have an office in Gurgaon too –

5th Floor, WeWork, Two Horizon Centre, Golf Course Rd, DLF Phase 5, Sector 43, Gurugram, Haryana 122002

Is udemy Indian?

They do have an office in India now. Initially founded in the USA. And Udemy site was launched by Gagan Biyani. Otherwise, Udemy is not Indian.

Udemy Transfer Course From One Account To Another

If you have courses in both accounts, you might want to drop a note to the support desk and ask them to merge them. PRovide the main account details which you would like to keep. And if you are planning to create an account locally and pull existing courses from an old account, I would suggest closing the new one and drop a message to the support desk to change your email or change location and currency.

Why Do udemy Prices Change?

My best guess is that when you first checked the price, there was some kind of sale going on and now that has ended. Do not worry, check the course instructor’s name and google, you might find a discount coupon anyway.

While blogging was one of my hobbies that I picked up in college, I fell in love with the stock market in the year 2014. I purchased my first stock in 2008, and I sold them all after 2009. I did not know the power of compounding. Which was a HUGE MISTAKE. I intended to help everyone understand why we need to invest in stocks, hence I started this blog.
