  • And count of sessions which the price represents.

In other words, the price is for given count of sessions.
Pricing example: You have a schedule with 12 live sessions. If you set price 100 USD and "Count of sessions" - 4, then the schedule will be with recurrent payment with 3 payments (12/4=3) each by 100 USD. If you set price 500 USD and "Count of sessions" - 12 then the schedule will be one time payment at the beginning 500 USD.
